    5858 * __How safe is this 'bootstrap' process?__
    59    * ''duck: what is safe? who'd ask this question? not sure about this one''
     59   * Each router on the network has a unique cryptographic fingerprint. When a new router intializes, it will make requests to one of several servers on the nomral internet to provide an initial "seed" of the network, or a partial list of other I2P routers. The remote server, over a normal http:// connection, will provide a list of identities of routers which allows our newly initialized router to talk to these routers on the I2P network and find new router, or peers, to talk to. Each indetity is a cryptographic fingerprint, so forging these is to all intents and purposes impossible. There is some discussion of further securing this initial handshake via a forced https:// connection.
