JHOVE is a tool to identify, validate and characterize file formats. It was originally a collaborative project by JSTOR and Harvard University Library. It is currently an active open source project no longer backed by those institutions, and as of 2015 has become an official project of the Open Preservation Foundation. JHOVE is licensed under the GNU Lesser General Public License.
JHOVE2 was intended as a successor to JHOVE, but it does not support all the same formats, so both are in use.
