libfuzzy-dev

ssdeep is a tool for recursive computing and matching of Context Triggered Piecewise Hashing (aka Fuzzy Hashing).

Fuzzy hashing is a method for comparing similar but not identical files. This tool can be used to compare files like regular hashing does (like md5sum or sha1sum) but it will find similar files with little differences.

For example, it can be used to identify modified versions of known files even if data has been inserted, modified, or deleted in the new files.

This package contains the developments files.

Computes context triggered piecewise hashes (fuzzy hashes)

root@kali:~# ssdeep -h
ssdeep version 2.14.1 by Jesse Kornblum and the ssdeep Project
For copyright information, see man page or README.TXT.

Usage: ssdeep [-m file] [-k file] [-dpgvrsblcxa] [-t val] [-h|-V] [FILES]
-m - Match FILES against known hashes in file
-k - Match signatures in FILES against signatures in file
-d - Directory mode, compare all files in a directory
-p - Pretty matching mode. Similar to -d but includes all matches
-g - Cluster matches together
-v - Verbose mode. Displays filename as its being processed
-r - Recursive mode
-s - Silent mode; all errors are suppressed
-b - Uses only the bare name of files; all path information omitted
-l - Uses relative paths for filenames
-c - Prints output in CSV format
-x - Compare FILES as signature files
-a - Display all matches, regardless of score
-t - Only displays matches above the given threshold
-h - Display this help message
-V - Display version number and exit
