Kirjuri is a digital forensic evidence item management system. It is a web application designed to help forensic teams manage, track and report devices delivered for forensic examination. It was born in the Helsinki Police Department, which handles over a thousand devices annually. Managing these devices and keeping track of the changes and locations to all this material proved to be a difficult task, since no ready software suites for multi-user evidence device management existed.
Kirjuri was written from the ground-up with one task in mind – easing the clerical tasks of the forensic investigator by organizing devices under examination requests. It is easy to deploy on an internal network using a Linux-based virtual machine as a server. Kirjuri is being used by a number of private organizations and law enforcement agencies in a number of countries. The current public release for Kirjuri is 0.9.2 .
Kirjuri requires a web server with MySQL and PHP7 installed. Some performance issues have been noticed when running Kirjuri on a WAMP server, so installing on a Linux server is recommended.
Kirjuri is no longer under active development, since I don’t have time to dedicate to it anymore. The current release version is 0.9.2. I am working on a few fixes, notably the statistics page showing incorrect numbers, but I will not guarantee any timetables for this. If you are interested in taking over the project and developing the tool further, please reach out to me via email.
