Is Btsync 100% Private ?

Hi, simple question that I couldn't find an answer to easily.

 

Is anyone besides the recipient of the key able to see what type of files/data are being transferred over any network ?

 

I've read of Bittorrent users being reported by their ISPS for seeding/uploading torrents, is this possible with BTSync ?

 

Thanks

That does not answer my question, which is a pretty simple one. Or let me put it simpler...

 

Can anyone/thing at any time or place, regardless of motivation, identify what data I am transmitting, without me deliberately sharing my key with that person/object ?

 

Option 1) Yes

or

Option 2) No

 

A sharing of knowledge on option 1 (Yes), is optional but would be just awesome.

I've just posted a long thread about this, you can read it at http://forum.bittorrent.com/topic/26538-concerns-about-the-security-of-btsync/. It describes all the data which gets transfered and all possible security problems. For general use, you should be fine with BTSync, but always think carefully about trusting some closed-source softwares.

BTSync is designed to be secure and to allow getting access to data you synchronise only to secret owners. So,

Bittorrent does not know the way to identify the type of data and content you transfer unless you share your secret.
