BFAS - Binary File Application Scanner: A prototype for scanning, detecting and reporting PII
Thursday, May 30, 2019

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM (Eastern Time)
Show in My Timezone
This webinar will discuss a CSIAC-developed prototype for detecting and extracting PII from over a thousand binary file formats by leveraging the widely used open source Apache Tika toolkit. The prototype, called “BFAS – Binary File Application Scanner”, integrates Tika through the implementation of a custom Powershell cmdlet which seamlessly injects a text extraction facility into the standard (existing) Powershell pipeline. A graphical user interface (GUI) was developed to facilitate multiprocessing and XML-based reporting and visualization. Ideas for extending the BFAS architecture to leverage machine learning (ML) methods will be discussed.
