Paper: Steganography for the Computer Forensics Examiner

Saturday, September 04, 2004 (16:55:40)
"An Overview of Steganography for the Computer Forensics Examiner" by Gary C. Kessler

Abstract

Steganography is the art of covered or hidden writing. The purpose of steganography is covert communication-to hide the existence of a message from a third party. This paper is intended as a high-level technical introduction to steganography for those unfamiliar with the field. It is directed at forensic computer examiners who need a practical understanding of steganography without delving into the mathematics, although references are provided to some of the ongoing research for the person who needs or wants additional detail. Although this paper provides a historical context for steganography, the emphasis is on digital applications, focusing on hiding information in online image or audio files. Examples of software tools that employ steganography to hide data inside of other files as well as software to detect such hidden files will also be presented.

Ashcroft wins Internet wiretap system

Saturday, September 04, 2004 (14:28:56)

Last March, the Department of Justice, the FBI and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration jointly petitioned the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for a ruling that cable modem companies and other broadband providers are also covered by the law.

Last Call for DIGEV 2004 Web Conference Registrations

Monday, August 30, 2004 (07:53:32)
Last chance to register for DIGEV 2004, the 1st International Digital Evidence Web Conference. The one-day event takes place online on the 2nd of September (this Thursday), but even if you can't make the date all presentations will be archived for future viewing.

They've secured a world-leading speaker line-up...I guess it's easier to secure such a distinguished line-up when you're asking the speakers to only take 60 minutes out of their schedule, not 5 days!!!
