Subject [Bug 59765] provide a way to obfuscate/hash IP addresses
Date Sat, 09 Jul 2016 15:35:50 GMT

--- Comment #2 from Luca Toscano <> ---
The implementation seems not super difficult, but I have a couple of questions:

1) How would it be better to set the "obfuscate" mode to on? Something like
ExtendedStatus in core or by other means?

2) hashing every single IP address with a reasonable function could be good for
a lot of reasons (no need for a shared state to assign the same value to the
same IP over multiple requests, variety in the hashing functions, etc..) but it
could also lead to resources waste while doing hash calculations on busy
servers. Would it be reasonable just to remove the "Client" column from status
and extended status? This concern might be not relevant with modern CPU, but it
is good in my opinion to discuss it.
