Hey everyone;

At yesterday's meeting, I outed myself as an IT Security guy ... I just wanted 
to pass along a great free resource for anyone interested in IT Security issues, 
malware, hacking, etc. See below. I do get some marketing-spam from them re: 
training and stuff, but I consider that to be the cost of the publication...

In order to download the pdf version, you do need to provide an email address 
(note: "an")

Secure Hash® Integrity Verification Utility  
Secure 1st have announced the release of Secure Hash V1.0. This new Windows 
application is designed to generate, store and analyse digital signatures. These 
digital signatures can then be used during a cyber forensic investigation to 
insure the integrity of the investigation.

Secure Hash scans the hard disk (or any storage media) on a Windows PC and 
calculates the MD5, SHA1 and SHA2 hashes of the files and builds a list with 
other vital information such as file size, location, date of creation and date 
of modification. The resulting list can be used during a cyber forensic 
investigation. For example, the investigator may use Secure Hash to save the 
names, locations and hashes of all the files on a PC during the first stage of 
the investigation, after the PC has been removed from the crime scene. Later, 
the investigator could use this information in a court of law or in a lab to 
generate a report and file list to insure the integrity of the investigation.

Secure Hash is 100% compatible with all versions of Microsoft Windows from 
Microsoft Windows 95 to Microsoft Windows 7 including the 64 bit variants.
