FileTSAR – All-in-one Free Forensic Toolkit for Law Enforcement Agencies

FileTSAR, a Free Forensic Toolkit that combines various open source forensic investigation tools used by law enforcement agencies.

The all-in-one free forensic toolkit was developed by Purdue Polytechnic researchers to help detectives in the reconstruction of digital evidence from multiple data types.

It captured the data flows and a mechanism to reconstruct multiple data types that includes documents, images, email and VoIP sessions.

The current network forensic investigative tools have limited capabilities and they cannot communicate with each other, said Kathryn Seigfried-Spellar.

“FileTSAR, a free forensic toolkit has everything required for criminal investigators to complete their work without having to rely on different network forensic tools.”

This tool aids forensic investigators to overcome their burdens, the project was funded by many agencies including the US Department of Justice.

The intended function of the tools is to capture the data flows, analyze and reconstruct documents, images, email, and VoIP conversations.

“To validate the large-scale capabilities of the toolkit, we conducted a “stress test” of the system using approximately 123,500,000 packets from a collection of packet capture files totaling nearly 100GB.”

FileTSAR a free forensic toolkit also employs hashing for each file it carves to maintain the forensic integrity of probative data.

“We aimed to create a tool that addressed the challenges faced by digital forensic examiners when investigating cases involving large-scale computer networks,” Seigfried-Spellar said.

Live API Attack Simulation

94% of organizations experience security problems in production APIs, and one in five suffers a data breach. As a result, cyber-attacks on APIs increased from 35% in 2022 to 46% in 2023, and this trend continues to rise.
Key takeaways include:

  • An exploit of OWASP API Top 10 vulnerability
  • A brute force ATO (Account Takeover) attack on API
  • A DDoS attack on an API
  • Positive security model automation to prevent API attacks
