In an effort to try and make the workflow easier for examiners, we have been busy developing an Internet Evidence Finder EnScript for use with EnCase® v6 & v7. The goal of this EnScript is to make it easier for the examiner to launch an artifact search from within EnCase while they may be analyzing their case. IEF will run in the background and provide a familiar search status screen while it is searching and the examiner can continue working on their case in EnCase.
Once completed, the artifacts will be held in an IEF case file, just like if you had launched IEF the traditional way. In addition, once IEF has completed the search for artifacts, the EnScript provides the ability to copy the found artifact information back into EnCase as record data or into an Excel spreadsheet for additional review.
