Indexing and Searching
To assist with rapid evidence identification, we have added a high-performance, full-featured text search engine to NetAnalysis® v2. The following data types are added to the search index:
Many web browsers maintain their own index to assist with searching (such as Google Chrome c2Body, Apple Safari Lucene Index or Opera Blink Stash). NetAnalysis® can extract the original data from these search databases.
Once the user has created an index, it can be easily searched.
The above window shows a search for the words “cocaine” and “mdma”. The search index is searched for the corresponding words or phrase and a search hit list is presented to the user. Each row represents a single file and shows the user where the search hit is located. The user can easily jump from a search hit back to the original source URL record.
It is a simple process to review all the search hits in context as they are displayed in the lower panel.
