  Skype -- Login over TCP

Category: IM      

Application: Skype      

Skype was founded to develop the first P2P telephony network. However, the client provides functionality that may be against network policy. The Skype client is an application providing encrypted connectivity with other Skype users to make VoIP calls, exchange files, and chat over IM.

This SonicWALL signature can be used in combination with the other Skype signatures (sid 2, 2800, 2867, and 2878) and Encryped Key Exchange (sid 5) to detect and prevent login to the Skype network.
