TAMPA, Fla. – American police and military operators without any special computer training may soon carry an “easy to use” USB thumb drive to conduct forensic evaluations on target computers, flash drives, SD cards, cell phones and more.
The cryptically titled Spektor is an upgraded digital media exploitation tool that allows users to quickly access all of the data, evidence and actionable intelligence on a target’s digital device without removing the hard drive or memory cards.
In addition, the USB drive can recover deleted data and track every action a target user has performed on the target devices as a part of its standard triage collections.
The technology was unveiled at the Special Operations Forces Industry Conference last week.
Designed by the English company Evidence Talks, the announcement says, “Limiting time on target to a minimum, while maximizing the identification and collection of key data…The fully automated analysis engine performs advanced digital forensic processing of the collected data, matching data against an almost unlimited set of keyword watch lists and more than 100 million hash values.”
Already available to law enforcement clients in the U.S. and United Kingdom, the company hopes to make its Digital Media Exploitation tools available to the U.S. military. The company claims the Spektor device recently passed Department of Defense evaluations.
