%X The most common forensic activity is searching a hard
disk for string of data. Nowadays, investigators and analysts are
increasingly experiencing large, even terabyte sized data sets when
conducting digital investigations. Therefore consecutive searching can
take weeks to complete successfully. There are two primary search
methods: index-based search and bitwise search. Index-based
searching is very fast after the initial indexing but initial indexing
takes a long time. In this paper, we discuss a high speed bitwise search
model for large-scale digital forensic investigations. We used pattern
matching board, which is generally used for network security, to
search for string and complex regular expressions. Our results indicate
that in many cases, the use of pattern matching board can substantially
increase the performance of digital forensic search tools.
