Automatic detection of Steganographic content

James P Taylor

Supervised by Michael Daley, Moderated by Irena Spasic

I propose the design of a system that will automatically process a directory of recovered files and scan each one for known Steganographic techniques. If such techniques are found, it will reverse them and reveal hidden content automatically (or at the very least, flag them for possible Steganographic content) I would also attempt to make the system extensible, allowing new techniques to be added to a library of existing techniques as they are discovered. This would make sure that during a forensic investigation the system stays current and no seemingly innocuous files containing crucial evidence are missed.
