I am considering starting up a passive
BWauth in order to understand how they
work and fix bugs.

What is the minimum and ideal hardware
configuration for a BWauth?

Have my eye on an OVH config with
unmetered 1G, a fuzzy promise
of 500mbps minimum bandwidth and
a 3.4GHz 4core/8thread AES-NI CPU:

The server could be turned up in any of
their facilities:

Or is 10G a requirement?  (out of my league)

Is all code here


or is there more?  Are uncommitted
fixes lying around anywhere?
