State of Forensics
Computer Forensics has been around almost as long as the computer itself has been around. Unfortunately, over the past 10 years, even as the computing world has shifted to reducing computing devices to smaller and smaller sizes, the Computer Forensic industry has not followed this trend. The small and portable forensic machines on the market currently still weigh in at well over 15 pounds and cost over $3,000 before your software licenses. Software licenses themselves can easily set you back another $4,000. In today's world of commodity computing and ever shrinking budgets and space, why not throw out the old school forensic options and come see what new exciting things are being done by TWC Security.

 

TWC Security Forensics
At TWC Security, we wanted to take advantage of today's computer technology and match it with the latest in open source technologies. When a college or graduate student joins a forensics program, they fight for access to a limited amount of machines that the schools can offer. We aim to remove this problem in all markets from educational to corporate. Our base package starts at $125 per device, and includes all of the software you will need with NO additional cost for licenses. So check out our complete product lineup today and while you are here please download our open source live forensic tool, All-In-USB.

Welcome everyone to Thimbleweed Consulting's Security Division, known from here on as TWCSec. 

TWCSec was started in 2011 as one of the future divisions of its parent company Thimbleweed Consulting. Thimbleweed Consulting's two founders, Harry Cooper and Matt Neimeyer, determined that one thing they wanted to bring to their customers and the general computing and programming community was better and easier to use tools and services.

The first project to be tackled by TWCSec is the All-In-USB forensic USB key. The All-In-USB key is an outgrowth of the frustration that Harry found when trying to find good and sound forensic tools during his Master's program at Utica College. The key grew from a small idea of a package of open source tools to an educational tool that will teach its users, while at the same time retaining all the features a Forensic examiner would want for capture and analysis work.

All-In-USB provides currently the following items:

1) An on-load memory imager/capture tool

2) A light weight PHP webserver serving up a graphical interface to many command line tools.

3) Tool management, Saved Tool jobs, quick grep, Boot Loader manager, and more!!!

4) A boot loader interface (non-geeks we will be putting out a "configure tool" to setup your USB drive for this feature). Boot a machine into your favorite forensic environment and image a drive quickly.

5) A portable VM app. Load a favorite ISO or VM to parse your forensic evidence.

6) A live capture PHP application to run your favorite collection of tools.

7) A directory of key open source forensic tools that no examiner would want to be without.

8) A set of Unix/Linux tools that every examiner misses on Windows, usable IN WINDOWS!

These are just a few of the items we are releasing in our v.1 release. We are working on the v.2 release already as well as an anticipated Timeline of the growth of this new tool. We expect that release to be done in the next 3-4 weeks. In v.2 we hope to be announcing the inclusion of a new and exciting set of Mac forensic tools so that this key can be used across various OSes.

I do want to include one last piece of information, licensing. We are trying to include as many tools as possible in the releases as we move forward, but unfortunately it is an EXTREMELY tedious process trying to verify each tools licensing, so please be patient with us as we work to ensure the open source aspect of this tool. Finally, for those tools that we can not validate, we will make a list of "recommended non-loaded tools" available, so that you can gather the tools together. If we also have a "config" entry for that tool, we will post that as well.

Well I hope that in the next month we can show each of you the fruits of our labor of the past few months.

Thanks,

Harry
