Thiruvananthapuram: Law enforcing agencies are now armed with more software tools to fight cyber crimes with a premier centre claiming to have developed them.
Emailtracer, CyberCheck, Siman and Calltrack are some of the softwares developed indigenously by the Resource Centre for Cyber Forensic (RCCF) here.
RCCF, under the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC), has emerged as the premier national centre for development of investigative tools through authentic analysis of cyber crimes and using well established methods and techniques, C-DAC Chief Administrative Officer P G Gopinath said.
Emailtracer, a cyber forensic analysis tool, incorporates graphical features to help investigators easily track sender’s identity in cases of anonymous and threatening emails. It can also be used to retrieve information from mailbox files with extensions. “The device can trace any email received by anyone,” he told PTI.
This tool analyses the email header and gives complete details of the sender, including IP address, the key point in finding the culprit, he said. It gives the geographical location of the sender, he said.
The cybercheck is a Windows-based application, which allows law enforcement agencies to analyse hard disk content, including deleted files.
