Title: Forensic Analysis of Steganography Programs on Android
Abstract: The processing power of smartphones has promoted mobile applications of algorithms that were previously considered too computationally intensive, such as steganography. Steganography apps allow covert communication on a mobile phone using digital photographs on the phone. Digital forensic image analysis of photographs and other files aims to detect such covert activity. In this research, we ask the questions: how effectively can a steganography app be discovered? How can this knowledge help improve detection of stego images and other steg-related files?
