Development of an efficient steganalysis framework for uncovering hidden data in digital media.

Project description

A state-of-art steganalysis for effectively uncovering threats

Steganalysis is a technique long used to identify hidden messages with the use of steganography. Recently, steganography has been increasingly employed and developed by criminals and terrorists who use it to place hidden, innocent-looking messages. Therefore, to investigate dangerous hidden information, today, law enforcement agencies (LEAs) cannot rely anymore on outdated tools. With this in mind, the EU-funded UNCOVER project aims to design, create and evaluate the most advanced solutions for specific LEA needs: fastest, flexible and widely adaptable multiple-case digital tools integrated into a user-friendly platform and the regular criminal investigation cycles. It will also guarantee the best operational qualities with privacy protection and chain-of-custody needs.
