Howto Record MSN Messenger conversation ?

Postby zaib » Mon Mar 31, 2008 11:33 am

Salam,

Is there any way we can record users MSN conversation (just for specific security need) which is going through our linux server for all hosts or some particular hosts?

Question is What is your server?

Is that simply working as proxy?
and/or
Is that working as router too?
and/or
NATing all internet traffic?

let me know the answers so that I can propose the right solution

I have FC8 working in BRIDGE mode.

USERS Traffic ===> eht0 > LINUX BRIDGE > eth1 ====> ISASERVER

I am filtering users ip/mac/ports and other bandwidth shaping via bridge.

I also have another server working on FC8 working as a proxy/dns/dhcp for some users.

Plz guide me on howto record conversation for all or some hosts.

(I need ro record conversation for some secuirty related issue.)

Dear Jahanzeb,

Does all your user will be notified that you will monitoring the Instant Messages conversation?

You know Jahanzeb writing a solution is 2 mins Job but as a security consultant & Licenced Penetration tester my job is to make sure I am NOT knowingly encouraging to violates people privacy.

I am writing a solution here which is not that Interactive but will solve the purpose.

You can do the tcp dump in your FC machine of your internet traffic of specific IP and/or Port and make a capture file, then you can use software like Shadow IM Sniffer to import the capture file and it will re-generate the IM traffic so it can be readable.

Let me again tell you there are more robust / automated / solutions that I can proposed here BUT I think this will solve the purpose AND / OR I am not 100% sure that this is really for SECURITY REASON.

Thanks
