Each of the algorithms help the investigators to search for the desired emails according to the various assumptions. The General Forensic Search method can further be narrowed down to be more specific, by searching for keywords in specific fields.

Fuzzy Search

Fuzzy Search

Automatically identify correct words, irrespective of spelling errors, enhancing the accuracy of search results.

Advanced error-tolerant search capability

Locate relevant information by accounting for spelling variations or mistakes, ensuring comprehensive search results.

Improved efficiency in locating evidence

Overcome the limitations of exact word matching by enabling the software to distinguish and retrieve accurate results, even with inaccurate spelling inputs.

That is in normal searching mechanism user need to provide the exact word to obtain the correct result. But in Fuzzy search user need not to worry about it. When you don’t know the exact argument corresponding to the desired result, this advanced search email mechanism will give you all possible result even without considering the spelling and other mistakes. For example if you search word with wrong spelling like "lst" it will automatically detect the correct one and give you the result with "ltd" or other similar words.

Regex Search

Regex Search

Utilize regular expressions to conduct complex searches and find specific string patterns within email data.

Pattern-based search functionality

Employ regular expressions to define customized patterns and search for strings that match those patterns, enabling precise and tailored searches.

Advanced searching with flexible pattern

Perform sophisticated searches by leveraging regular expressions to uncover email data that contains specific arrangements of patterns, enhancing the depth of investigation.

The Regular Expression Search is the another advanced email search mechanism which searches the evidences in forensic email data using various combination of patterns. This searching mechanism use pattern matching to search for particular string rather than creating search queries.

Proximity Search

Proximity Search

Search for words based on the distance between them, enabling investigators to identify related information within email conversations

Contextual searching based on word proximity

Specify the approximate range or distance between words to identify email content where those words occur in close proximity to each other, aiding in contextual analysis.

Efficient analysis of related information

Retrieve search results that reflect the relationship and context between words, helping investigators to uncover connections, identify relevant conversations, and gain valuable insights.

The Proximity Searching is the mechanism works with the concept of spacing between the words. Forensic email search mechanism works with the concept of spacing between the words. It will search for the email data with two or more words and the approximate distance between them. Distance means the number of characters separating that two words. This search evidence forensic can be executed by the Hit & Trial method.

Stem Search

Stem Search

Search and retrieve results based on the root word, allowing investigators to explore all possible variants.

Comprehensive exploration of word variations
