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.

Human trafficking is happening in plain sight all around us. Have you ever seen something that looks out of place? Does uncertainty stop you from speaking up? Every human trafficking story, no matter how long or short, whether current or historic, is important and relevant. It may be the missing piece of the puzzle, contributing to a larger and more accurate picture of human trafficking, which can then inform efforts to combat it. Technology places the power to prevent into the hand of a person who holds a mobile device. The STOP APP can be downloaded by anyone, anywhere in the world who has access to a smartphone. The app is anonymous, confidential and secure โ€“ it is available in seven languages and allows you to submit suspicious activity quickly by sending text based messages and uploading photos and videos.

STOP THE TRAFFIK and our long-term technology partner, IBM, have created the first ever international data hub to facilitate the sharing of information about human trafficking across all industries and sectors. The Traffik Analysis Hub (TAHub) is a partnership that includes financial institutions, NGOs, law enforcement and government agencies who are all unified by the common goal of sharing data to stop human trafficking. Using advanced cognitive technologies developed by IBM, the TAHub will facilitate the sharing of information quickly and easily and combine multiple data sets in one secure system. IBM has donated a significant grant to make this a reality and will use AI technology to quickly analyse and process volumes of data from a variety of sources; while ensuring its security and integrity.

NCMEC offer the Law Enforcement Services Portal (LESP) which serves as a resource and access to several resources of NCMEC directly from the field. One feature is the Hash Query section, in which law enforcement officers in the field may query hash values from active investigations against the NCMEC system to learn if NCMEC knows the child depicted to be identified, and/or whether that hash value has been seen at NCMEC before. CRIS is the internal image and video file catalog used by NCMEC's Child Victim Identification Program. This system allows analysts to review and tag files in bulk in support of prosecution efforts, notating which files contain children identified through previous law enforcement investigations.ย  In addition, this tool assists the analysts in linking files and cases in support of victim identification efforts.

NCMEC hosts the NGO hash sharing platform, which includes MD5 and SHA1 hash values, as well as pDNA signatures, of images and videos tagged as Child Sexual Abuse Material by NCMEC, Internet Watch Foundation and the Canadian Centre for Child Protection. These hashes and signatures are made available to ESPs and other industry partners for free, for their use in their voluntary initiatives to detect, report and remove CSAM files on their services and platforms. As part of our Survivor Services program, NCMEC provides an exploitative hash sharing list, which includes MD5 and SHA1 hash values, as well as pDNA signatures, of images and videos tagged as "exploitative" by NCMEC. These files, which not illegal under federal guidelines, depict, support, and/or promote the exploitation of victims that are seen in associated CSAM files. These hashes and signatures are made available to ESPs and other industry partners for use in their voluntary initiatives to detect, report and remove files in support of survivors' privacy and protection. NCMEC hosts the Industry Hash Sharing Platform, which includes MD5 and SHA1 hash values, as well as pDNA signatures, of images and videos tagged as Child Sexual Abuse Material, which is shared by industry themselves.

NCMECโ€™s CyberTipline is the nationโ€™s (USAโ€™s) centralized reporting system for the online exploitation of children. The public and electronic service providers can make reports of suspected online enticement of children for sexual acts, child sexual molestation, child sexual abuse material, child sex tourism, child sex trafficking, unsolicited obscene materials sent to a child, misleading domain names, and misleading words or digital images on the internet. Through funding from Facebook, NCMEC offers the Case Management Tool (CMT) for domestic and international law enforcement who receive and investigate CyberTipline reports.ย  The CMT allows users to triage, query, organize and refer CyberTipline reports within this web-based interface. NCMEC's Law Enforcement Agency Web Services (LEAWS) allows law enforcement around the world access to CyberTipline report data.ย  This back-end infrastructure allows report data to be ingested by case management tools to allow quicker access, triage and response. NCMEC's ISP Web Services (ISPWS) allows companies around the world report directly to the CyberTipline. This back-end infrastructure allows for easier and automated reporting by companies around the world taking a stand against child sexual exploitation. While companies based in the US are required by law to report to the CyberTipline, any global company may and is welcome to report to the CyberTipline to better protect children and users on their platforms and services. As part of the CyberTipline response process, NCMEC notifies companies and providers when they are hosting CSAM and no suspect or offender is identified. Our analysts use a specialized interface to send notices daily, calling for these providers to remove the content and it includes a follow-up check to ensure the content has in fact been taken down. In 2021, NCMEC sent over 100,000 notices to companies to remove content from their hosting sites.
