Abstract of the project
The project looks at file transfer over the internet in order to address
Paedophilia, IP theft/Copy-write and Terrorism issues on the world wide web. the
project has developed tools to detect illicit FTP servers set up on compromised
system and forensically examine them remotely. the project also looks at
real-time traffic monitoring and pattern matching along with many other things.
The end concept is to be able to detect transfers as they happen and stop them
if they warrant it. the tools set will only be available to law enforcement and
intelligence agencies around the world.
