Abstrakt Abstract:

This Master thesis is a contribution to develope
Multimedia security mechanisms for various P2P
file sharing environments. Objective of this
research thesis is to design a software tool for
Multimedia business environments to fight against
the copyright infringement in various P2P file
sharing networks. In order to fulfil this objective, a
combined implementation of two independent
mechanisms designed at Fraunhofer IPSI is
required. So far, the combined implementation
does not yet exist for any P2P network. So, the first
objective is to design a most comprehensive
architecture for their implementation and the
second objective is to validate that implementation
built on top of the architecture. To do so, we have
chosen BitTorrent network for implementation and
validation.

Populärvetenskaplig beskrivning / Popular science summary: The main objective of this research thesis work is to design a software tool for identifying
copyright violated works in various P2P networks. In fact, P2P networks are the prominent
networks for such copyright violations. To do so, a combined implementation of two
independent mechanisms described in chapter 2 is required. This combined implementation
prior to this thesis work had not existed in the form of a concrete software tool. So, the first
objective is to design a most comprehensive architecture for their implementation and the
second objective is to validate that implementation built on our architecture. Hence we have
chosen BitTorrent network for implementation and validation. The mechanisms we
addressed in our implementation are:
Passive Mechanism: Digital Watermarking is the passive mechanism which is used to add
information to multimedia files to be protected. This active part is just used to achieve our
goal but not focused in validation because of the reason mentioned in the 1.4 section
Active Search Mechanism: In order to fight against illegal copies an active search mechanism
scanning for potential copyright violations is needed. Any P2P network implementation must
maintain this framework extendable to other P2P networks. This is the area focused in
validation phase.
