Link to Pages for Expanding
Could we add a link to the Main Page for all of the other pages that need expanding (i.e. Category:Articles that need to be expanded)? I think we're more likely to get help if we advertise where we need it! Jessek 05:52, 19 March 2007 (PDT)
Global Directory of Analysts
I am setting up a global directory of computer forensics analysts, and am looking for feedback to the idea. Although the directory is in the UK, I want it to be global. Any thoughts, please put them on Computer Forensics  in the forums section. Thanks and regards, Simon
- Given the lack of response I'm not sure this is a viable idea. Jessek 21:13, 26 February 2007 (PST)
- Doesn't seem like a good idea to me. Simsong 18:50, 15 March 2007 (PDT)
- Response is small because the very idea and both sites are not well known within North America. Computer forensics here has been mostly a secondary role rather than a principal focus. To raise awareness of both efforts, this wiki and computer-forensics.co.uk, you need to get their existence promoted in major publications and the primary professional organizations.
Hi, I'm the author of Hachoir, a generic framework for binary file manipulation. I don't know if I can add it in your wiki. I prefer to have your review first :-)
Hachoir supports many file formats (more than 60 formats) and have many features:
* Fault tolerant parser (truncated/buggy file or buggy parser) * Smart syntax: you don't have to care about endian or charset, and you can mix byte and bit fields * Few functions to modify files * File recognition using header/footer in a disk image (in any file) with few false positive (each file is checked using the parser) * Written in Python: OS independant and easy to script/extend * curses, wxWidgets and Gtk interfaces * Many programs based on hachoir-core and hachoir-parser: * hachoir-strip: remove metadata and other "useless" informations * hachoir-grep: find substring in a binary file (using hachoir parsers: so search is Unicode aware) * hachoir-subfile: find all subfiles in a file * etc.
