License for Internet Threat Analysis System Prototype Granted to Polish Police
The developed Internet threat analysis system prototype (MPI) is a tool for high precision Internet search that is dedicated for detecting potentially illegal human organ trades (e.g. selling kidneys) and human trafficking in openly accessible WWW services - this means that the system is lawful if used by police for investigation*.
*For example legal basis of this statement please refer to the Act on the Polish Police of 6 April 1990 (with amendments), Chapter 3 (“Scope of the Police powers”), Article 14.4 (in English).
On the other hand a search of an open Internet may bring an information valuable in forensic investigation - the system has already proven itself as a valuable forensics tool. The system has been tuned specifically for searching language texts using a unique and novel deep semantic analysis approach.
INDECT recently upgraded one of the system modules, i.e., a tool for pattern based Information retrieval. Members of the INDECT consortium took also effort to make improvements in the enhanced search tool – a module of the system.
Recently the license for the prototype has been granted by the AGH University of Science and Technology to the Polish General Headquarters of Police as a result of the successful execution of the project.
