Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2007, $137,500)

This project will develop a USB Live Acquisition and Triage Tool to provide the ability for forensic examinations to be performed on a live system prior to seizure. US-LATT is intended to capture common stateful information from systems and in addition, target data immediately relevant to cases involving subject matter such as youth exploitation, parole violations, and possible terrorism. The tool can be used as both a pre-seizure function to collection the live system information before the system is turned off and as a triage tool to determine if further consideration is merited for a given system.
