dc3dd - Enhanced version of dd that includes features useful for forensics

Description:
dc3dd is a patched version of GNU dd to include a number of features useful
for computer forensics. Many of these features were inspired by dcfldd, but
were rewritten for dc3dd.

    * Pattern writes. The program can write a single hexadecimal value or a
    text string to the output device for wiping purposes.
    * Piecewise and overall hashing with multiple algorithms and variable
    size windows. Supports MD5, SHA-1, SHA-256, and SHA-512. Hashes can be
    computed before or after conversions are made.
    * Progress meter with automatic input/output file size probing
    * Combined log for hashes and errors
    * Error grouping. Produces one error message for identical sequential
    errors
    * Verify mode. Able to repeat any transformations done to the input
    file and compare it to an output.
    * Ability to split the output into chunks with numerical or alphabetic
    extensions

Packages

dc3dd-7.2.641-1.el5.x86_64 [130 KiB] Changelog by Richard Cordovano (2014-06-16):
* Release 7.2.164-1

	* Log output may be sent to multiple job logs and hash logs. Simply specify
 	  log=LOG and/or hlog=LOG more than once.

 	* Verification of an image restored to a device larger than the image is now
 	  supported. Specify hof=DEVICE to hash only the bytes dc3dd writes to the
 	  device. Specify fhod=DEVICE to hash both the bytes dc3dd writes to the
 	  device and all the bytes that follow, up to the end of the device.   

 	* Specifying hof=DEVICE will now default to phod=DEVICE behavior (hash only 
 	  the bytes output by dc3dd, not the full device).
