EnScript Resources

Every once in a while I get a query about EnScript programming, specifically if there are any books or online material available for it. So I have listed out a few good links to sites that have tutorials for EnScript that should get you started. Additionally keep watching this space and I will keep posting material (samples, tutorials) here too.

Resource 1: Lance Mueller’s now closed site (it’s still online but no more updates/comments will be posted)

Resource 2: My good friend Jon Stewart’s blog

Interestingly Lance is not a programmer and Jon on the other hand is a hardcore programmer. And I have had the pleasure of working with both these fine gentlemen for a number of years and they’ve done some excellent work with scripts.

There are some other people too that have posted EnScripts or Enpacks for free, these sites do not have any tutorials.

42 LLC's blog
Geoff Black's Forensic Gremlins
Takahiro Haruyama's blog - Most of the site is in Japanese but easy to follow
ForensicZone
Paul Bobby's blog

In addition, the guidance portal too has some publicly submitted scripts, but it is not an open forum.

If you are wondering what the heck EnScript is, it is a programming language with an API into Encase’s functionality; Encase is the most widely used commercial forensic tool and EnScript cannot be compiled or run without Encase.
