Gargoyle Investigator LE is a software tool that provides investigators the ability to conduct automated in-depth search and analysis of live and imaged systems and detect the presence of exploitative material and child sexual abuse material (CSAM).

Utilizing Project VIC and PhotoDNA technology, Gargoyle Investigator LE analyzes media on a system and carves multimedia files out of other files—such as Word documents, PDFs, etc.

Powered by Project VIC and using PhotoDNA, Gargoyle Investigator LE performs fast and accurate identification of exploitative media. Files are scanned based on scope set by the user. The source of files can be a directory, mounted disk image, or a disk volume.

Gargoyle LE utilizes Project VIC, a standards-based protocol for the exchange of exploitation hashes, domestically and internationally, without having to touch or manipulate the data. Gargoyle LE also utilizes PhotoDNA technology, which provides transformations on an image to calculate its PhotoDNA signature, or hash, which can be compared to another image. This is used to find other copies of a given image, even if the image has been altered. Detections of such media are captured in the scan report, with blurred, categorized file information presented for the investigator.

Gargoyle LE provides comprehensive reporting in both HTML , PDF and CSV formats for use as digital evidence. Reports are generated in HTML to present the data to the investigator in an easy-to-navigate format.
