Belkasoft Evidence Center, a digital forensic investigation software, was used by Croatian Police to prosecute an international case involving exploitation of children for pornography. During this case, Croatian Police used Belkasoft’s product to extract and analyze information from suspect’s computers, memory dumps and hard drive images. A detailed case study was made available by the police.

“We are proud and excited to see how our product helps law enforcement officials solve dangerous crimes”, says Yuri Gubanov, Belkasoft CEO. “Stopping child abuse is one of the major achievements made possible with Belkasoft Evidence Center”.

Solving the Crime

In an official letter received from the Ministry of Interior Police Administration Bjelovarsko-bilogorska of Croatia, Belkasoft was informed that its product, Belkasoft Evidence Center, was used by the Criminal Police Department of Bjelovar, Croatia to solve a criminal case.

“We can’t go into more detail at this time”, says Yuri Gubanov, Belkasoft CEO. “The police informed us that our product was used as a major source or evidence for the case. We are happy to see Evidence Center getting used by a police department, and excited to receive a testimonial such as that”.

The tool helped the police obtain information regarding the suspect’s use of social media, instant messengers, web history data, etc. The police used data carving to extract deleted data and acquire destroyed evidence. A comprehensive report was produced and forwarded to the Public prosecutor in Bjelovar.

Belkasoft Evidence Center Helps Solve Crime

Belkasoft Evidence Center can automatically locate, process and analyze volatile evidence stored in the computer’s RAM, identify encrypted files, carve Internet chat logs, Web browsing history and email communications including information stored in digital pictures and videos. The ability to process office documents in a wide range of formats enables investigators to perform near-instant full-text search among all the documents discovered on the suspect’s PC.

Low-level access to hard disk and system structures means that even data that’s been deleted by the suspect cannot escape from investigators. Supporting Windows, Unix/Linux, Android and Mac OS X file systems, natively mounting images created in EnCase, DD and SMART formats, UFED and chip-off binary dumps, FTK images, mobile phones and many popular virtual machines without using these or any third-party tools, Belkasoft Evidence Center can collect more evidence than any single competing tool in its class.

Automated Detection of Pornographic Content in Videos and Still Images

One of the key features of the Ultimate edition of Belkasoft Evidence Center is the ability to analyze multimedia content such as videos and still images, searching suspect computers for signs of illicit contents. Automated pornography detection helps quickly detect and locate illicit material in fully automated mode.

The detection of pornographic content makes use of neural networks in order to automatically discover matching content in still images and key frames extracted from video files. The neural network algorithms used in Belkasoft Evidence Center represent today’s state of art, which allows a certain level of false positive and false negative detections.

To help investigators detect more suspicious images, the tool assigns images and key frames numeric values representing the probability of an image to contain illicit content. Images can be sorted by that probability to allow highly suspicious images appear first on the list.
