This page will list the third party modules that have been written for Autopsy. Autopsy comes with a set of modules, but other developers are encouraged go write modules instead of stand-alone tools.

Autopsy has many new frameworks and as more modules are written, this page will obviously get longer.

Ingest Modules

Ingest modules in Autopsy run on each data source and file that are added to the case. These modules are responsible for the big data analysis where they extract data from specific files and put the results in the embedded database.

Autopsy AHBM (sdhash)

  • Description: This module allows you to use sdhash to perform fuzzy hash matching. The investigator can match files against other files or sdhash reference sets during ingest, or search for similar files from the directory viewer or search results after ingest. Released as part of OSDFCon 2013 Development contest.
