The Autopsy is a forensic tool which is used by the military, law enforcement, and corporate examiners to investigate what had happened on a smartphone or a computer. The Autopsy has a plug-in architecture which allows the user to find add-on modules or even develop custom modules written in Java or Python.
Main features of Autopsy are:
  • Multi-User Cases: Collaborate with your fellow examiners on large cases.
  • Keyword Search: Text extraction and the index searched modules allow you to find the files which mention specific terms and find the regular expression patterns.
  • Timeline Analysis: Displays system events in a graphical interface to help identify activity.
  • Web Artefacts: Extracts web activity from common browsers to help identify user activity.
  • LNK File Analysis: Identifies shortcuts and accessed documents.
