Forensic Toolkit® 3.0 Preview at HTCIA International

AccessData announces the preview of Forensic Toolkit® 3.0 (FTK®). AccessData embarked on a new direction in computer forensics a year and a half ago with the release of FTK 2, which brought with it a great number of technological challenges. The challenge was creating a solution that scaled massively via the use of an embedded Oracle database to overcome the obstacles examiners face with ever-growing caseloads and increasingly large datasets. In addition, AccessData aimed to bring true distributed processing to the computer forensics environment, in order to enable its customers to leverage legacy hardware in a way that would dramatically speed up the processing and indexing of those large datasets. This new architecture was conceived to allow examiners to get to the analysis phase faster and conquer their caseloads more efficiently.

Over the last 18 months, AccessData has worked closely with examiners in the field, as well as thought leaders in the practice of computer forensics to refine this new architecture, reengineer elements of the technology, and greatly improve upon the issues this new functionality presented early on in its introduction to the market. The result is FTK 3.0, which will be demonstrated at HTCIA International on August 24th in Lake Tahoe, California. Below are just a few highlights of the FTK 3.0 release.

Reengineered for Improved Performance:

  • UI Performance: The FTK GUI is 10 times more responsive across the board, even on machines with only 4GB of RAM.
  • Indexing: Indexes quickly and search results populate fast, even with large result sets.
  • Distributed Processing: Every copy of FTK 3 comes with 4 workers, allowing you to leverage CPU resources from up to 4 computers (3 distributed workers and 1 worker on the main FTK examiner system).

Compelling New Capabilities:

  • RAM Analysis: Enumerate all running processes from 32-bit machines, search memory strings, and process RAM captures for passwords, html pages, lnk files and MS Office documents.
  • Mac Analysis: Many new capabilities, such as processing B-Trees attributes for metadata, decrypting Sparse Images or Sparse Bundles, PLIST support, SQLite support and more.
  • Pornographic Image Identification: Enables the automated detection and identification of pornographic images by analyzing visual features in the image to assess its actual visual content.

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption.

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
