Somerdata is pleased to highlight  more open source material aimed at applications in suppport of Data Diodes – content filtering. This set of Python scripts checks pdf, image , html, XML and MS Office files for hidden content, and where possible cleans them. The scripts can be run in GUI or command line, and produce reports enabling administrators to take further action.

This excellent set of scripts is available from http://www.decalage.info/en/python     or from us info@somerdata.com  on request.

Of course, you don’t need a data diode to take advantage of these scripts, but they form a useful addition to your cyberdefences if you want to maintain the best possible security from attack.
