1/4 of All Encrypted Traffic Comes through Torrents

1/4 of All Encrypted Traffic Comes through Torrents

Nowadays, Internet traffic is more and more encrypted, and BitTorrent transfers are accounting for a quarter of the encrypted downstream traffic in North America, second only to YouTube.

It seemed that today BitTorrent users keep searching for options to hide their download traces, but thus far there was almost no information on how much of all encrypted traffic relates to file-sharing. A recent report finally clarified the picture. The data was gathered to find out how much of all Internet traffic is encrypted, and what the most popular sources are.

The outcomes of the research were the following: almost 30% of all downstream traffic is now encrypted, so you can understand that 2/3 of the traffic still remains unencrypted. As for the sources of encrypted traffic, YouTube currently accounts for most of it – over 11% of all downstream traffic comes from encrypted YouTube data, which makes it about 40% of all encrypted traffic. The second place is taken by BitTorrent (7.2% of the total downstream traffic), which accounts for almost 25% of all encrypted data.

However, the report only considers downstream traffic, while BitTorrent’s share of upstream traffic is usually much higher. In other words, the total percentage of all encrypted traffic will be well over 25%.

It should also be noted that before YouTube made the transition to support secure data transfers, BitTorrent was the most popular source of encrypted traffic. In the meantime, when Netflix moves to encryption by default, BitTorrent’s part may drop even further, while the overall traffic will keep growing.

Obviously, BitTorrent users are now increasingly using various anonymizing services to avoid troubles with copyright legislation.

Thanks to TorrentFreak for providing the source of the article.
