  1. Backup Infrastructure Development and Implementation Plan
  2.  
  3.  
  4.  
  5. The creation of this Infrastructure in whole I believe would best be broken down
  6. much like The Plan itself,into Phases. In this way we are allowed to observe it
  7. as it is built which will give us the documentation needed to reverse engineer for
  8. security and the such.
  9.  
  10.  
  11. Example:
  12.  
  13. Phase 1 -- Introductory and remedial research begins. Educate ourselves on the basics
  14. of the network structure we are working with. Advanced study begins.
  15.  
  16. Phase 2 -- In this Phase, we begin building. Framework for standalone client. Network
  17. Configuration. And test for any vulnerabilities.
  18.  
  19. Phase 3 -- We launch the network based upon all test documentation, meaning there may
  20. be certain deviations we would have to make for the network to operate
  21. correctly.
  22.  
  23.  
  24. Now as this is a bare bones summary just to get you acquainted, I will break down
  25. even further the Phases, as well as provide documentation and any relevant information to further
  26. aid in your research.
  27.  
  28.  
  29. Phase 1 -- Get acquainted!

  32. WinMX, it is a P2P network that at one time used to be very popular, give or take a little, about 800
  33. channels on the network at any given time with numbers of users per channel ranging from 60 - 120.
  34. Since then, it has become rather barren, consisting of maybe 30 - 60 channels at any given time. With
  35. an average of 6 - 20 users per channel. What happened?? Well, during 2005 - 2006 (?) the FBI and RIAA
  36. starting cracking down on these Peer to Peer networks due to Copyright laws and such on files that
  37. were being shared. WinMX was caught in the crossfire and now is off the grid so to speak.
  38.  
  39. By now I hope you can see where I'm going with this. But I did forget to mention one thing, it can all
  40. be hosted locally. So, we're mobile, we can share easily, and we have a channel to speak through.
  41. We can centralize it on a 24/7 host and be able to switch it over to another local machine ANYWHERE if
  42. need be in the event the main host is taken offline or just needs to be repaired. We never have to completely
  43. be offline for any extended amount of time. Imagine what can be achieved through that, maybe even be able
  44. to use it on our forum.

  63. But, there are some cons...

  70.  
  71. **However, even with the cons, the servers that are most affected are WCS which are locally driven servers.
  72. What the 'attacks' on winMX do is make the channel list unable to load. Which at least until a new patch
  73. is released, may give us a nice window of time to explore and get hands on, without allowing our
  74. presence to be known.( kinda sounded bad lol.u get it ) The channel list is unable to load but the channel is still there.
  75. we could even test a brand new patch.**
  76.  
  77.  
  78.  
  79. So, are you ready to move on and see what we could possibly do to improve upon the situation? And utilize
  80. this in a whole new way?
  81.  
  82.  
  83.  
  84. Phase 2 -- Development Period
  85.  
  86.  
  87. During Phase 1 we explored the core dynamics of and educated ourselves on winMX. Now in Phase 2 we begin
  88. the Development Period. For this we need some decent programmers, graphics, logistics, etc. Pretty much anyone
  89. in Dev that has a hand to lend.
  90.  
  91. Now, Im not going to go too in depth just yet for Phase 2 and Phase 3 because simply put, ideas and the plan
  92. laid out is always subject to change as we develop new ideas that replace old ones. However, at this point, as much
  93. research as possible is needed:

  96. P2P Development --

  108. WinMX Support --
  109.  
  110.  
  111. Forum section regarding WinMX Chat Servers: http://forum.winmxworld.com/index.php/board,5.0.html
  112. Forum section regarding WinMX Chat Clients: http://forum.winmxworld.com/index.php/board,6.0.html
  113. Forum section regarding WinMX Bots: http://forum.winmxworld.com/index.php/board,7.0.html
  114.  
  115. Now, after reading through just these few links, we begin to see that there is in fact a diamond in the rough so to speak.
  116. Imagine if we had control of the TDL-4 botnet or could at least recreate it.But that comes in time, for now the main
  117. focus should be placed on doing one of two things: either release a new WinMX patch, which would satisfy their community as well
  118. and give us insight OR we begin building our own Network entirely. What should we do? Any Ideas?
  119.  
  120. We then move on to testing for security vulnerabilities. And play around with it until it is ready to be released.
  121.  
  122.  
  123. Phase 3 -- Launch
  124.  
  125.  
  126. So here we are, we have gathered research and worked as an organized Dev team to build something that our entire community
  127. may benefit from in a large way. If it passes all testing and the such, we then devise when would be best to launch what we have
  128. built.
  129.  
  130.  
  131.  
  132. So in conclusion, I think it would be awesome for the Dev team to take on this project. Plus it will clear up alot of issues I
  133. have seen posted in different threads on the forum regarding, IRC, Chatbox, Anonymity while communicating etc...
  134. If you'd be interested in helping with this project, don't be shy! And thank you all again, for excepting me to this Team
  135. and may we have many more amazing projects in the future!
