Forensic Laboratory (ForensicLab)

The Forensic Laboratory was established in connection with a Ministry of the Interior of the Czech Republic project entitled “Problems of cyber threats from the point of view of Czech Republic concerns” (VD20072010B13). The laboratory’s equipment allows for making safe copies of storage devices and their subsequent analysis.

What we do

In our laboratory, we investigate and secure digital evidence for the purposes of forensic analysis. The process often includes sophisticated methods of data extraction from storage devices, including breaking protection of encrypted devices.

Equipment

  • FRED (Forensic Recovery of Evidence Device) computer
  • EnCase analytic software
  • Data diodes: special equipment for connecting drives with guaranteed write protection 

The lab’s activities are focused on these topics
