A REVIEW OF FEATURES AND PERFORMANCE OF IRC (AIM & MESSENGER) AND GROUP SUPPORT SYSTEM

Sukhpreet Kaur , Er. Harpreet Kaur

Abstract


IRC (Internet Relay Chat) is a protocol used by people to communicate or deliver messages through networks. IRC offers services to users for real-time text messages through chat groups defined as virtual communities including people with same interests and hobbies. The communication provided by IRC is known as ‘Computer-Mediated Communication’ where people gathered at one place for conversations. IRC protocol enables its users or clients to connect to IRC servers providing areal-time interface for communicating with people at remote locations throughout the world. However, communication through IRC channels is not secure sometimes. Data security issue could occur while communicating using IRC protocol. Hence, data security is a major concern which needs to be considered to secure the information over IRC channels for hackers. This research focuses on the basic detail of IRC protocol, its architecture, environment, and features. The research is more focused on IRC system to improve its performance by implementing IRC application using new methodology and techniques.
