The Trend Micro Locality Sensitive Hash is a fuzzy hash algorithm that can be used to compare similar but not identical files. Identifying near duplicates and similar files is known to be useful to identify malware samples with similar binary file structure, variants of spam email, or backups with corrupted files. This package contains the tlsh_unittest utility, a command-line tool to generate TLSH hash values and compare TLSH hash values to determine similar files.
