Project iVe Vehicle Navigation Infotainment System Forensics for Law Enforcement Fact Sheet

Modern vehicles have complex networks that govern critical safety functions such as brakes and airbags and control navigation and infotainment systems. This complexity has increased exponentially within the past decade. Modern vehicles have an average of 70 computers and five net-works that connect the computers and generates about 25 gigabytes of data per hour.  These onboard systems present new opportunities for law enforcement agencies because the systems collect data that can be used as evidence in criminal and terrorist investigations. 

The Department of Homeland Security, Science and Technology (S&T) Directorate Cyber Forensics project created a digital forensics toolkit, iVe to help law enforcement agencies obtain digital evidence from vehicle navigation and infotainment systems.
