Abstract
S34A, Inc. proposes to build upon our successful Phase I R&D effort and commence the development of an integrated hardware, software, and service solution that facilitates the extraction of forensic data from SSDs - data that resides outside the Logical Block Address (LBA) space and is not accessible by traditional computer forensic techniques. This product development work will be performed in coordination with experts from a number of Federal computer forensics labs. When complete, the hardware and software products from Phase II will allow forensic examiners to exploit "stale," deleted or overwritten data that has been removed from the user addressable space as a result of garbage collection and TRIM commands. This integrated solution will provide Federal, State, and Local law enforcement with a capability that does not exist today. With SSD shipments expected to top 240 million units by 2016, this solution set will be essential to the effective performance of day-to-day law enforcement efforts to combat criminal and terrorist acts. TRL at beginning of Phase II - 4. TRL at end of Phase II - 8.
