Backbone Security Expands World's Largest Digital Steganography Database

Fairmont, WV, Feb 28, 2013 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) -- Backbone Security, the global leader in advanced digital steganography detection and hidden information extraction tools, is pleased to announce the release of the latest version of their Steganography Application Fingerprint Database (SAFDB) which now contains over 1,150 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 US 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 and 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 that searches for steganography applications on suspect media and forensic images of suspect media, the Steganography Analyzer Field Scanner (StegAlyzerFS), a rapid field triage toolthat detects the presence or use of steganography on suspect comptuer systems, 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, StegAlyzerFS, and StegAlyzerRTS that contains SAFDB v3.16 by logging into their account on the SARC Customer Portal at http://www.sarc-wv.com/customer_portal.

Reflections from an Interop Veteran and Alum

When I returned to the Fiber Mountain™ offices in Connecticut after exhibiting at Interop Las Vegas 2015, I couldn’t help but think about how much the event has evolved through the years. I have been attending this seminal IT and networking conference since its inception in 1986 when it was called the TCP/IP Vendor Workshop, focused on interoperability of various TCP/IP program stacks.

What Fiber Mountain's Interop Recognition Means for Our Industry

When Fiber Mountain™ began its journey with a launch at Interop New York last fall, we certainly believed that we had a solution that would make a significant impact in the data center space.

What On-Board Optics Means for Density and Flexibility

This past week I read an article in Lightwave Magazine and another in Network World about the formation of the Consortium for On-board Optics (COBO), a group that seeks to create specifications and increase the faceplate density of data center switches and adapters.

Scaling Hyperscale in an Age of Exponential Growth and Virtualization

Over the past several years server, network, storage and application virtualization has revolutionized the way hyperscale data centers are built by consolidating workloads. The trend has simplified network architecture significantly and resulted in huge cost savings as well.
