Advanced Forensics Format Library (utilities)


The Advanced Forensic Format (AFF) is on-disk format for storing computer forensic information. Critical features of AFF include:

 - AFF allows you to store both computer forensic data and associated
   metadata in one or more files.
 - AFF allows files to be digital signed, to provide for
   chain-of-custody and long-term file integrity.
 - AFF allows for forensic disk images to stored encrypted and
   decrypted on-the-fly for processing. This allows disk images
   containing privacy sensitive material to be stored on the Internet.

This package provides the AFF Toolkit, that is a set of programs for working with computer forensic information. Using these tools you can:
 * Interconvert disk images between a variety of formats, including:
     - raw or "dd";
     - splitraw (in which a single image is split between multiple files);
     - AFF format (in which the entire disk image is stored in a single
     - AFD format (in which a disk image is stored in multiple AFF files
       stored in a single directory);
     - AFM format (in which an AFF file is used to annotate a raw file).
 * Compare disk images and report the data or metadata that is different.
 * Copy disk images from one location to another, with full verification
   of data, metadata, and the automatic generation of a chain-of-custody
 * Find errors in an AFF file and fix them.
 * Print information about a file.
 * Print detailed statistics about a file
 * Generate a XML representation of a disk image's metadata (for example,
   acquisition time or the serial number of the acquisition device).
 * Produce a XML "diskprint" which allows a disk image to be rapidly
   fingerprinted without having the computer the SHA1 of the entire

The AFF Toolkit provides these executables: affcat, affcompare, affconvert, affcopy, affcrypto, affdiskprint, affinfo, affix, affrecover, affsegment, affsign, affstats, affuse, affverify and affxml.
