I announce the initial release of stegdetect.  Stegdetect is an
automated tool for detecting steganographic content in images.

It is capable of detecting several different steganographic methods to
hide messages in JPEG images.  Currently, the detectable schemes are
jsteg, jphide, and outguess 01.3b.

Stegdetect is covered by a BSD license and should compile and run on
most UNIX-like operating systems.

You can download stegdetect from
