I’ve written before that Skype is saving our mission thousands of dollars each year in telcom costs. But is it secure? We have personnel in some fairly hairy places…are they being listened in on?
Probably not, expert testers say. It turns out that plucking a Skype call out of net traffic is pretty difficult. Check out the article here.

But guess what. He came away with the sense that Skype traffic is more difficult to block and detect than Skype's many detractors think it is.
