The LANGuardian has a set of signatures for detecting Skype.

The following signatures detect the initial login http sign up process

Policy :: Skype :: VOIP Checking Version (Startup) Policy :: Skype :: VOIP Reporting Install Policy :: Skype :: User-Agent detected Policy :: Skype :: Client Successful Install Policy :: Skype :: Client Setup Get Newest Version Attempt Policy :: Skype :: Client Start Up Get Latest Version Attempt

The following signatures detect the Skype protocol

Policy :: Skype :: Client Login Policy :: Skype :: Client Login Startup

Also its worth tracking systems that are generating lots of udp connections, the following link will do this for you.
