Through the Cyber Security Division Cyber Forensics project, DHS S&T partners with the NIST CFTT project to provide forensic tool testing reports to the public. The CFTT project has established a methodology for testing computer forensic software tools utilizing tool specifications, test procedures, test criteria, test sets, and test hardware. Report results encourage developers to update and improve tools and provide end users with information on tool capabilities necessary for use and acquisition.
Reports, organized by tool category, can be accessed and downloaded via the links below. Reports within each category are organized by publication date (newest to oldest).
