apache-cc is an Apache patch that introduces a covert channel
(see e.g. Wikipedia)
into the data transmission between the httpd server and selected clients.
It was developed as a proof-of-concept tool as part of a diploma thesis
in computer science.
The rest of this page is currently available in German only. Sorry.
