FAIRMONT, W.Va. /Publishers Newswire/ — Backbone Security, the global leader in advanced digital steganalysis tools, in conjunction with ADF Solutions, the global leader of forensic triage tools, is pleased to announce the availability of an updated Steganography SearchPak for use with ADF’s revolutionary digital forensic triage tools currently deployed at law enforcement agencies, government organizations, and commercial corporations worldwide.
The Steganography SearchPak was created from hash values extracted from the latest version of the Steganography Application Fingerprint Database (SAFDB) created and maintained in Backbone’s Steganography Analysis and Research Center (SARC). SAFDB is the world’s largest commercially available hash set exclusive to steganography applications. Digital forensic examiners around the world are using hash values from SAFDB to detect the presence of steganography applications on seized media.
First responders and digital forensics lab examiners can use the Steganography SearchPak with Triage-ID(TM) and Triage-Lab(TM) to quickly detect any files associated with 768 steganography applications. The tools are designed to be used by both technical and non technical users and are widely deployed for both field and lab investigations.
Triage-ID(TM) is a field tool for first responders to perform automated on-site analysis of suspect computers, with a bootable CD-ROM and USB drive. Triage-Lab(TM) is a Windows based tool that performs automated analysis of drive images, network drives, stand alone suspect computers, DVD’s, CD’s, and other digital media.
Detecting the presence of steganography applications is a strong indication the application may have been used to conceal digital evidence. When files associated with steganography applications are detected, users have the option of contacting Backbone for further assistance with finding and extracting the hidden evidence using advanced steganalysis tools developed in the SARC.
Contact ADF Solutions at firstname.lastname@example.org or the SARC at email@example.com for information about obtaining the Steganography SearchPak.
