note that the encryption based partitioning in storm 2.0 for segregated
C&C is a layer above the DHT routing infrastructure over which these C&C
messages are delivered.
you don't need to attack the shared secret keys, nor the C&C message
payloads, merely the DHT transport required for C&C to function.
