Steganalysis: Detecting Hidden Evidence In Digital Media Files

Kevin Bryan is a PhD candidate in the Computer Science Department at the University of Rhode Island (URI). He has a Bachelors of Science and a Masters of Science in Computer Science degree from URI. Mr. Bryan is the lead researcher on the URI Digital Forensics Center's project on steganography detection - a four year project sponsored by the U.S. Department of Justice to detect if contraband has been hidden in digital files.

Mr. Bryan's earlier work has been transitioned to Wetstone Technology's StegoSuite, the leading commercial tool used by law enforcement for steganography detection. His current work is on detecting hidden data in digital video using Discrete Cosine Transform coefficients - the most likely form of video steganography. Mr. Bryan is also in charge of security for the URI Computer Science Department networks.
