Encrypted Disk Detector

Encrypted Disk Detector (v2 released 04/22/2013) is a command-line tool that can quickly and non-intrusively check for encrypted volumes on a computer system during incident response. The decision can then be made to investigate further and determine whether a live acquisition needs to be made in order to secure and preserve the evidence that would …

This class teaches the theory, foundations and applications of modern cryptography. In particular, we treat cryptography from a complexity-theoretic viewpoint. In recent years, researchers have found many practical applications for these theoretical results, and so we will also discuss their impact along the way and how one may use the theory to design secure systems. …
