Test networks are test networks, and so are accompanied by very appropriate disclaimers disavowing any assurances of stability, security, privacy, anonymity, etc. I understand that and will generally treat the network accordingly.
But it brings up a few questions regarding whether the technology is of necessity demonstrating inherent properties of design security, and the degree to which it is not, by virtue of having the vaults all hosted by a single entity (MaidSafe), any “viewports” built in currently to aid development, etc.
I’m sure someone with the right skills and knowledge could determine much of this by looking at Github, but that’s not me.
I don’t see how we could be implementing self auth and self encryption without that high level security already in place. Perhaps security of IPs could be compromised due to all nodes belonging to one entity, but not sure about that or other angles.
