Seeding the net wth forensic data?
In discussions with a specialist journalist involved in cyber crime, hackings, and other malicious activities both organised and individual, an idea came to the table regarding the notion of "seeding" the databases that are targets for these crimes with undetectable forensic data so that when that data is stolen the hacker will not know what items are forensic specials or "normal". Forcing the hacker to sift through his stolen data to find those forensic specials.
I thought the idea was already in place but this appears to be not the case. I tend to think as a web designer that the idea of ensuring special data items are maintained waiting to be stolen is a great idea.
Those forensic items recorded and tracked using a secure database held by forensic IT specialists
care to discuss?

"Fingerprinting" using "Stenography" isn't a new concept.
I have to admit I want to but can't discuss the subject too much, mainly because I have a concept for a company that deals in handling data. Would say more, however I don't want to jinx it at this early stage.

The lack of knowing the integrity of their theft means their stolen assets loose value... signifciantly I would think.
example: pay $100 for 1 million emails that are infected with forensic items aint worth the risk...
or special Credit card account numbers and so on...
just thinking about how the industry may be too focussed on protecting only and not on manageing the real value [to the thief] of that data if stolen
The value of a credit card details remains only within the legitmate "system of use" and has no real value outside that system.
because only that legitimate system has the KEY [decypher] to what is of value and what is not.
hmmmm ...got me thinking....
