comment Plausible deniability regarding KeepassX files
So, this boils down to a question of how to pass off a 2nd file as the original and how to maintain the 2nd file as the original changes?

Also, are you looking to get into IT or IT Security? Both are VERY wide and diverse fields. In order for this question to be answerable, you would have to narrow it down considerably.

There have been multiple variants of this question on this site. Do any of those provide direction?

Except that you announced to the world that you have those files by posting on this site? :)

comment Building a DoS and DDoS Mitigation System from scratch
re: "distributed system" you missed my point. If the last-mile ISPs receive data from the DDoS target routers, which identifies the characteristics of the attack, then the last-mile nodes can handle the 'bad' traffic before it chokes the backbone. This is the basic premise that my development team was working on. If the attack changes sources, the network is already on alert for the attack signature and can respond faster if new sources come online. Small code-base. Small CPU-overhead. Low cost. This is one way of tackling the problem.

comment Building a DoS and DDoS Mitigation System from scratch
I worked on a development team that was creating anti-DDoS systems. My point is that, yes, it is a big topic, and yes, you have limited space to address the OP's question, but you didn't use your space to talk about the relevant points. Your answer is more of a dismissal and talking about purchasing, not designing a system.
