2) National Cyber Security Centre Finland (NCSC-FI) would "white list" the

certain IP is carrying 3th party traffic.
2.1) NCSC-FI would just "white list" the IP address if it is a static
2.2) If the IP address is dynamic NCSC-FI would automatically test every

IP addresses. After all, running an exit node is legal under the Finnish
