But what little protection anonymous proxy servers and confidentiality agreements with ISP's and the like offered the average internet user will now dissapear into thin air
Minimum round-trip communications latency is measured between numerous stations on the network and known network addressed equipment to form a network latency topology map
Okay, I'm taking bets on how long it will take for some genius to create a randomizer that randomly alters the latency between two points...thereby thwarting Big Brother.
Place your bets!
There has to be more to this then just latency between two points.
Latency is not constant, it depends on the route the packets take and they do not always take the same route each and every time.

Albert Einstein once told Leon Breitling: God and the Universe are infinite and perfect and no man, given infinite time, will ever make anything perfect.
It turns out that Israel has had a potential wiretap on every phone in America for years, along with the ability to monitor and record who any person is calling, anywhere in America; information of great value even if one does not listen to the calls themselves. Amdocs, Inc. the company which sub contracts billing and directory services for phone companies around the world, including 90 percent of American phone companies, is owned by Israeli interests. Yet another company, Comverse Infosys, is suspected of having built a "back door" into the equipment permanently installed into the phone system that allows instant eavesdropping by law enforcement agencies on any phone in America. This includes yours.
