Researchers Pioneer Digital Fingerprint Forensics To Nab Cyber Thieves
Source: SCMagazine - Posted by Eric Lubow   
Security Projects Researchers have demonstrated a new forensics technology designed to help catch cyber thieves and digital pirates. The digital fingerprinting technology, which was developed by academics at the University of Maryland's A. James Clark School of Engineering, is designed to help protect digital assets and identify national security leak sources. <> The Clark School's Min Wu, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering (ECE) and the Institute for Advanced Computer Studies, and K.J. Ray Liu, professor in ECE and the Institute for Systems Research, are developing the new "cyber forensics" to not only protect digital resources, but also trace those who attempt to steal or misuse them. The technologies aim to counter cyber criminals' use of sophisticated "collusion attacks", which occur when multiple users conspire to electronically steal and distribute copyrighted or classified material, diluting or erasing the original digital ID, or fingerprint, from the stolen multimedia content to avoid detection.
