Title (EN) IDENTIFYING UNAUTHORIZED COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS BASED ON THEIR MEMORY CONTENTS
(FR) IDENTIFICATION DE SYSTEMES DE COMMUNICATION NON AUTORISES A L'AIDE DES CONTENUS DE MEMOIRE DE CES DERNIERS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An authorized client communication system seeking access to a host communication system may be identified by locating a memory segment within the client communication system that stores client software used to access the host computer system. The memory segment then is examined to determine whether the client software stored in the memory segment corresponds to client software for an official client communication system. Communications from the client communication system are terminated when the client software in the memory segment is determined to diverge from software for an official client communication system.
(FR)Selon cette invention, un système de communication client autorisé demandant l'accès à un système de communication hôte peut être identifié à l'aide d'un segment de mémoire placé dans le système de communication client, qui stocke le logiciel client utilisé pour avoir accès au système informatique hôte. Ce segment de mémoire est ensuite examiné pour déterminer si le logiciel client stocké dans le segment de mémoire correspond au logiciel client pour un système de communication client officiel. Les communications à partir du système de communication client sont arrêtées lorsque le logiciel client dans le segment de mémoire est déterminé comme étant différent du logiciel pour un système de communication client officiel.
