I have no idea WTF you are talking about. A closed TCP port emits an RST. It even says so in the very link you posted:

"Receipt of a SYN message on a port where there is no process listening for connections."

Next time you try to be a smart-ass, get your facts straight. Idiot.

They're not only not convenient, they're also not secure in the sense that in order to work with your data, you have to decrypt it _somewhere_. Unless you secure erase your free drive space after zipping your files back up and deleting the unencrypted copies, I wouldn't consider that data to be secure anymore, at all.

There is no job you can do if the other party is not trustworthy - other than limiting your communication. All this convoluted header bullshit is useless.

Stop crying for a legal solution when there's a perfect technical one: STOP TALKING TO TRACKING SERVERS! Advertisers had their chance. They failed it. So ignore them and let them sulk in their own bullshit.
