Unified Method to Block Pornographic Images in Websites

Authors: Sakthi Priya Balaji R., Vijayendar G.


This paper proposes a technique to block adult images displayed in websites. The filter is designed so as to perform even in exceptional cases such as, where face detection is not possible or improper face visibility. This is achieved by using an alternative phase to extract the MFC (Most Frequent Color) from the Human Body regions estimated using a biometric of anthropometric distances between fixed rigidly connected body locations. The logical results generated can be protected from overriding by a firewall or intrusion, by encrypting the result in a SSH data packet.

Keywords: Face Detection, characteristics extraction andclassification, Component based shape analysis and classification, open source SSH V2 protocol
