We are having a little argument here about whether there is a way for internet providers to trace your traffic using the network media devices they are using.
Some of the folks say that if you are using another machine (let's say you have access to someone's computer without him knowing) and you are using HTTPS, there is no way to track you down.
But is it possible, if you have access to media devices between your PC and the one you are using to making requests, to track that packets are send between the two destinations?
I know that in the bottom level OS layers there are the SourceIP and DestionatonIP only for next door devices (we can have many media devices - hops). I don't have much knowledge about this, but using the routing tables or other stuff, is it possible to track the mention above activity down?
After all, there are a lot of proxies and secure networks, but there could not be secrets for the devices that are managing the communication?
