Does Your ID Hash Change?
« on: June 03, 2004, 12:42:32 AM »
Does your MUTE ID hash change every time you restart the app?  IMO it should, but I don't know if it does or not.  Anyone know for sure?

Yes, it does:

Each node in the MUTE network has a virtual address that it generates randomly each time it starts up

You know, I've read that thing like 5 or 6 times now, and I still don't have a full grasp of it.   :oops:   And I'm someone who, in the 5th grade, was reading at a college freshman level.  Understanding computer security, and well networks in general, is my Achilles's Heel.  Then again, maybe it could just be better written.  Yeah, that it.   :lol:

And thanks for the answer!  I appreciate it.
