Opaque Logging System v0.1

Submitted by pmak on Thu, 2002-11-28 15:06

This system allows the MUSH owner to log everything that happens on a PennMUSH in a format that cannot be read, but is still useful: Given any message seen on the MUSH, information about who sent the message can be reconstructed. This allows the authenticity of player-provided logs (e.g. from harassment complaints) to be verified, as well as spoofers to be caught even when no one was set NOSPOOF, without violating the privacy of your players.

This is new, relatively untested software, and you will probably have a hard time installing it unless you know a bit of C and know how to work with MySQL.
