Difference between pages "Optimistic decompression" and "Template:Disk Encryption"
(Difference between pages)
|−|Optimistic decompression is a digital forensics technique in which each byte of an input buffer is examined for the possibility of compressed data. If data is found that ''might'' be compressed, a decompression algorithm is invoked to perform a ''trial decompression.'' If the decompressor does not produce an error, the decompressed data is processed. The decompressor is thus called ''optimistically''---that is, with the hope that it might be successful. |+|
|−|Optimistic decompression is used as a tool to validate JPEGs that are produced by [[ file carving]] . The approach can also be used for fragment reassembly carving by attempting to combine different combinations of fragments, looking for a combination that produces neither decompression errors nor visual discontinuities. This is the approach used by the [[ Adroit]] file carver. |+|
