Magnet Forensics is pleased to announce that Internet Evidence Finder (IEF) v6.2 has been validated by the United States Defense Cyber Crime Institute (DCCI). DCCI is the research, development and evaluation arm that tests tools tailored to the specific requirements of digital forensic examiners and incident responders. DCCI is a part of the Department of Defense Cyber Crime Center (DC3).
The DCCI report evaluated IEF on 42 different criteria to determine the circumstances under which computer crime investigating agents assigned to Defense Criminal Investigative Organizations (DCIOs) may employ IEF for digital forensic investigation and analysis.
- IEF is forensically sound and does not modify evidence files upon reading them
- IEF successfully produces the same results after being run against the same dataset multiple times
- IEF successfully recovered data from a number of Internet related artifacts including: Hotmail, SkyDrive, Skype, Yahoo, AOL, Facebook, Gmail, Google Documents, Limewire, Dropbox, Twitter, Hushmail and more
- IEF supports searching raw, E01, Ex01, vmware virtual disks, folders and more
Validation by the US DCCI is another big vote of confidence for Internet Evidence Finder (IEF). Magnet Forensics is committed to incredibly high standards and takes pride in developing quality products that deliver accurate results. External validation helps confirm that product enhancements continue to be on the right track. The most feature-packed release of IEF to date, IEF v6.3, was just released.
