The BitCurator Project, a collaborative effort led by the School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities at the University of Maryland, builds on previous work by addressing two fundamental needs and opportunities for collecting institutions: (1) integrating digital forensics tools and methods into the workflows and collection management environments of libraries, archives and museums and (2) supporting properly mediated public access to forensically acquired data.

The project is developing and disseminating a suite of open source tools. These tools are currently being developed and tested in a Linux environment; the software on which they depend can readily be compiled for Windows environments (and in most cases are currently distributed as both source code and Windows binaries). We intend the majority of the development for BitCurator to support cross-platform use of the software. We are freely disseminating the software under an open source (GPL, Version 3) license. BitCurator provides users with two primary paths to integrate digital forensics tools and techniques into archival and library workflows.

This webinar will introduce the BitCurator environment and briefly highlight support for mounting media as read-only, creating disk images, using Nautilus scripts to perform batch activities, generation of Digital Forensics XML (DFXML), generation of customized reports, and identification of sensitive data within data.

Participants who are interested in trying out the software in advance can download and install the BitCurator environment by following the instructions at:
