SAFDB is the world’s largest commercially available hash set exclusive to digital steganography applications.
FAIRMONT, WV (PRWEB) September 09, 2013
Backbone Security, the global leader in advanced digital steganography detection and hidden information extraction tools, is pleased to announce the release of the latest version of their Steganography Application Fingerprint Database (SAFDB), which now contains over 1,200 steganography applications.
Developed in Backbone’s Steganography Analysis and Research Center (SARC), SAFDB is the world’s largest commercially available hash set exclusive to digital steganography applications.
The database is widely used by US and international government and law enforcement agencies, the intelligence community, and private sector digital forensic examiners and network security professionals to detect digital steganography applications on seized digital media and within inbound and outbound network traffic streams.
Discovery of a steganography application during a digital forensics examination is a strong indication the application has been, or will be, used to conceal evidence of criminal activity. Detecting a steganography application in the inbound network traffic stream is a strong indication an insider will use the application to steal sensitive information.
SAFDB is an integral part of the Steganography Analyzer Artifact Scanner (StegAlyzerAS), a digital forensics application that searches for steganography applications on suspect media and forensic images of suspect media, the Steganography Analyzer Field Scanner (StegAlyzerFS), a rapid field triage tool that detects the presence or use of steganography on suspect computer systems, and the Steganography Analyzer Real-Time Scanner (StegAlyzerRTS), a network security appliance that detects the presence or use of steganography in the inbound and outbound network traffic stream in real-time.
Existing customers may download an updated version of StegAlyzerAS, StegAlyzerFS, and StegAlyzerRTS that contains SAFDB v3.18 by logging into their account on the SARC Customer Portal at http://www.sarc-wv.com/customer_portal.
