ng2.template///6868048887248005916 What are the consequences?
ng2.template///1411398404280870617 In theory, someone with enough technical skills could create a script that tracks which IP is downloading which video. In practice, this is much more difficult because:
ng2.template///6870500454322981404 An HTTP request has to be sent on each tracker for each video to spy. If we want to spy all PeerTube's videos, we have to send as many requests as there are videos (so potentially a lot)
ng2.template///4042605201005159699 For each request sent, the tracker returns random peers at a limited number. For instance, if there are 1000 peers in the swarm and the tracker sends only 20 peers for each request, there must be at least 50 requests sent to know every peer in the swarm
ng2.template///8817667841110447397 Those requests have to be sent regularly to know who starts/stops watching a video. It is easy to detect that kind of behaviour
ng2.template///4100327951517495019 If an IP address is stored in the tracker, it doesn't mean that the person behind the IP (if this person exists) has watched the video
ng2.template///7196664247366401915 The IP address is a vague information: usually, it regularly changes and can represent many persons or entities
ng2.template///31c95b65cb16d779069e65e82e68690f712c4a5c Web peers are not publicly accessible: because we use WebRTC inside the web browser (<x id="START_LINK" ctype="x-a" equiv-text="&lt;a&gt;"/>with the WebTorrent library<x id="CLOSE_LINK" ctype="x-a" equiv-text="&lt;/a&gt;"/>), the protocol is different from classic BitTorrent. When you are in a web browser, you send a signal containing your IP address to the tracker that will randomly choose other peers to forward the information to. See <x id="START_LINK_1" ctype="x-a" equiv-text="&lt;a&gt;"/>this document<x id="CLOSE_LINK" ctype="x-a" equiv-text="&lt;/a&gt;"/> for more information
ng2.template///7812408733559506009 The worst-case scenario of an average person spying on their friends is quite unlikely. There are much more effective ways to get that kind of information.
ng2.template///8484650229450883706 How does PeerTube compare with YouTube?
ng2.template///6213340208914097303 The threats to privacy with YouTube are different from PeerTube's. In YouTube's case, the platform gathers a huge amount of your personal information (not only your IP) to analyze them and track you. Moreover, YouTube is owned by Google/Alphabet, a company that tracks you across many websites (via AdSense or Google Analytics).
ng2.template///2676074687792256808 What can I do to limit the exposure of my IP address?
ng2.template///8804946818315976118 Your IP address is public so every time you consult a website, there is a number of actors (in addition to the final website) seeing your IP in their connection logs: ISP/routers/trackers/CDN and more. PeerTube is transparent about it: we warn you that if you want to keep your IP private, you must use a VPN or Tor Browser. Thinking that removing P2P from PeerTube will give you back anonymity doesn't make sense.
ng2.template///401806741040118292 What will be done to mitigate this problem?
ng2.template///7404776804526394585 PeerTube wants to deliver the best countermeasures possible, to give you more choice and render attacks less likely. Here is what we put in place so far:
ng2.template///8635362984201852982 We set a limit to the number of peers sent by the tracker
ng2.template///8903417899533541365 We set a limit on the request frequency received by the tracker
ng2.template///2470460396724373169 Allow instance admins to disable P2P from the administration interface
ng2.template///85755719c08571f7f5b7c5b391329b7e4e7ccc7b Automatic video redundancy from some instances: one doesn't know if the IP downloaded the video on purpose or if it a server
ng2.template///5991790391344625653 Ultimately, remember you can always disable P2P by toggling it in the video player, or just by disabling WebRTC in your browser.
