Vonage That doesn't include tapping your own conversations. It is easy to trap packets

That doesn't include tapping your own conversations.

It is easy to trap packets at one end or the other of a conversation. So for the sender (you) or the receiver to "intercept" their own phone calls is like shooting fish in a barrel. I don't think it proves a lot.

Can a third party really tap into your conversation from some other node in the network?

Just asking. You seem to know about this stuff.

If so, why hasn't anyone tried to do this? Why do we not read about this in the paper every day?

My gut reaction is that it is not as easy as you make it out to be. Tapping your own call is easy, as you can access the entire packet stream and also know when the call is being made and know the addresses of the packets.

But I suspect that it would not be as easy for someone elsewhere at some random node on the net.

One would have to trap the packets of data at some node in the stream, correct? And one would have to insure that all packets traveled through that node, right? And you'd have to be looking for particular packets and the right time, too.

Frankly, for $24.99 a month, I'm not too worried about it. I'm not doing anything illegal or that top secret (that isn't already Patent Pending).

And there is darn little anyone could garner from my phone calls that would be worth much.

If you want a total lack of security, an analog POTS line is far easier to tap. Heck, anyone with a couple of bucks can buy the necessary gear at the local spy store. Even a moron with 50 feet of copper and an old dial phone can tap into your network interface box.

Are you sure you are not over-thinking this?

Do you REALLY want to go back to twisted pair? That is more secure? Sorry, but I think you are being alarmist on this issue.
