WHICH TOOLS TO ANALYZE EXIF METADATA of IMAGES & VIDEOS ?
Hi, I am from Amped Software, first of all thanks a lot for the nice words about Amped FIVE and Amped Authenticate.
I want to add my two cents here. While only looking at the images may not be enough for your case, in Authenticate we have also a Social Media Identification filter. If you have pictures downloaded from social media, it can search for typical traces. Of course, given the rapid and often unknown changes in social media processing of images, the comparison cannot be always exaustive, but it can give you some indicative information. You can read more about it here https://blog.ampedsoftware.com/?s=%22social+media+identification%22
For what regards a list of court approved tools, I am not aware of any official certifications for this kind of products. And, in any case, these are just tools and as such can be used either in the right or in the wrong way. As developers, it's our duty to help minimize the human error as much as possible, but the other half of the responsibility is in the hands of the user.
We have written some time ago about the validity of our tools in court, you can check the article here https://blog.ampedsoftware.com/2017/05/31/are-amped-software-products-validated-or-certified-officially-for-forensic-use/
