So how do you place faith it the security of the server short of performing a penetration test? Surely there must be some way to test the security. Also how do you test for a DNS leak which I am assuming is the same as DNS entropy? No, what I meant was a port address that is assigned to say a torrent client and that port address being logged e.g. http://forum.encryptica.com/index.php?topic=24.0. Be keen to understand what this means. So are you saying it is harder to piece everything together if there is a multi-hop service? Also what do you mean it won't give me any extra protection against malicious hacker-y types?
