Abstract
We propose to develop a platform-independent Rapid Steganographic Detection Suite (RSDS). The RSDS will be capable of applying a diverse collection of steganalysis detection methods to all relevant files on a PC or other hardware system. The software will have a publicly available API for steganalysis methods and will thus allow new methods to be incorporated by any user who has the RSDS and the necessary programming skills. The RSDS will be able to apply these detection methods to a set of user-specified folders and to user-specified file types. Further, the RSDS can be used to scan incoming email as well as images and other media files that are downloaded from the Internet. The RSDS main driver will be written in Java. It will be able to interface with steganalysis methods that are written in various languages, including Java, C or C++, and MATLAB. As part of our Phase I work, we will implement in the RSDS a change-point detection method of steganalysis developed by our expert collaborator, Professor R. Chandramouli of the Stevens Institute of Technology.
