Forgery Detection Improvements

Photo Forgery Detection, which helps to robustly determine, whether a photo was changed after leaving a digital camera or smartphone. With v.6.3.1 we enhanced this function even more:

  • New cameras added. We supported 300 more cameras and now the total amount of supported devices exceeds 3300!
  • New algorithm introduced: Error Level Analysis. Error level analysis (ELA) identifies areas within an image that are at different compression levels. With JPEG images, the entire picture should be at roughly the same level. If a section of the image is at a significantly different error level, then it likely indicates a digital modification.
  • New algorithm introduced: Double Quantization Tables. Double Quantization Tables (DQT) algorithm determines whether the picture was compressed in the JPEG format more than once. If the JPEG file was opened, edited and saved, some compression artifacts will inevitably appear.

With all these improvements, Belkasoft Forgery Detection Plugin becomes more powerful and robust than ever. More information: https://belkasoft.com/forgery-detection.

There are a number of new and updated functions in Belkasoft Evidence Center:

  • Ext4 filesystem supported. This is widely used Linux/Unix file system which now can be processed even without drivers
  • Apple DMG disk image format supported
  • Automatic virtual machine drives mounting. Now, if a folder inside a drive or drive image contains virtual machine files, they will be mounted as a data source automatically. You don't have to search Virtual Machines and add their files manually. Moreover, the product will process nested virtual machines, so that you can automatically add, for example, a pagefile inside virtual machine, which was kept inside another virtual machine.
  • Mac OS X property list (PList) viewer added
