Abstract
This thesis describes how software for automated bidding on for example auction sites could function. The thesis is divided into three parts. The elements are composed of:
• Collecting bid data from the website that the auction is held on and pass the raw data to the main application for further processing.
• A graphical presentation of the auction data is shown divided into individual auctions in the proprietary interface after having first processed the data that was collected from the website.
• Techniques that can help protect against automated bidding is also discussed and the result is not that a single solution works best, but the combination out of several techniques that make it much harder for an attacker to succeed in... (More)

• A graphical presentation of the auction data is shown divided into individual auctions in the proprietary interface after having first processed the data that was collected from the website.
• Techniques that can help protect against automated bidding is also discussed and the result is not that a single solution works best, but the combination out of several techniques that make it much harder for an attacker to succeed in producing a working software for automated bidding.
The result of the application was as expected, a functioning robot that makes bidding a very simple task, showing how the bidding takes place in real time. Countermeasures to prevent this type of application was also designed and worked well against the proprietary application. When there are so many different ways to evade the imposed security settings, it is difficult, if not impossible, to develop a universal solution that always works. (Less)
