You could just send a stream of some uncomon ascii character, which you
filter out on the receiving end (if you wanted to this right, you could add
a simple escape mechanism for actually passing that character).
To avoid flooding the network and also bringing the machines on which its
running to its knees, you'd probably want to add a bandwidth-choke
mechanism to run the white noise at some reasonable rate. You'd have to limit
the real traffic output to the same rate. Link encryption over a broadcast
network is a tricky business.

For the next couple of months, I have absolutely no free hacking time.
Things on the stack include:
- ESM 1.0
- Diffie-Hellman encrypting and authenticating Telnet (almost ready...)
- CFS 1.3
- The course
- The book
- My real work
So I don't even have the time to figure out whether I have the interest.
