Description

I see this mentioned for obfs2/3/4 pluggable transports in documentation but exactly does "look-like-nothing" mean? Does it mean it looks like regular clearnet traffic? What would someone who inspects the traffic like an ISP consider this type of traffic? Is it obvious to them that traffic has been scrambled/randomize?

Thank you.

This is a good question for the Q&A site.
