This software was developed within the POSTDOC’09 project of the University of West Bohemia. The software presents an additional security measure for a networking communication via the HTTP protocol. Using steganography and encryption, the digital signature, it embeds additional security elements into an existing communication flow. These elements allow detection of a possible attack on the communication. Unauthorized modification of the transmission is considered as the attack. The software runs independently on used web browser and server; no specific software equipment is needed. The software does not limit the existing communication. The distribution package includes source code, binaries for MS Windows platform and instructions on use.
