Bittorrent Protocol

Recommended Posts

As I understand, the BitTorrent technology used by the BitTorrent client and BitTorrent Sync encrypts transmitted data. I'd like to clarify exactly what is securely transmitted and what is not. Would an administrator on my machine or a network admin (or even my ISP) be able to find out the following:

- types of files transmitted (images, text, etc)?

- sizes of files transmitted?

- file names and path?

- that I'm using BitTorrent (ie would they be able to tell that the data is transmitted via BitTorrent protocols)?

- when Sync checks the two clients for changes to sync, are the file names and properties that are being compared transmitted securely? Would a pair of prying eyes be able to figure out the directory structure of the folder being synced?

Thanks.
