Tool Kit: Digital Evidence

Here's a few items for your digital evidence tool kit.

Handheld Data Acquisition Device

The Media MASSter 102 PRO FORENSIC is an economical, high speed, handheld data acquisition device designed as a low-cost solution without sacrificing performance and versatility. This portable unit is self-contained (CPU, OS, applications built-in) featuring a 7-inch color touch-screen for ease of operation on the bench or in the field and requires no connection to a separate computer. It can acquire data from one suspect to multiple evidence drives at speeds greater than 20GB/min and has a PCIe Expansion port allowing installation of a variety of adapters for M.2 drives, SCSI or IDE drives and other devices.

Cell Tower Forensics: Crime Scene Coverage Survey

BTS Tracker measures radio environment activities, specifically the real cell coverage of an area of interest. It answers the question, “To which BTS was the suspect connected to at the time of the incident?” The technology assists investigators in verifying the range of a BTS, which devices could have been registered, and looking at possible routes of escape and the habits of people involved. It collects 2G, 3G, and 4G information, including signal strength, bands, and frequencies, simultaneously for every carrier, without a SIM-card. A mobile app manages the BTS survey, then the log files are analyzed with a dedicated software-platform.

Digital Forensic Triage Tools

Cyan Forensics has developed a new generation of digital forensic triage tools that reduce the time required to scan devices from hours-or-days to seconds-or-minutes. The tools are particularly useful for time-critical investigations like ICAC and CT and are already getting “quick wins” for law enforcement in the UK. Typically, a 1TB HDD can be completely scanned in less than 30 minutes, with matches being examined while the scan is in progress. As well as dramatically accelerating lab and field work, the tools can be used on site for knock and talks, and by probation and parole officers on monitoring visits. Request a demo online.

Recovering Latent Fingerprints from Cadavers

IN A HOMICIDE CASE, the recovery of latent impressions from a body is just one more step that should be taken in the process of completing a thorough search. This article is directed at crime-scene technicians and the supervisors who support and direct evidence-recovery operations both in the field and in the controlled settings of the medical examiner’s office or the morgue under the coroner’s direction.
