comment How easy is it for hackers to gain unauthorized access to resources on an Android phone?
Nothing of the attack is explained. If the phone was rooted, then the normally security measures would be disabled and this type of compromise would occur.

comment Man-in-the-middle Blue coat proxy ssl or what?
This doesn't answer the OP's question. This is a comment on the other answers. With a little more rep, you can post comments.

comment Do VPNs really mask your identity or is it a facade?
I'm not sure that a proxy has the same problem as a VPN (re: datagrams) - the traffic sent from a proxy would not contain data about the source (attribution is handled internally, often by using port translation). Is your focus VPN, or proxy, too?

it looks like the OP isn't concerned with the content, but the attribution - if so, the computing power reduces significantly

comment Is SSL over HIP (Host Identity Protocol) possible?
it looks like the 2 technologies are different enough that although it could be technically possible, that it might not practically work in a general sense. I'm curious to learn more, though.

comment Is SSL over HIP (Host Identity Protocol) possible?
@yyannecc I completely agree, and your question is valid - it looks like TLS should be able to run on top, but from the ietf documents I read to answer your question, it looks like it would be a specialized overlay to make that happen.

ok - so your focus is on networking only, that's helpful to address your question

comment Do VPNs really mask your identity or is it a facade?
The relevant question is: "mask your identity from whom?" Governments can simply ask the VPN provider for their logs, for instance.

And she only has that one email account? nothing linked to her iCloud, etc.? There is simply too many vectors to consider.

comment Someone updated my friend's twitter profile after an internet forum abuse
@SergeShultz what if the attacker gained access to her email account first, discovered the message board and the Twitter account details from there? I think you may be making a large assumption as to the sequence of attacks. As we do not have any hard details, we too have to make assumptions, making this question impossible to answer definitively.

comment Can I use same suricata instance for both IDS (for L3,4) and IPS (for L3,L4,L7)?
Welcome to Security.SE. Unfortunately, this question is a software-specific configuration question. You might get better answers over at Suricata support: suricata-ids.org/support
