WetStone announces the release of T.A.P.S.™ (Trait Analytical Profiling Search). This technology was developed under an NIJ funded grant to support state and local law enforcement. WetStone and NIJ have been working on this research for over 2 years. The initial version of T.A.P.S. utilizes a new hashing algorithm developed under the research grant (Fibonacci Hashing or FIB-H1). FIB-H1 is designed to perform rapid scanning for known malicious applications and there derivatives. This method allows us to perform searches for specific objects up to 50 times faster than conventional MD5 hashing methods.
