Inspection and Sanitization Guidance for JPEG 2000

Abstract: This document outlines the findings of potential areas of concern that exist within the JPEG 2000 file format.  It also provides inspection and sanitization guidance for JPEG 2000 image files to address data attack, hiding, and disclosure risks.  This document does not address any potential security risks of the JPEG 2000 compression/encoding algorithm, but focuses more on the actual format as a container for the compressed/encoded image data.
