Michael Raggo: Data Hiding and Steganography SkyDogCon 2013 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Michael Raggo: Data Hiding and Steganography
SkyDogCon 2013

If the newswire is any indication, corporate espionage, covert communications, and evidence concealment continue to plague corporations, investigators, and the military. Use of data hiding techniques by Russian Spies for covert communications, Operation Shady RAT and Alureon corporate espionage trojans, and German evidence of steganography used by Al Qaeda, are the latest in a series of incidents involving data hiding.

This presentation will highlight some of the latest research of the 21st century involving data hiding techniques over the network and with data-at-rest. The highlights will demonstrate new techniques for hiding data on mobile devices, operating systems, VOIP, virtual images, social networks, and other dominating technologies in today's world.

Having demonstrated the latest data hiding techniques, detailed analytical methods for discovering hidden data, as well as jamming methods for disrupting data hiding operations will be outlined. We will then consider emerging technologies and attack methods, including cloud considerations, parallel processing attack methods, privacy protection, and derivative data hiding and detection theories.
