Because a lot of criminal investigations involve one or more digital devices, law enforcement agencies rely on investigative tools to reconstruct and analyze digital evidence. Traditional tools have limited capabilities and are incompatible with other tools. This means users often are required to purchase many different tools.
FileTSAR+, or Toolkit for Selective Analysis & Reconstruction of Files, provides a mechanism to selectively reconstruct and analyze multiple data types, including documents, images, email and VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) sessions for large-scale computer networks. Users can download a single, 10-gigabit file and use FileTSAR+ immediately. Law enforcement agencies with an interest gaining access to FileTSAR+ should submit information to an online form to initiate the process.

“This tool is the outcome of outstanding work done by Purdue researchers that can be utilized by law enforcements agencies. The researchers worked closely with the Tippecanoe County High Tech Crime Unit and other external partners to ensure that the tool not only functions properly but will also bring value to those agencies that utilize it.” – Matthew Halladay, Senior Business Development and Licensing Manager – Physical Sciences
