Overview Edit

The National Software Reference Library (NSRL) (previously called the National Forensic Software Library) is designed to collect software from various sources and incorporate file profiles computed from this software into a Reference Data Set (RDS) of information. The RDS can be used by law enforcement, government, and industry organizations to review files on a computer by matching file profiles in the RDS. This will help alleviate much of the effort involved in determining which files are important as evidence on computers or file systems that have been seized as part of criminal investigations.

The library is supported by the National Institute of Justice, Federal, State, and local law enforcement, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology to promote efficient and effective use of computer technology in the investigation of crimes involving computers.
