Upon completion of this comprehensive two day course, students will have the tools
and experience needed to detect the presence and use of digital steganography applications
as part of their digital forensic examinations. Students will gain an understanding
of the threat posed by the use of steganography in today's interconnected digital
world. Students will become familiar with various techniques and methods used for
embedding hidden information within carrier files. Students will also gain hands-on
experience using a variety of steganography tools while learning how the tools manipulate
Students will learn about the Analytical Approach to Steganalysis: an approach developed
by the Steganography Analysis and Research Center (SARC) as a result of extensive
research of steganography applications and the techniques they employ to embed hidden
information within carrier files. The premise of the Analytical Approach is to first
determine if a particular steganography application existed on storage media at
one point in time. Next, potential carrier file types are identified and examined
for known signatures of steganography applications. Once steganography signatures
are detected, extraction of the hidden information is possible.
Students will conduct a complete steganography examination from initial suspicion
and analysis to detection and recovery of hidden information. The
Steganography Analyzer Artifact Scanner (StegAlyzerAS) will be used to scan
suspect media for the presence of steganography application artifacts. Students
will also learn how to scan for artifacts in the Microsoft Windows Registry, a feature
exclusive to StegAlyzerAS. The Steganography Analyzer
Signature Scanner (StegAlyzerSS) will be used to identify files containing
signatures of steganography applications. Students will learn how to use Automated
Extraction Algorithms to extract hidden information from carrier files with a simple
“point-click-and-extract” interface, a feature exclusive to StegAlyzerSS.
Steganography Examiner Training consists of six hours of lecture, six hours of practical
laboratory exercises, and a two hour written and practical examination.
All students are provided with all tools and laboratory exercises needed for the
course. All students will receive a reference CD containing copies of the steganography
tools used to hide information as well as all training materials and laboratory
exercises. All students who pass the written and practical examination will receive
a Certified Steganography Examiner certificate.
Certified Steganography Examiner Training is available for a fee of $3,695.00. Training
includes fully licensed copies of StegAlyzerAS and StegAlyzerSS. The license includes
technical support and all product updates for one year from date the course. License
extension agreements available.
