The South West Regional Cyber Crime Unit needed a thorough, efficient way to identify cryptocurrency addresses and keys in seized digital evidence. It created the Nuix Bitcoin Extractor, a scripting tool that extracts and validates Bitcoin addresses from any data indexed by Nuix Workstation. This made it possible to:

  • Extract cryptocurrency addresses from mobile device images, PCs, laptops and cloud storage, scanning millions of items per hour
  • Quickly identify and act on leads extracted from these evidence sources
  • Connect Bitcoin addresses to suspects and, in one recent case, recover some of the stolen currency.
