In an organization, there exist the possibility of users utilizing prohibited applications or resources. Preventing such activity deemed inappropriate therefore paramount in ensuring effective network administration. This research employed a simulated experimental network topology to develop a utility for terminating the connection of host engaged in activity deemed inimical to network performance. The utility automates network traffic capture; analyses captured traffic to identify prohibited connections (e.g. Peer-to-Peer traffic) and injects TCP reset packets to terminate connections. The research established that instantaneous termination of undesirable connections is effective; even though it could not always achievable due to packet delays, network congestion, false positives and non-identification of some application traffic.
