Tool Development

AFF Enhancement

AFF is the Advanced Forensics Format, developed by Simson Garfinkel and Basis Technology. The following enhancements would be very useful to the format:

  • Signing with X.509 or GPG keys data segments and metadata.
  • Encryption of data segments with an AES-256 key specified by a password
  • Encryption of the AES-256 key with a public key (and decryption with a corresponding private key)
