Ian Whiffin

DoubleBlak Digital Forensics is a Digital Forensics web site aimed at helping forensic examiners.

I am Ian Whiffin, an ex-Law Enforcement Officer / Digital Forensics Examiner with a mid-sized municipal police agency.

I currently work for one of the world leaders in Digital Forensics and Digital Intelligence Analysis.

Note that this website is my own side-project and was started while still a serving police examiner. All opinions and tools are my own not related to my full time role.

I have over twenty years experience in IT, 17 years in Policing (split between the UK and Canada) and over 7 years in Digital Forensics. I have been qualified as a Subject Matter Expert in court numerous times in the field of Digital Forensics and have a wealth of experience in the examination of computers, cell phones and other digital devices using not only a range of vendor tools but with software tools I write to fill the gaps left by vendors. Some of these tools are available for free in the Software section of this site (Requires authentication).

I am trained with numerous forensic software tools related to mobile devices and computers and in JTAG, ChipOff, ISP, Visual NAND Reconstructor and enjoy tinkering with Hardware Reverse Engineering. I have been writing my own software for many years using numerous different languages including C#, VB, Obj-C, ASP, PHP, Python and Javascript.

Authentication is free and easy and is a *most likely feable* attempt to stop the tools from getting into the hands of anybody outside of the forensic community.
