It is emanated that most of the internet traffic today is produced by peer-to-peer protocols. The file sharing network Napster was the first popular representative of this kind of protocols. It was developed to share own files with other people around the world. However it was used to download copyrighted material such as music or movies. The concerned industries proceeded against the use of Napster with success. Therefore the operators of Napster had to shutdown their server. This caused the breakdown of the whole network. But other peer-to-peer protocols have been established. Developers invented new features so that the use of these protocols can be disguised. Many of the current detection techniques like deep packet inspection or port detection can't recognize the use of them. Therefore another technique to detect the use of peer-to-peer protocols will be discussed in this thesis. It is based on the recognition of specific behavior in their connections. A former thesis already created nine criteria to detect peer-to-peer protocols due to their connection behavior. This thesis can be seen as a continuation of it. It evaluates these criteria and shows an implementation as a module for the Vermont project which uses them. This module will be compared to the intrusion detection and prevention system Snort. So it can be determined if it is able to use this module for peer-to-peer detection.
