Technical Solutions Development (TSD)

As DC3’s technical solutions development capability, Technical Solutions Development (TSD) tailors software and system solutions engineered to the specific requirements of digital forensic examiners and cyber intrusion analysts. TSD validates commercial off-the-shelf (COTS), government off-the-shelf (GOTS), and in-house developed software/hardware before it can be used in a forensic process. In addition, TSD functions as the DoD repository for cyber counterintelligence (CI) tools.

TSD's Technical Objectives:

  • Decrease response to malicious attack, providing the DoD freedom to maneuver in cyberspace

  • Quickly and accurately determine the extent of a network attack and attribute the source of the attack

  • Catalog contraband images for faster examination and identification

  • Uncover hidden data not discovered with traditional forensic tools

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.
