Secret Service to procure Secure View 3 cell phone forensic tools
Secure View 3's
The U.S. Secret Service plans to purchase the Secure View 3 mobile phone forensic investigative tool which enables a user to both access and analyze data found within a suspect’s cell phone.
The Secret Service will also be procuring the svProbe tool, which accompanies Secure View 3, and allows an investigator to “create individual case files that may contain multiple data from multi suspect’s phones,” explains Secure View 3 on its Website.
svProbe contains seven distinct analytics capabilities: Multiple Keyword Search, Timeline Feature Screen, Link Graph Feature Screen, Prime # List Feature Screen, Activity Map Feature Screen, Gallery Feature Screen and Web Activity Feature Screen.
“Secure View’s case management tool was combined with our analytical tools (svProbe) to provide the examiner the ability to analyze data, identify important data, note important data and create a separate evidence file,” explains the company’s Website.
In a Request for Quotation (RFQ) that it issued on Oct. 25, the Secret Service indicated that this procurement will be set-aside for a small business.
The forensic tool will be used at the National Computer Forensics Institute in Hoover, AL, said the agency.
Proposals are due from prospective vendors by November 5.
