Guidance Software has released technical specifications for the second-generation EnCase evidence file format. Ex01 has been optimized for fast data access and memory usage, while maintaining the proven, trusted and secure technology that has made the EnCase file format a de facto standard for securing digital evidence.
With this specification, solution providers can now update their offerings to support the new file format.
The second-generation file format supports the built-in encryption capabilities included in EnCase Forensic Version 7, making the process of transporting and securing evidence safer, says Guidance Software. The specification document for this new format is available on the Guidance Software Customer Support Portal and in the Guidance Software Document Library.
