by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children,
has developed a new product - Predator
Guard - that scans all text on the computer screen,
in any software program (Microsoft Word, Outlook Express,
or any IM application), "notices" when that text
could be threatening to the user's well-being, and ends the
IM or chat session if the user tells it to. The software also
captures and logs "violations" - messages that contain
language a sexual predator would use - for use as evidence
by law enforcement. The product that allows it to do these
things: 1) a "library" or database of about 250
terms and phrases typically used by sexual predators or pedophiles
(e.g., "Are you home alone?") when they're trying
to engage chatroom participants and 2) technology that monitors,
detects, and logs that text, checking it against the database.
Soft worked with computer-crime experts in police departments
for about two years to develop its database of pedophile language.
This company apparently also went through thousands of chat
logs that had been used as evidence in successful prosecutions
of sex offenders, looking for patterns in how the offenders
had gained victims' confidence. (Note: This product
