Statefull Mediation

A Mediation System which tracks the state of a connection flows between one or more senders and a receiver on the networks through discreet knowledge of the protocol. Stateful designs can employe deep packet inspection techniques to inspect each packet in the flows and determine which phase of transmission in which they are involved. These systems are very flexible but also very difficult to deploy and manage because of the deep knowledge they require in understanding flow behaviors and thus maintaining the "state" in each phase of the connection. In addition, the techniques may be thwarted by encryption technologies and other "stealth" techniques which disguise the nature of the protocol or transmission.
