Rather than waiting for Project Arachnid to detect material and send a notice, industry can use Shield by Project Arachnid to quickly detect known CSAM on their service, which will, in turn, speed up its removal. Industry members that do not wish to interact directly with Shield by Project Arachnid can register their service/domain with the Canadian Centre to have any notices sent directly to them instead of being sent to their hosting provider. Other industries, such as filtering providers, can download real-time lists of URLs that are believed to currently contain CSAM for filtering purposes.
Project Arachnid is a platform for reducing the availability of child sexual abuse material (CSAM) which includes crawling the internet for known CSAM using digital fingerprints as well as providing an API for industry members to improve upon and accelerate the detection of this harmful material on their own networks.

eGlyph is a robust-hashing algorithm that can identify previously tagged images,video, and audio. eGlyph extends photoDNA which operates only on images.
EOKM and Web-IQ
HashCheckServer is a tool for hosting providers to prevent the uploading of known child sexual exploitation material. To prevent the uploading of known child sexual exploitation material, hosting parties needed to be part of the solution as they provide one of the gateways to publishing CSAM. Based on this knowledge, EOKM took the initiative to help hosting parties to prevent the uploading of known CSAM and to identify existing material on their servers so that it can be deleted. Following this initiative, EOKM asked Web-IQ to develop software that allows hosting parties to check whether an image appears in the police’s database of known CSAM.
Camera Vision is a machine learning tool that identifies images that contain both nudity and a child.
The Content Safety API sorts through many images and prioritizes the most likely child sexual abuse material (CSAM) content for review. The classifier can target content that has not been previously confined as CSAM.

The uniquely combined and continually updated URL list, from some of the world’s primary sources, makes it an effective protective solution.
Vigil At automatically detects, evaluates and categorizes child sexual abuse imagery. Thu system is capable of determining the severity of the sexual act in the image (Using the legacy UK 1-5 Category SAP Scale or the current UK 3 Categories A-C). The tool is available as part of Qumodo Classify, via a Cloud API or via a stand alone API for tools such as Griffeye Analyze. The tool scales linearly and can categorize millions of images per hour
Law enforcementContent moderators
Qumodo Classify is a software product which dramatically speeds up image categorization for content moderation for law enforcement purposes white reducing the psychological impact on the users, saving both time and money. This tool has been specialty designed around the latest AI technology, as well as 21 core psychology principals to form an effective Human/ AI team. As well as reducing the psychological impact on the user, the tool is designad to prevent human bias from influencing the system and creates the ability for the software to learn new abilities over time, further reducing the time needed to manually classify large amounts of data. When paired with the Vigil AI Classifier (vigil.ai) it becomes a powerful tool in the fight against child sexual exploitation and abuse (CSEA) content.
The programme is developing artificial intelligence classifiers, which are working on automating the detection of CSAM, creating a global standard for labeling, connecting, and organizing the world's data to help identify victims faster.

Safer is a child sexual abuse material (CSAM) detection, review, removal and reporting pipeline. It allows small and medium sized companies to have the same CSAM fighting tools as the largest ones.
WebIQ has developed a serverless CSA detection AI, that scans websites and hashes images, and compares the hash to know CSA images. If there is a match, an automatic Notice of Takedown is sent to the host of the server of the website.
Cease.AI for Law Enforcement helps reduce investigator workloads and reduce mental stress by sorting, flagging and removing non-CSAM, allowing investigators to focus their efforts on new child abuse images. investigators upload case images, run their hash lists to eliminate known material, then let the AI identify, suggest a label, and prioritize images that contain previously uncatalogued CSAM.
Large-scale video identification, which allows searching databases of videos. Videntifier TM Forensic, radically improves the forensic video identification process, by providing law enforcement agencies with a robust, fast and easy-to-use video identification system. Using this ser-vice, a single mouse-click is sufficient to automatically scan an entire storage device and classify all videos.
Qumodo Discover is a search engine for evidence. This technology uses AI to intelligently find connections within digital data at a web scale where users can query the system with an image, and it will find other images containing the same places, people, faces and objects. It has been tested with more than 100 million images and validated in a victim ID environment, with child sexual exploitation and abuse (CSEA). content
S21 Laseri-v is a specialist tool for the mass categorization and analysis of child sexual abuse (CSA) videos. LASERi-v (Videos) contains proprietary workflows and algorithms to perform victim identification and investigation. The application is fully customisable, Project VIC premier certified and used by Police forces across the world for the investigation of child sexual abuse and other major crime types. (S2i LASERi-v (Videos) is available as part of the S2i LASERi suite).

NetClein ProActive works similarly to an anti-virus program but instead of detecting a virus, ProActive detects images and videos that law enforcement agencies have classified as child sexual abuse material.
Project VIC is a community of investigators, victim identification specialists, application developers, scientists and strategic partners dedicated to developing and levering the newest technologies and victim-centric methods of investigation to improve success rate in rescuing victims of child sexual exploitation and trafficking. Proiect VIC has co-created an ecosystem of shared and standardized technologies specifically chosen to combat crimes involving massive amounts of images and video. Data from these respective technologies is processed using the Project VAC Cloud and redistributed back to the greater community working on crimes against children. The following tools are part of the Project VIC ecosystem: Project VIC Hash Cloud Provided by Project VIC International and Hubstream Inc. hosts over 65 million CSAM and non CSAM hashes- Access encryption Provided by Project VIC.

Our International Child Sexual Exploitation (ICSE) image and video database is an intelligence and investigative tool, which allows specialized investigators to share data on cases of child sexual abuse. Using image and video comparison software, investigators are instantly able to make connections between victims, abusers and places. The database avoids duplication of effort and saves precious time by letting investigators know whether a series of images has already been discovered or identified in another country, or whether it has similar features to other images. It also allows specialized investigators from more than 64 countries to exchange information and share data with their colleagues across the world. By analysing the digital, visual and audio content of photographs and videos, victim identification experts can retrieve clues, identify any overlap in cases and combine their efforts to locate victims of child sexual abuse.
