Digital Evidence Investigator® gives investigators the ability to customize Search Profiles and determine exactly what and where you want to look for digital evidence. This is especially convenient when looking to tailor a search for a forensic triage type scan or a targeted collection. This is accomplished by using the Targeted Folders Option when creating a custom file capture.
Bethesda, Maryland: ADF Solutions, the leading provider of automated forensic software for investigators and lab examiners, today announced the release of Mobile Device Investigator™ the newest forensic software to investigate iOS and Android devices. Qualified professionals can request a free trial of Mobile Device Investigator™ at www.tryadf.com.
When conducting an investigation, it is important to be flexible and follow the direction of your investigation with as few obstacles as possible. If your examination brings you a new file type, such as a video generated by a hand held camera, or a proprietary file created by a unique software, you want to be able to search for, or collect these files types right away either on-scene or back in the lab.
ADF offers the best digital forensic solution for getting relevant data from an Apple Mac laptop or desktop running APFS since it is easy to use and offers investigators a quick and easy way to collect and analyze evidence. In this short 3-minute video, ADF's digital forensic specialist, Rich Frawley shows how to boot a MacBook Air (APFS, non-encrypted) with Digital Evidence Investigator.
Whether you are preparing to go on-scene or you are in your digital forensic lab getting ready to perform triage or one or more digital forensic scans, this video tutorial will show you how you can easily create a keyword capture and add keywords to a Search Profile. We begin from when you have started to create a Custom Search Profile and want to add your own unique keywords.
ADF software lets investigators and examiners search for files by keyword(s) using substrings or regular expressions. ADF software allows you to search for keywords in all file and folder names, file content and metadata, and artifact records from other captures.
Sensitive Site Exploitation refers to techniques used by military and intelligence officers to collect and exploit captured equipment, media and documents in theaters of operation around the world. The process of exploiting sensitive or tactical sites to gather intelligence from targets for counter terrorism, force protection, or other national security needs is performed by forward operators using exploitation kits that can:
Military and intelligence officers process an ever-increasing amount of data from which they need to gather actionable intelligence. This data comes from a variety of devices seized in combat operations or during an investigation.
Document and Media Exploitation (DOMEX) is the "collection and exploitation of captured equipment, documents, and media to generate actionable intelligence." DOMEX analysis helps officers, special forces, and field operatives on the front lines complete a holistic picture of the intelligence available to them at the time.
During a criminal investigation, prioritizing the evidence is paramount to your success as an investigator. Filtering what is critical to the case and what isn't is the difference between success and failure of an investigation.
Forensic triage - sometimes referred to as "digital forensic triage" - is the process by which you collect, assemble, analyze, and prioritize digital evidence from a crime or investigation.
It's difficult to do this in a timely manner when you don't have the proper tools. Depending on the type of investigation, it's a process that can involve sorting through mountains of digital data.
One of the reasons that investigators choose ADF software as their primary triage tool is because it can be used standalone or in conjunction with traditional forensic software. Triage is ideal for front-line investigators because it's fast, easy-to-use, and can net results in situations where time matters. Deployed in a forensic lab, triage software can reduce forensic backlogs and allow forensic examiners to prioritize deep dive forensic investigations.
The term triage naturally brings to mind a medical emergency where you need to get in quickly, assess the damage and deal with the most serious problems first. Digital forensic triage has the same application but it's applied to a crime scene or investigation which involves computers or other digital media. Standard forensic methods normally take place in a forensic lab where a trained forensic examiner would perform a complete examination. Digital triage is a front line step in saving time and reaching satisfactory results faster.
ADF triage performance is fast -- built to be under two minutes for certain scans. Digital forensic triage speed and performance can vary based on a number of factors including the triage software you are using, the search criteria you choose, the suspect hardware configuration, and how much you know about what you are looking to understand in your investigation.
ADF's New Forensic Software Empowers Investigators and Prosecutors
ADF Solutions, the leading provider of automated forensic software for investigators and lab examiners, announced today the release of new software versions 1.4 for Digital Evidence InvestigatorⓇ, and versions 4.4 for Triage-InvestigatorⓇ, and Triage-G2Ⓡ software.
"We are very excited to be the first digital forensic software to parse macOS Mojave log files natively under Windows strengthening our macOS support", stated Raphael Bousquet, CTO, and co-founder of ADF Solutions. "In our world of fast and efficient forensic analysis, we strive to reduce data noise for the investigator. The addition of picture and video classification is a great step in the right direction!"
A precise timeline view links user activities with pictures, videos, and files of interest so investigators can quickly build a digital forensic report to share with prosecutors or other investigators. The new version leverages enhanced automation and enables investigators to run in-depth digital forensics scans quickly. The highlights of this new release for the investigative and forensic community include:
A simple 2-step process lets non-technical investigators and examiners quickly perform a RAM capture when running a live scan on the computer from a collection key:
- Click "Create RAM Dump" from the main menu
- The RAM Dump will be saved to the collection key as a .bin file and then zipped
A long, long time ago in a galaxy far far away
(2006 to be exact and the galaxy was Maryland USA)
It was a period of innovation.
Computers, USBs, all kinds of devices ...
Some people were committing digital crimes
from their seemingly hidden bases in the digital world.
Digital forensic experts understand the importance of remembering to perform a RAM Capture on-scene so as to not leave valuable evidence behind. Capturing volatile data in a computer's memory dump enables investigators and examiners to do a full memory analysis and access data including:
Today, ADF is announcing the release of new digital forensic software versions for our products:
- Digital Evidence InvestigatorⓇ (DEI) version 1.3.0
- Triage-InvestigatorⓇ version 4.3.0
- Triage-G2Ⓡ version 4.3.0
ADF Solutions, a leading provider of digital forensic and media exploitation software, has released Triage-G2, the latest evolution of ADF's award-winning media exploitation tool. Triage-G2 is deployed by special forces, military and intelligence agencies worldwide and has a proven track record of supporting site exploitation missions, including Tactical Media Exploitation, DOMEX, MEDEX, and biometric identity operations.
Designed for nontechnical operators, Triage-G2 employs a simple two-step process to rapidly scan, extract, and analyze critical intelligence from computers and digital devices. The tool can be deployed on existing computing devices and on a small portable USB key that does not require dedicated computer hardware. The collected data can then be easily distributed via portable reports or ingested into data repositories, which include Processing, Exploitation and Dissemination Systems (PED).
