comment How can you be caught using Private VPN when there's no logs about who you are?
@Svetlana That was what was confusing me- the fact that they claim to be "logless" and yet somehow maintain the ability to suspend abusive users or provide logs when subpoenaed. I suppose they're simply lying..

comment Can a VPN avoid the Prism Surveillance Programme?
@AJHenderson- Ah, understood. So the vulnerability lies in the possibility (read-fact) that the ISPs on either side of the VPN node would simply log traffic and turn it over to the government for traffic analysis.

comment Can a VPN avoid the Prism Surveillance Programme?
@AJHenderson Could you expand upon your comment that "While the contents of your IP traffic are protected by a VPN, unless a time delay is incorporated, it is fairly easy to match an incoming and outgoing packet based on timing in most cases. Thus, it would likely still be completely possible for your VPN traffic to be traced without revealing the contents." I'm curious as to how this is implemented.

Re: comments made by @AndreasBonini and deed02392, I'm puzzled by how a logless VPN provider such as Private Internet Access could hand over a user's data if "We absolutely do not maintain any VPN logs of any kind. We utilize shared IP addresses rather than dynamic or static IPs, so it is not possible to match a user to an external IP...We will not share any information with third parties without a valid court order. With that said, it is impossible to match a user to any activity on our system since we utilize shared IPs and maintain absolutely no logs."

comment Secure alternative to e-mail
Is it possible to route PGP-encrypted messages over the Tor network? (Take, for example, two individuals running TAILS, Thunderbird + Enigmail and the email provider of their choosing.) I feel that this would address both privacy and anonymity.
