Deep Packet Inspection and Your Privacy Online

TorrentFreak is discussing deep packet inspection and what it means to your privacy online. I don’t know about you but that just sounds so…”invasive,” doesn’t it?

One of the new weapons in this conflict, is called ‘Deep Packet Inspection‘ (DPI). An innocuous sounding name for a technology that basically means ‘Internet monitoring’. Deep packet inspection is a technology that some companies are salivating over, including advertisers and entertainment lobby groups like the MPAA. With it, their dreams can come true, some of them anyway.
