Join Jungwoo Ryoo for an in-depth discussion in this video Hashing in computer forensics tools, part of Learning Computer Forensics.
…Many of the computer forensics tools available today they come equipped with…built in hash functions.…The main purpose of these built in hash features is the verification and…validation of your data you're working in your computer forensics investigation.…For example, there is a tool called FTK Imager, and…it comes with both MD5 and SHA or sha hash algorithms.…There is also a tool called ProDiscover and it comes equipped with MD5.…
An alternative to these built in…hash features is manually computing hash values.…As we saw in another video, you can use a Linux operating system and…use it's build in hash functions to compute the hash values.…Now we'll do a brief demo of the built in hash features of FDK imager and…pro discover.…Now let's look at how hashing functions are built into…different computer forensic tools.…For this I'll use a tool called FDK imager.…
Let's start FTK Imager.…Choose run as administrator, click on it.…Your FTK Imager is now started.…Before you move forward,…let's make sure that you have a USB drive plugged in to your computer.…
