Investigation of Intrusion Detection on PCs and Handhelds


According to Wikipedia, "WikiLeaks is an international, online, self-described not-for-profit organization publishing submissions of private, secret, and classified media from anonymous news sources, news leaks, and whistleblowers." In November 2010, WikiLeaks released the content of U.S. State department diplomatic cables.

Governments worldwide would like to ensure that their secret information is not released to the public. For example, possible leaks could come from government employees finding and sending secret information out of their building.

Project Description

This project will develop the plans and possibly an initial prototype for an intruder detection prototype system that monitors users computer input for intruder-like operational commands.

See references, and particularly the video associated with the first reference. The second reference describes a multi-level strategy for intruder detection.
