Hi Stephen,

minor terminology correction. It's the "primary block" that we can't
encrypt -- the one containing addresses etc.

As you say, bundle-in-bundle encapsulation is a solution but ... you
have to have *some* addressing *somewhere*.  Were I a professor, I'd
assign that as an advanced exercise for the class :)


p.s. I listened on the audio feed and thought it was a good session --
well done.
