Deep packet inspection
Deep packet inspection is a form of computer network packet filtering that examines the data part of a thru-passing packet, searching for illegal statements to decide if the packet can pass. This is in contrast to shallow packet inspection (usually called just packet inspection) which just checks the header portion of a packet.
