@Kevin - it isn't that large of a number of routers normally. It may travel through 10 to 15, but generally, at least 1/3 of those are on the ISP's network and another 1/3 or so on the recipient's ISP's network. The ones in between tend to be backbone networks, but they still care about entry and exit points on their network for traffic for billing and peering negotiations. They may or may not log every packet, but if they start noticing a weird pattern, they are likely to make note of it.

comment Does it matter which key is considered private and which public?
Can we add more clarification here about if this is talking specifically about RSA or about asymmetric crypto in general? It makes a huge and potentially catastrophic difference.
