Wikileaks Host Will Anonymize Customer Traffic

Bahnhof, the Swedish broadband provider and host of Wikileaks, is going to run all customer traffic through an encrypted VPN service. This will help ISP neutralize the country’s oncoming enforcement of the European Data Retention Directive. As not even ISP will be able to monitor its customers’ activities, logging them will also be impossible. Failing to receive logs necessary to complete their chain of investigation, anti-piracy outfits may become very unhappy.

Back in 2009, Swedish government introduced the IPRED (Intellectual Property Rights Enforcement Directive), which granted copyright owners the right to obtain the personal data of suspected copyright infringers. This forced Jon Karlung, CEO of broadband provider Bahnhof, to try and take measures to protect his subscribers’ privacy. In a few days the ISP stopped logging subscriber activities, so that it didn’t have any information to store and pass over to anti-piracy outfits.

Today, in the face of the country’s incoming implementation of the European Data Retention Directive that will require the ISPs to store information, the broadband provider, know for being Wikileaks’ Swedish host, decided to make a step further to protect the anonymity of its subscribers. In the near future, every subscriber of Bahnhof will be provided a free anonymizing service by default. Jon Karlung explained that they are planning to let all their traffic go through a VPN service. In this case, not even Bahnhof will know about their customers online activities, which means there will be not much to log, or, in other words, not much useful to pass over to the anti-piracy outfits.

Technically, the first-hop connection the user makes with ISP’s servers when going online will be a stealth section, while everything happening after that moment is not its responsibility and is outside Bahnhof. The data before the first-hop connection will be irrelevant for anti-piracy organizations.

Meanwhile, other Swedish broadband providers may experience some commercial implications in case they fail to address privacy concerns in the same manner. Conceivably, other Internet service providers have plans to follow suit. However, they are yet to be officially announced.

As for those Bahnhof subscribers who don’t want to remain anonymous, they can opt-in to be spied on, for just some $8.00 extra monthly fee.

aSBo avatar"European Data Retention Directive" while they have been wasting their time on this the numbers of people sharing on the Indian subcontinent & Asia has grown enormously. Thank god file sharer's & the community will always be one step ahead. Whether we choose to use VPN to stay anonymous or scream from the roof top "i steal digital content" the EU stuffed shirts & bureaucrats can ki$$ my a$$ & play my tunes on their iPods in Brussels... :))

TDaddy avatarIt's a shame that Bahnhof is protecting a terrorist organization such as WikiLeaks. I totally disagree with the fact that Bahnhof should be allowed to operate under these circumstances. .... That being said, I always support the use of VPNs and Proxy connections for non-terrorist users and organizations.

No avatarAnyone who thinks wikileaks is a TERRORIST ORGANIZATION is either a total moron or completely brainwashed. Given the state of the USA, it's probably all of the above.

Same for anyone who thinks that of the guy(s) that leaked the information in the first place. America is corrupt and our leadership honestly doesn't give a crap about freedom or what's best for us. Hell, if it wasn't for copyrights and corporate corruption (or capitalism in general for that matter) we'd probably already be living in space or some crap.

I seriously do question Assange's motive though, he seems like an attention whore.
