Joint Test Action Group (JTAG) is the common name for what was later standardized as the IEEE 1149.1 Standard Test Access Port and Boundary-Scan Architecture. It was initially devised for testing printed circuit boards using boundary scan and is still widely used for this application. Today JTAG is also widely used for IC debug ports. In the embedded processor market, essentially all modern processors support JTAG when they have enough pins. Embedded systems development relies on debuggers talking to chips with JTAG to perform operations like single stepping and breakpointing. Digital electronics products such as cell phones or a wireless access point generally have no other debug or test interfaces.

=== Forensic Application ===
+
 
+
JTAG forensics is an acquisition procedure which involves connecting to the Standard Test Access Port (TAPs) on a device and instructing the processor to transfer the raw data stored on connected memory chips. Jtagging supported phones can be an extremely effective technique to extract a full physical image from devices that cannot be acquired by other means.

Bruce Allen is a Research Associate at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California.

Interests include Software architecture, computer languages, parallel computing, parallel processor architectures, and supporting open-source software. Software contributions include development of the hashdb tool, development of the Bulk Extractor Viewer User Interface (used to browse Features extracted using the Bulk Extractor digital media triage tool), some of the Bulk Extractor scanners, the jlibewf and libewfcs readers, and implementations of high speed encryption and hashing algorithms that run on the Cell Broadband Engine processor.
