FAIRMONT, W.Va., Nov. 1, 2011 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Backbone Security is pleased to announce the release of Version 3.11 of the Steganography Application Fingerprint Database (SAFDB) which now contains 1,000 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 U.S. 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 or 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, 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 and StegAlyzerRTS that contains SAFDB v3.11 by logging into their account on the SARC Customer Portal at http://www.sarc-wv.com/customer_portal/ .
