TrID - File Identifier
"TrID is an utility designed to identify file types from their binary signatures. While there are similar utilities with hard coded logic, TrID has no fixed rules. Instead, it's extensible and can be trained to recognize new formats in a fast and automatic way."

DAITSS Action Plan Service
An action plan is an xml document which specifies how the format will be treated in the short-term and in the longer-term, and when the plan will be reviewed. These treatments might include "forward migration" - converting the format to a newer version of the same format, e.g. PDF 1.2 to PDF 2.0. Or they might include "normalization" - converting the format to a different format that may be easier to preserve, e.g. PDF 1.4 to PDF/A. In all cases, the file in its original format and version, will be archived in addition to any migrated or normalized file formats.
