Usenet SSL encryption

Secure and encrypted Newsgroup access with extra anonymity

SSL (Secure Sockets Layers) is a way of securing your transactions and reinforcing your anonymity within Usenet. In regards to a usenet service, is encryption between two points, you and the usenet provider. Its uses are primarily to avoid throttling, and traffic shaping however it is heavily marketed as a means to "protect your activities from prying eyes". Avoid any filtering from Usenet access protocols. SSL is like a tunnel, a channel for secure communication (encrypted by a 256 bit key) between two  machines (client and server). SSL guarantees secure and anonymous downloads from Newsgroups. Usenet providers use the same security protocols as online banks (the same padlock icons!).
