Dennis Kuntz Mining Sensitive Information From Images Using Command-Line OCR Derbycon 2011 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Dennis Kuntz Mining Sensitive Information From Images Using Command-Line OCR
Derbycon 2011

I will discuss the potential for using command-line OCR tools to mine documents that might otherwise be overlooked, especially in large numbers such as scans and faxes. These documents are often overlooked because there are no searchable strings (i.e. the content is actually an image). This is a work in progress in its early stages, but I will cover some tools and some practical use of those tools within offensive scenarios (using a real world example). I will also discuss possible uses from a defensive position as well as what avenues of this approach Id like to explore next.
