    Hi,

    I've been a lurker on this forum since I switched to NOD32 9 months or so ago and have learnt a lot in the period since.

    However I have a question that I don't think has been covered........

    How does NOD interact with software that encrypts your datastream over the web, for example I have recently moved to somewhere that isn't served by broadband so I'm using the communities radio/wifi solution and have been using Steganos Internet Anonym VPN on a trial to encrypt all of my data traffic as the network is totally open.

    I assume that NOD would be unable to detect anything via Imon at all and would only be able to react via Amon once the incoming data had been un-encrypted on my machine. Is this correct? and if so have I slightly weakened my vrius protection as a trade against my privacy?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Regards

    Paul

    Hi Paul,
    Steganos Internet Anonym VPN implements a Virtual Network Interface which is interagted in the system like any other Network Interface. The TCP traffic is tunneled by encrypted UDP-Packets. For NOD it is a usual TCP data stream which should be handled as any other TCP traffic.
