If you work for a 3-letter paranoid agency, yes. It takes an IDS
(intrusion detection system) which does real-time scanning of all
packets, along with very strict policies in place to specifically
targeting NAT to ring alarm bells in case NAT is detected.
There are very legit uses for NAT. Say you connect your smartphone (or
feature phone) via Bluetooth to your PC, to connect receive e-mail on
the phone without using your mobile providerĀ“s data network... bang,
it does NAT.
