Everything You Need to Know about ADF Search Profiles
ADF ships with more than a dozen out-of-the-box digital forensic Search Profiles which are built to be either time based or case based. The time based Search Profiles are typically used by the military or for sensitive site exploitation or intelligence gathering where there is a  time limit on-scene. The case based profiles are focused on types of cases being investigated, such as executing a search for Child Exploitation Material (CEM / CSEM) or Child Sexual Abuse Material (CSAM).
ADF Search Profiles automatically capture relevant evidence during a digital forensic investigation. Investigators can create their own Custom Search Profiles which can then be shared with other investigators using ADF software. The ideal scenario is where digital forensic experts using Digital Evidence Investigator PRO, share Search Profiles with numerous field investigators using Triage-Investigator PRO.
