Safe Media Corp. Tells House Hearing “There are a smokescreen of misinformation about How Contaminated P2P Networks Operate”
Washington, DC & Hollywood, Calif. (Business Wire) 25 July 2007
Safe Media Corporation CEO and founder, outlined Safwat Fahmy, the dangers and risks of contaminated P2P networks (today Tuesday, July 24, 2007) in his written testimony before the U.S. House of Representatives Committee of Oversight and Government Reform, to the “unintended file sharing on peer-to-peer networks” to hear.
media safe Chairman concentrated as P2P networks work the characteristics and properties of the “contaminated” P2P networks. Fahmy also said in his written testimony as safe media technology has been developed to illegal copying of copyrighted materials on contaminated P2P networks, address and how they help consumers, students, businesses and our national security from the serious privacy, identity theft and security risks . protect
“layman’s terms, Peer to Peer networks (P2P) allows individual users, transfer files directly to each other without going through a central server,” said Fahmy. “In the traditional client / server model, the client sends requests to the server and the server responds to these requests and acts on them. This is how the popular download service iTunes operates and in this way,” MySpace “and “YouTube”. and work with the other hand, P2P networks, each computer serves as a peer and functions as a client with a layer of server functionality -. individual peers communicate and exchange files directly without being checked “
Fahmy said the committee hearing, “P2P networks have been developed to were limitations in bandwidth and processing / storage, as well to overcome some of the advantages of using P2P networks to the client-server model over. But to be honest who for historical reasons for the development of P2P networks do not want to compete in today’s world: limitations on bandwidth and processing / storage found by clustering many low-cost servers and the provision of broadband fiber even more powerful than P2P networks fixed supply “
“P2P technology is clearly a usable, freely available tool for research and education, and we support the legitimate use of P2P networks intact,” he said. “The legal and innovative uses of P2P technology to emphasize the importance of location to be between legitimate uses of P2P and ‘contaminated’ P2P networks to be distinguished.”
Fahmy also said: “It’s no secret that in terms of liability for the creation and distribution of a network user to transfer the illegally copyrighted material, the most popular file-sharing networks, no responsibility of ownership, content or the participants can be avoided. ” He referred to a precise, detailed and “no fogging” U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) report published in March, said: “The file-sharing programs represent a real and documented threat to the security of personal, corporate, and information the government. “
In his closing testimony Fahmy said. “As an experienced computer technologist (35 years), I would never recommend that Congress adopting a particular technology to address critical issues under consideration today mandate, but I think that only Sun individuals, companies and the U.S. economy from the dangers of contaminated P2P including identity theft protection for the Congress to to act firmly recommending that technical solutions are adopted, that eliminating the threat of contaminated P2P. “
safe media has a patent pending business solutions combining P2P Disaggregator technology (P2PD) and a Digital Internet Distribution Solution (DIDS) that prevents random access P2P networks users’ computers designed contaminated. P2PD is based on many advanced technologies that are designed specifically for network operation, which is far higher, scalable computing power than the network bandwidth it. It uses the following technologies:
Adaptive Fingerprinting and DNA markers: The P2PD library of all P2P clients and protocols is the world’s largest and most current collection of fingerprints and DNA markers and is updated every 3 hours.
Adaptive network patterns: Not all protocols can be easily identified with a single set of packets. As such, P2PD set to monitor packet flows and adapt its technology, which it is based have already seen and what it does now.
Intelligent libraries: safe media experience libraries are knowledge-based, created from the actual activity of the subnet and specific logic markers analyzed in addition to the derived power control pattern.
Remote update and self-healing: All maintenance updates, integrity checks, reason validation system housekeeping and self-defense are remotely performed on safe media servers with no delay in network operation.
No invasion of privacy of users: P2PD detection does not occur to user privacy, not to record and track user IP’s not decrypt, no traffic, and allows you to run all standard safety procedures (Tunneling, SSH, etc.).
Accuracy: P2PD is fully effective at forensically distinction between contaminated and non-contaminated P2P traffic with no false alarms (ie, identifying another protocol as the targeted protocol) whether encrypted or not.
Speed: P2PD works with network speed with little or no latency.
Fahmy stressed that such solutions would be best, without any additional burden for the people who will use the Internet reaches. “For safe media, we believe we have such a solution and I am confident that with the time on the market show that to the best technical solution we have,” he said.
