What is Scalpel?
Scalpel is an open source data carving tool.
Scalpel is a file carving and indexing application that runs on Linux and Windows. The first version of Scalpel, released in 2005, was based on Foremost 0.69. There have been a number of internal releases since the last public release, 1.60, primarily to support our own research. The newest public release v2.0, has a number of additional features, including: o minimum carve sizes. o multithreading for quicker execution on multicore CPUs. o asynchronous I/O that allows disk operations to overlap with pattern matching--this results in a substantial performance improvement. o regular expression support for headers/footers. o embedded header/footer matching for better processing of structured file types that may contain embedded files.
As of 6/27/2013 Scalpel has been released under the Apache 2.0 License and the source is available at The Sleuth Kit github repository.
