Voodoo Networking: run that by me again?

Freewheeling spot to chew the fat on anything cryptostorm-related that doesn't fit elsewhere (i.e. support, howto, &c.). Criticism & praise & brainstorming & requests for explanation... this is where it goes when it's hot & ready for action! :-)

Voodoo Networking: run that by me again?

Postby TemporaryBlip » Sat Oct 08, 2016 5:21 pm

From reading the other threads, this is what I can gather about the flow of traffic in voodoo networking:
  1. Client sends encrypted traffic to entry node
  2. Entry node hides client address
  3. Entry node forwards encrypted traffic to central node
  4. Central node forwards encrypted traffic to exit node
  5. Exit node determines destination address
  6. Exit node forwards traffic back to central node
  7. Central node decrypts traffic (as usual)
  8. Central node sends traffic to destination (as usual)
  9. Destination sends back traffic to exit node
  10. Exit node forwards traffic to central node
  11. Central node encrypts traffic (as usual)
  12. Central node forwards encrypted traffic to the entry node
  13. Entry node determines client address
  14. Entry node sends encrypted traffic to client
However, there are still some things I'm skeptical about...
  • How is the client/destination address determined?
  • Does the entry/exit node keep it in memory or decrypt it on the fly?
  • Does the client establish a shared secret with the entry/exit node?
  • What stops the central node from simply matching traffic in step 4 to traffic in step 6?
Sorry if these questions have already been answered; I have yet to find something that consolidates this information and I'm really curious about how this all works.
