"KickassTorrents goes secure, encrypts traffic for all visitors"

KickassTorrents is the first large torrent site to bump up its security and force SSL encryption for all visitors. This makes it impossible for outsiders, Internet providers included, to monitor page visits or snoop on data being sent.

 

Now that was a bit surprising to be honest. Hey, I won't complain. Any site that gets SSL encryption is a good thing...especially in this case if you download your torrents from KAT. In the wake of this news, I wonder how many other torrent sites will add SSL encryption...

Suck on that SSL encryption Mr. ISP.

  I wonder how many other torrent sites will add SSL encryption - especially The Pirate Bay, since they are the largest torrent website and all...

if your isp doesnt know the content of the files your torrenting then its impossible for them to determine weather its illegal

That just means traffic to their site is encrypted. BitTorrent itself is still unecrypted.

I think you can have it encrypted in the options somewhere unless I'm mistaken.(I don't use torrent software very often so it's possible I'm just crazy, since Comcast pretty much shoots me down right away)

Let's encrypt our data on a website that is technically legal, but let our IP be distributed freely to every client connected to that torrent. Kind of futile, isn't it?

EDIT: After some reading, the BitTorrent protocol does support encryption, but mainly to obfuscate the traffic, not really for security.

Yes, now my...

 

erm...

 

Linux distros are coming through securely!

 

*After torrenting several hundreds gigabytes of data* Man these distros are getting bigger each day.
