The TSK blackboard organizes data into artifacts. This page lists the standard artifacts and what attributes should be defined with them. For more details on the blackboard, refer to http://sleuthkit.org/sleuthkit/docs/framework-docs/mod_bbpage.html.

This page lists general names of artifacts and attributes. Below are links to the specific Java references.

  • Java Artifacts (note that the C++ code has the full description of the artifacts)

  • TSK_TAG_ARTIFACT
  • TSK_TAG_FILE

BlackboardAttribute.ATTRIBUTE_TYPE

  • TSK_ENCRYPTION_DETECTED
