The NSA was granted a patent for an IP geo-location technology based
on triangulation using latency measures.
It could probably be foiled by this patented technology:
which is equally reliable and useful. ;-)
ObOp: Latency and jitter cause problems with triangulation. I find
zipcode-level accuracy hard to believe for a predictive system.
