We’re super excited to be here with another update to Amped FIVE and we’ve been busy working on a host of new features. Let’s take a look at what’s new!
We’re now able to reveal to you our new Report Template options within the reporting feature in FIVE, allowing the customization of generated reports using pre-packaged templates or creating your own. This is fantastic for tailoring your forensic reports to suit your case or organization needs.
Let’s take a look at the new report style and the default templates!
As you would generate a report in previous builds, navigate to the Generate Report… option found under Project.
Here you’ll find the new options for the report template as well as the existing reporting features (which I’ll go through anyway, in case you are new to FIVE).
Dear Amped blog readers, welcome to this week’s tip! Today we’re dedicating some room to a simple yet very effective trick that can make Amped Authenticate reports more comprehensive and clear.

Dear friends, welcome to this Tip Tuesday! It’s a rather anomalous one, indeed, since we’ll not show any trick about using a specific Amped solution as usual. But we’ll still provide you with a very good tip: we’ll guide you through some of the freely available datasets you can find online, that you can use to test and validate our Amped FIVE, Amped Authenticate, Amped Replay, and Amped DVRConv. Yes, you’ve read correctly! There is lots of data out there that you can use to make your own experiments and increase your confidence in our software reliability. Keep reading to find out.

Dear Amped blog readers, welcome! This week’s tip is dedicated to a rather hidden feature of Amped Authenticate: the possibility to use TSV (Tab-Separated Values) as the output format for the Smart Report and Batch Processing tools, instead of the classical HTML format. All those thinking “why should we even care?!”, raise your hands! I see many of you! Keep reading to find out why this feature could be way more important than you think.
When we talk about Amped Authenticate, you may automatically think of its use in detecting forged and manipulated images such as those created using editing software to portray a different scenario or message from that of the original purpose of the image, and you’re certainly right about that (particularly in the age of the ever-prevalent ‘fake news’). The great thing about Amped Authenticateis that it’s also so much more on top of forgery detection – identify image processing history from capture to publish, extract images from documents, provide camera ballistics, but, in my view most importantly, add more weight to your child sexual exploitation, or CSE, investigations with all these tools and ultimately safeguard vulnerable children.
I always think of Authenticate as the tool I wish I’d had during my time examining mobile devices and computers, now realizing its potential to further solidify my cases and digital evidence, least of all because of the seamless integration with Griffeye Analyze. As digital forensics investigators, the majority of our work involves CSE material and recovering evidence from a multitude of devices to prove or disprove the offense in question, and the more evidence we can provide the more likely we are to achieve a successful prosecution or clear an innocent party – we keep an open and unbiased mind as forensics professionals, as always.
The PRNU, or photo response non-uniformity (also known as camera ballistics), capabilities of Authenticate are often under-utilized by law enforcement digital forensics professionals – I admit, I didn’t realize it had such a tool and how useful it could be in my work at the start of my career! Let’s take a safeguarding investigation as an example, often unpleasant cases in which a child has been exploited. We know law enforcement and governments around the world have similar methods of tracking illegal images and videos, usually through databases, in order to identify such material quickly and to avoid unnecessary exposure of traumatic material to investigators, but these safeguarding cases often involve newly generated images, not stored in any database.
