This page is for discussing ideas regarding next-generation (NG) imaging tools.

Note that some of the ideas mentioned can be already used by imaging tools, but the idea of this page is to determine how useful these features could be for next-generation of imaging tools. The scope is mainly a software-based imaging tools, but not limited to. Some features might not be doable, because of limitations of certain image file formats.

Compression

  • Reduces the amount of data that needs to be written; improved the overall imaging speed.
    • Hash-based imaging
    • detection of easy (emtpy-block) and hard (encrypted block) to compress data
    • multi-threaded compression
    • sparse ranges
    • de-duplication
