"The number of file-sharers disguising their BitTorrent activity with encryption is skyrocketing, and rising 10-fold in the last year, from four to 40 per cent according to the report. "Content filtering and packet shaping solutions are not long term viable solutions to eliminate illegal file sharing and identity theft associated with contaminated contaminated,

"The recording industry is winning court battles against illegal music downloading, said Fahmy. "I think this trend of encryption is absolutely a warning to music industry executives, who believe they can win this war against Illegal file sharing using conventional thinking and content recognition solutions," said Robert Foote, CTO (Chief Technical Officer) The executive responsible for the technical direction of an organization.

Foote contends that encrypted P2P requires a paradigm shift A dramatic change in methodology or practice. It often refers to a major change in thinking and planning, which ultimately changes the way projects are implemented. For example, accessing applications and data from the Web instead of from local servers is a paradigm shift. See paradigm. in thinking and technology. "P2PD is the new approach in the fight against contaminated P2P including contaminated Bit Torrent networks. SafeMedia has the only solution that was designed to stop encrypted contaminated networks, protecting user privacy, without requiring deep packet or content inspection, without measurable network latency and without time consuming and expensive acoustical finger printing, explained Foote.
"The trend towards encryption means current efforts by music publishers and government to cut a deal with ISPs to create a monitoring system to boot persistent copyright infringers off the internet, which we revealed last month, is likely to be rendered pointless, said writer Chris Williams of The Register."
"So-called content filtering software from Audible Magic cannot peer inside encrypted packets, either", said Neil Armstrong, products director at BT-owned ISP (1) See in-system programmable.

The rapid acceleration in encryption isn't limited to Bit Torrent users. Estimates say torrent traffic accounts for about between 50 and 60 per cent of all file-sharing.

In two years 95 percent of all contaminated BIT Torrent and P2P networks will be encrypted. SafeMedia's P2PD was developed and designed to identify and stop encrypted contaminated P2P and contaminated BIT Torrent networks. "Our decentralized de·cen·tral·ize
