network triangulation (Re: Geo location to IP mapping)
Date: Mon, 15 May 2006 17:24:48 -0400 From: [email protected]
The NSA was granted a patent for an IP geo-location technology based on triangulation using latency measures.
It could probably be foiled by this patented technology: http://www.tinyurl.com/ebu6t which is equally reliable and useful. ;-) ObOp: Latency and jitter cause problems with triangulation. I find zipcode-level accuracy hard to believe for a predictive system.
