ChatTrack: Archiving and Searching Chat and Instant Messages
Project Award Date: 09-30-2003
The ChatTrack project addresses the two issues of inappropriate and deceptive usage of the net and information security. It aims at enhancing the safety of users in Internet chat rooms (Instant Messaging) and in assisting entities in logging and categorizing chat activity (Chat Rooms) .
The project's goals are (1) to provide a real-time archiving system for IRC Chat servers that captures and stores chat messages on the server so that they can be searched by keyword and by username, and (2) to provide the ability to classify archived dialogues by topic and allow topic-based retrieval and replay of chat sessions.
