The Information Security Group at the NRC has completed a demonstration of our privacy scanning technologies. PrivWatch uses a modified Limewire client to search the Gnutella Peer-to-Peer network for files containing private information. The results are then anonymized, summarized, and presented in an interactive Flex-based interface.
To view the PrivWatch demonstration, you will need a username and password, which you can get by contacting me.
PrivWatch was created to detect and monitor privacy breaches on the Gnutella Peer-to-Peer (P2P) network. With PrivWatch, you can view statistics about privacy breaches based on the type of information, the geographic patterns, and the trends over time.
