ssdeep is a program for computing context triggered piecewise hashes (CTPH). Also called fuzzy hashes, CTPH can match inputs that have homologies. Such inputs have sequences of identical bytes in the same order, although bytes in between these sequences may be different in both content and length. ssdeep uses a rolling hash algorithm, hence changes to the file will result in only localized changes in the CTPH signature.
