Description

Siegried is a file format identification tool that, like DROID and Fido, is based on PRONOM. However, it uses a different pattern matching algorithm that offers different strengths and weaknesses to those other PRONOM based tools. A detailed description of the tool and why it was created can be found in this blog post.
