I think that would be one way to alleviate the concerns, yes. Also note that we are talking about special category of users who have somewhat more control over their network - not a typical BB user sitting behind a NAT. Another important question IMO is how these data is going to be used. Several people I talked to were supporting of the idea of instigating an "anti-spoofing" movement among the ISPs, where in order to get (and stay) on a public list of networks who care one needs to pass anti-spoofing tests. Atlas and Spoofer would be instrumental in this effort.

Run intrusive or dangerous tests on this probe" ? This would create a subset of probes that could be used for more interesting tests, an d would allow for greater visibility into things. > > W > > --- > It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problem just with potatoes. --Douglas Adams > >
