Govt introduces new technology to fight child porn

ONE News 20 March 2012
The Government is introducing ground-breaking photo identification technology in a bid to combat child pornography available online. New Zealand is one of two countries to bring in the photo DNA software that will allow law enforcement agencies to trace the origin of an objectionable photo, even after it has been manipulated or edited. Internal Affairs Minister Amy Adams said the technology will help police to find and prosecute child pornography offenders.  “What this software does is enable those agencies to go through thousands and thousands of images and very quickly identify whether there are new victims involved and what the distribution networks for the material is,” said Adams. The technology is already used by sites like Facebook but the New Zealand Government will be the first law-enforcement organisation to have a direct licence for the software.
