  30. 30. Project Arachnid SEP 2018
  31. 31. What is Project Arachnid? • Platform to reduce public availability of CSAM • Victim focused • Finds CSAM based on PhotoDNA and human intel • Sends takedown notices to providers
  32. 32. Where do hashes (fingerprints) come from? • NCMEC • RCMP • City/regional police services in Canada • Interpol (ICSE) • Cybertip.ca hashes (public reporting) • 8 million + currently
  33. 33. Where does Project Arachnid find CSAM? • Open websites – links from URLs with known CSAM • Forums/chatrooms • Tor hidden services • Industry proactive submissions
  34. 34. How does Arachnid flag CSAM for review?
  35. 35. Scraping Tor Hidden Services (Dark Web) • Larger archives typically encrypted / split / stored on the open web • Arachnid has index of known passwords as posted in forum • Arachnid will automatically decrypt and expand archive for analyst assessment • Encrypted archives can evade proactive ESP efforts
  36. 36. Arachnid Industry API • Focus on trained analyst assessment vs industry • Image scanning • Hash matching / download • URLs – blocking / intelligence • 3 Tiers • Pre-upload blocking (hash filtering) • Post-upload blocking (notices) • Content Filtering (URL blocking) • Media that violates TOS (non-csam)
  37. 37. Arachnid Dashboard…
  38. 38. How is content removed?
  39. 39. Notices – Age verified (Post pubescent) • Verification directly with LEA • Associating media • High compliance rate on notices sent to providers • High volume of content in “plain view” on adult pornography sites • difficulty in hotline assessment • Works well for self / peer produced material
  40. 40. Overall Notice / Takedown success rate • Top 25% Under 2hrs • Top 50% Under 12hrs • Bottom 10% ~ 30days
  41. 41. Notice success rate – Good Examples • Finding correct abuse@ contact is key – CSAM specific • Best providers white list Arachnid for auto- action • Reporting collateral user content
  42. 42. Notice success rate – Room for Improvement…
  43. 43. Question… When do the number of *UNIQUE* images/videos detected per month start going down?
  44. 44. Unique Images / month (Since Jan 2017)
  45. 45. How do Hotlines Participate? • Agreement / Arachnid Orb • Assess media – not urls • Classify irrespective of geographic location • Notices sent in North America • Reports sent to ICCAM or ESP / Both • Branded notices
  46. 46. Participating Hotline Benefits • Removes geographic based assessment shortcomings • Media intelligence for Analysts: • Series knowledge • Victim identified? - Analyst wellness • Use of resultant data – Sum of our parts • URLs / Hashes • Support resource for survivors in tipline country • Shared platform for attacking Darkweb advertised material
  47. 47. How does Arachnid help LEA? •Submission of hash values into Arachnid where distribution is not known • Project Iceberg • RCMP video example •Discovery of media that has not been previously seen by LEA •Pulling hash values from Arachnid API relating to victim impact statements •API for Law enforcement (in development)
  48. 48. Where do we go from here? • Focus on rights of child victims vs strict criminal code def’s • Collaborative classification – international approach • More analysts reviewing material, focusing in the same direction • Increased industry involvement in use of Arachnid API • Branding notices in the native language of the destination country/company
