Hello Everyone,

Some of you may have seen many of my emails on this list and the other
lists, mainly asking about firewalls and filters.

Well, for some time now I have been researching within the realm of filters,
firewalls, IDSs and IPSs for limitations within these areas for my
university thesis. I have to find a limitation within a current computing
area and improve on it. Well it seems every time I come up with a great
idea, I find that someone else has gone an done it or the idea sucks.
Please let me know if this has been tried or if it is a good/bad idea.

Five years ago I wrote my final paper on that same subject, take a
look at it, I hope you find it interesting. The code works reliably,
I implemented a protocol validator for SMTP (without any extensions)
and for POP3, and it's not very hard to add others. It is implemented
in Perl.
