A $200 privacy device has been killed, and no one knows why

A security researcher has abruptly cancelled next month’s scheduled unveiling of a privacy device designed to mask Internet users’ physical locations.
It’s a move that has both disappointed privacy advocates and aroused suspicions.

Ben Caudill, a researcher with Rhino Security Labs, took the unusual step of saying he no longer plans to release the software or hardware schematics
for his so-called ProxyHam box. He said the devices already created have been destroyed. Caudill has offered no explanation for the killing of the
project, but he has reportedly ruled out both intellectual property disputes and Federal Communications Commission licensing concerns.

So Ben Caudill strung us along for several months about creating and making available a device that can hide your IP and your identity. Now all of a
sudden, he has withdrawn his project. Here’s an excerpt for this:

“Caudill has offered no explanation for the killing of the project, but he has reportedly ruled out both intellectual property disputes and Federal
Communications Commission licensing concerns.”

Well that is interesting while you drink your coffee. I think he was visited by the alphabet agencies. This “product” would hinder NSA’s Carnivore
program and anything that was developed after that.
Or it was all a ruse to waste VC money?
