We are looking for an experienced contractor who would be able to develop a turnkey computer activity surveillance application for MacOS X (10.2 to 10.5). The software will be running in the background and is completely invisible. The software will record screen snapshots, keystrokes, web browser activity (websites visited), search engine activity, e-mail activity, chat activity, application activity, file access, user activity. A sophisticated GUI (hereafter called "Manager") will guarantee the convenient administration and management of the log files (detail-rich design document (graphics) of the future GUI will be provided to the winning bidder. Graphics and toolbar / application icons will be provided as well, unless you have an in-house designer capable of satisfying our needs.
To access the (usually invisible) Manager application, the user will be required to press a key-combination and authenticate himself with a password.
Besides monitoring the users on a given computer, the software will have a network mode, allowing the user to monitor any computer on a local network that has the surveillance software installed. A third mode will allow the user to monitor any selected computer across the Internet, provided that the surveillance software is installed on that machine and that the IP address is known (how to make the IP known to the administrating computer? This will require your creativity).
Furthermore, you shall include an easy-to-use installation wizard that will guide the user through the setup of the software. This includes an Installer (not only for installing on the local machine, but also for distributing to and installing on other machines on a given local network), as well as an Uninstaller.
You shall also develop a serial number generator and implement a corresponding registration system as counterpart into the main application.
You, the developer, shall provide a ready-to-use stand-alone software and a well-documented source code including all related files.
All deliverables must be delivered within 40 days after acceptance of your project unless agreed otherwise. Weekly status reports are mandatory.
The final product, source code, and all other related files will become our exclusive intellectual property upon final payment.
You agree to provide free support for 60 days after delivering the final product (you will fix any bug (software malfunctions, system errors or problems with third-party applications related to the use of the product) that may appear within the aforementioned period.
