A R T I C L E:

West Virginia's Backbone Security is pleased to announce the results of performance testing on the 1Gbps version of Backbone's Steganography Analyzer Real-Time Scanner (StegAlyzerRTS) appliance conducted by a faculty-led team from Rochester Institute of Technology's Kate Gleason College of Engineering.

The testing was designed and conducted to determine the ability of StegAlyzerRTS to detect artifacts and/or signatures of steganography applications within network traffic at a fixed line rate of 1Gbps and varying levels of activity measured as the number of concurrent sessions per second.

Artifacts are files associated with the steganography applications. Detecting an artifact of a steganography application would be an indication the trusted insider who downloaded the application is planning to use it for nefarious purposes such as stealing sensitive information.

Signatures of steganography applications are specific byte patterns left in a carrier file as a byproduct of embedding information in, or appending information to the carrier file. Detecting a signature of a steganography application is an indication the trusted insider used the application to hide sensitive information.

Artifacts would be detected in inbound network traffic with signatures detected in outbound network traffic.

For a wide variety of test conditions, including those with a sustained line rate of 1Gbps and a network load of 8,000 concurrent sessions per second, the StegAlyzerRTS consistently detected 100% of the artifacts presented to it.

"Based on this testing by RIT, we believe our enterprise class customers can be assured our one-of-a-kind real-time steganography detection appliance will handle the traffic on their gigabit networks," said Bart Guerreri, Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Backbone Security.

SARC’s Digital Steganography Database Now Contains 960 Applications

Author: Backbone Security
Dateline: Fairmont, West Virginia (FAIRMONT, W.Va.)  | Mon, 01 Aug 2011

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “Backbone Security is pleased to announce the release of Version 3.10 of the Steganography Application Fingerprint Database (SAFDB) which now contains 960 steganography applications.”



A R T I C L E:

Backbone Security is pleased to announce the release of Version 3.10 of the Steganography Application Fingerprint Database (SAFDB) which now contains 960 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 or 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, 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 and StegAlyzerRTS that contains SAFDB v3.10 by logging into their account on the SARC Customer Portal at http://www.sarc-wv.com/customer_portal .

For additional information about Backbone's steganalysis tools, please visit the SARC web site or send email to sarc@backbonesecurity.com.

Backbone Announces High Speed Real-Time Steganography Detection System

Author: Backbone Security
Dateline: Fairmont, West Virginia (FAIRMONT, W.Va.)  | Mon, 20 Dec 2010

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “Backbone Security is pleased to announce the availability of a 1Gbps version of their network security appliance for detecting insider use of digital steganography to steal sensitive information.”



A R T I C L E:

Backbone Security is pleased to announce the availability of a 1Gbps version of their network security appliance for detecting insider use of digital steganography to steal sensitive information.

The Steganography Analyzer Real-time Scanner, StegAlyzerRTS, developed in Backbone's Steganography Analysis and Research Center (SARC) is the only commercially available real-time steganography detection system in the world. The latest generation of StegAlyzerRTS is capable of operating on networks with throughput of 1Gbps.

Digital steganography is the Internet era version of an information hiding technique that dates back to the days of Ancient Greece. Using digital steganography, a file can be embedded within, or appended to, another file in such a way that it cannot be seen or heard. Unlike cryptography, which translates information into an unintelligible sequence of letters and numbers, steganography conceals the very existence of the information.

One of the many consequences of the economic downturn is that trusted insiders have become more aware of the value of the information they work with on a day-to-day basis than ever before. In some respects, information has become more valuable than money because money, once spent, is gone but information can be sold and resold many times on the burgeoning black market for nearly any type of information.

Insider theft of sensitive information such as Personally Identifiable Information (PII), Protected Health Information (PHI), and intellectual property is increasing at an alarming pace. Insiders can easily find and use any of more than 1,000 steganography applications available as free ware or shareware on web sites across the Internet to steal information.

The current generation of network security appliances such as firewalls, intrusion detection systems, intrusion prevention systems, and data loss prevention systems, with the exception of the Fidelis Extrusion Prevention System®, Fidelis XPS™, do not detect insider use of steganography. The Fidelis XPS system can detect insiders downloading steganography applications through the use of the Steganography Detection Policy created by Backbone exclusively for Fidelis' customers.

StegAlyzerRTS can detect insiders downloading any of the 875 digital steganography applications currently in the SARC's archives. Detecting this type of insider activity is an early warning indicator the insider is planning to steal sensitive information. The system can also detect insiders using selected steganography applications through a unique signature-based detection model.

"Any company with significant amounts of sensitive information or intellectual property on their network must be concerned about the threat from insider use of steganography to steal that information," according to Bart Guerreri, Chairman and CEO of Backbone Security. "Our one-of-a-kind turnkey system counters that threat. There's nothing else out there that can do what our system can do in terms of real-time steganography detection and hidden information extraction."

Backbone Security and our worldwide network of business partners are now taking orders.

Backbone’s Digital Steganography Database Exceeds 875 Applications

Author: Backbone Security
Dateline: Fairmont, West Virginia (FAIRMONT, W.Va.)  | Mon, 01 Nov 2010

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “Backbone Security is pleased to announce the release of Version 3.7 of the Steganography Application Fingerprint Database which now contains more than 875 steganography applications. Developed in Backbone's Steganography Analysis and Research Center, SAFDB is the world's largest commercially available hash set exclusive to digital steganography applications.”



A R T I C L E:

Backbone Security is pleased to announce the release of Version 3.7 of the Steganography Application Fingerprint Database (SAFDB) which now contains more than 875 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 U.S. 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 or within inbound or 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, and the Steganography Analyzer Real-Time Scanner (StegAlyzerRTS), a network security appliance that detects the presence or use of steganography in real-time in the inbound and outbound network traffic stream.

Existing customers may download updated versions of StegAlyzerAS and StegAlyzerRTS that contains SAFDB v3.7 by logging into their account on the SARC Web site.

Backbone Security Announces Steganography Detection Policy for Fidelis XPS Customers

Author: Backbone Security
Dateline: Fairmont, West Virginia (FAIRMONT, W.Va.)  | Fri, 27 Aug 2010

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “FAIRMONT, W.Va. -- Backbone Security, the global leader in digital steganography detection tools, is pleased to announce availability of a Steganography Detection Policy (SDP) for enterprises protected by Fidelis Security Systems' flagship session-level network security solution, Fidelis XPS.”



A R T I C L E:

Backbone Security, the global leader in digital steganography detection tools, is pleased to announce availability of a Steganography Detection Policy (SDP) for enterprises protected by Fidelis Security Systems' flagship session-level network security solution, Fidelis XPS(TM). The SDP gives Fidelis XPS' customers the capability to detect insiders downloading digital steganography applications on their networks.

Steganography is a method of concealing the existence of data by hiding it within, or appending it to, another file. Unlike encrypting data the way cryptography does, steganography hides the very existence of the data in such a way that it is undetectable under traditional traffic-pattern analysis. Steganography is most often used for malicious purposes such as stealing information or concealing criminal or terrorist activity.

The SDP is based on hash values of file artifacts ("fingerprints") associated with over 850 steganography applications in the Steganography Application Fingerprint Database (SAFDB) developed in Backbone's Steganography Analysis and Research Center. SAFDB is the world's largest commercially available hash set exclusive to digital steganography applications and can be used to determine whether files entering or leaving an enterprise network can be associated with a particular digital steganography application or other data-hiding application.

"With this policy, Fidelis XPS customers can counter the growing threat from insider use of steganography to steal sensitive information such as PHI, PII, or other sensitive information including intellectual property," said Jim Wingate, Vice President of Backbone and Director of the SARC.

The SDP is available on a monthly or annual subscription basis. Customers can import the policy directly into Fidelis XPS' CommandPost(TM) management console, and then distribute the policy to all, or selected, Fidelis XPS sensors.

For additional information, please visit http://www.sarc-wv.com/products/fidelis.aspx . For SDP subscription pricing, please contact the SARC at 877.560.SARC (877.560.7272) or email sarc@backbonesecurity.com .
