Counterintelligence Tool Repository (CITR)

The Counterintelligence Tool Repository (CITR) is a warehouse of classified and unclassified tools that support digital forensics and counterintelligence needs. Whenever possible, the actual tool is provided through the repository portal in the form of a downloadable executable. When a downloadable executable cannot be provided, the repository advises how to obtain the tool from the hosting agency.

Authorized personnel with a CAC or PIV may access this tool list through the DC3 Customer Portal. All others should contact TSD@dc3.mil
