EnScript Showcase: EnCase App Central, Evidence Management and Reporting

Robert Batzloff

And we’re back with another post to walk you through one of the over 150 EnScripts® that can be found at EnCase® App Central. This three-part series will introduce and explore four EnScripts to help you make the most of EnCase App Central, manage and organize your evidence, and finally, show you a new option when it comes to creating your case report. In the previous post we discussed What’s New in App Central and Manfred’s Comprehensive Case Template. In this post we’ll walk through Jamey Tubbs’ incredibly helpful, time-saving EnScript: Time Zone Prior to Processing.

Q&A: Transitioning from EnCase Version 6 to Version 7 Webinars

Ken Mizota

At parts 1 and 2 of the webinar series, "Transitioning from EnCase Version 6 to Version 7," we ran out of time to answer all of your questions. In this blog post, I've attempted to answer them and hope it helps you continue a productive transition.

Can you discuss how you’ve made reporting less complicated and what resources we could use to simplify reporting even further?

Once the hard work of painstaking analysis and review of an investigation is complete, determining what to share with an external audience is an important, but often time-consuming task. EnCase® Version 7 provides powerful tools to efficiently incorporate the findings of the investigation into a polished examination report with a minimum of effort. While powerful, Report Templates can have a steep learning curve, and particularly in time-sensitive investigations, simplicity may be more desirable than power. When time is precious and working with Report Templates is more complex than desired, we built the Report Template Wizard to make it faster and easier to perform basic reporting modifications directly from Bookmarks.

Part 1 of 3 – EnCase App Central & Manfred's Comprehensive Case Template

Robert Batzloff 

Now that the Enfuse Call for Papers has just gone out, I'm reminded of all the hard work that went into CEIC earlier this year. While there was record attendance, I know not everyone was able to make it to Vegas and so I wanted to re-examine a few EnScripts that were showcased in May; specifically EnScripts designed to save time, manage evidence and help create quick, professional reports. In this three part blog series I'll show you how to access and navigate EnCase App Central, how to join the EnCase Developer Network and I'll walk you through these EnScripts:

  • What's New in App Central
  • Manfred's Comprehensive Case Template
  • Time Zone Prior to Processing
  • Quick Report 

    Password Recovery Can be Practical

    Guidance Software’s Tableau Unit recently released Tableau™ Password Recovery, a hardware + software solution to accelerate password attacks on protected files, disks, and other containers.

    It’s always fun to play with new toys, and when the new hotness is a purpose-built, linearly scalable, password-cracking behemoth, how can one not share? I did a bit of digging while running a two-server Tableau Password Recovery setup through its paces in our labs here in Pasadena, California, and while I found many good tools and tutorials for password cracking, I found it difficult to differentiate the theoretically possible from the actually practical. Here are some thoughts from that process.

    Why Now is the Time to Make the Move to EnCase® Version 7

    Robert Bond

    I’ve been fortunate enough to meet a number of forensic investigators—both in law enforcement and inside corporations—and to hear a little about how they do their work. All of us in every line of work have preferred tools, checkpoints, and workflows, so it can be very easy to procrastinate on making the change to a new version of a favorite tool. However, I’m genuinely excited to tell you that, if you’ve been waiting for the right time to upgrade to EnCase Forensic version 7, that time is now.
