Description : Metadata anonymising toolkit
Metadata consist of information that characterizes data. Metadata are
used to provide documentation for data products. In essence, metadata
answer who, what, when, where, why, and how about every facet of the
data that are being documented.
Metadata within a file can tell a lot about you. Cameras record data
about when a picture was taken and what camera was used. Office
documents like pdf or Office automatically adds author and company
information to documents and spreadsheets.
Maybe you don't want to disclose those information on the web.
Mat only remove metadata from your files, it does not anonymise their
content, nor it can handle watermarking, steganography, or any too
custom metadata field/system.
If you really want to be anonym, use format that does not contain any
metadata, or better: use plain-text.
