Course Description

If you’ve been following our series of courses on using Evimetry to perform high-speed, forensic acquisitions, you must have asked yourself “How do I use an AFF4 forensic image in my favorite forensic tool?”  The answer is the Evimetry Filesystem Bridge, which we use in this course to access a previously collected Evimetry AFF4 image in a forensic tool that doesn’t natively support the AFF4 forensic format. 


  • Before any forensic acquisition you must document the evidence
  • See my Cybrary course: “Evidence Handling: Do it the Right Way”
  • See my Cybrary series of courses on forensic acquisition using Evimetry
  • Get a full featured, evaluation copy of Evimetry (Link found in Syllabus)
  • Internet connected computer
  • An “evidence” computer or drive
  • An AFF4 forensic image previously acquired using one of the Evimetry Methods
  • A storage drive (USB3 External)

Course Goals

By the end of this course, students should be able to:

  • Understand the Evimetry Filesystem Bridge
  • Use the Evimetry Bridge to Access a Previously Acquired AFF4 Forensic Image
  • Review Those Programs with Built-in AFF4 Support
