Abstract
Sifting through the many files on recovered devices for any digital forensic investigator can take a great deal of time. EviHunter was initially developed to identify evidentiary files of interest on the permanent storage and in memory of Android applications so that investigators can quickly identify files of interest to move quicker through the process. However, the original EviHunter project required improvements and functionality changes to make the project more public and visible to forensic investigators to allow greater collaboration. In this paper, I created a web portal from scratch that is capable of supporting the original EviHunter project alongside many additional features. This web portal supports multiple types of users, various methods of uploading android applications, and is also built with security in mind. I also provide an overview of the web portal system, in addition to highlighting the design, implementation, and explanations of how each component fits together. I show later on in this paper how the web portal solves and fixes the issues of the original EviHunter project so that investigators can collaborate and work together correctly. However, the web portal system can be improved further, and I discuss additional features that can be implemented to improve the project further.
