Siegfried-based characterization of directories and disk images
License:MIT License
Platforms:Linux, macOS, OS X
Function:Content Profiling,Metadata Extraction,Appraisal


Brunnhilde is a command-line utility that runs Siegfried against a specified directory or disk image, loads the results into a sqlite3 database, and queries the database to generate reports to aid in triage, arrangement, and description of digital archives. The program will also check for viruses unless specified otherwise, and will optionally run bulk_extractor against the given source. Reports include CSVs, a tree report, and a human-readable HTML summary of the directory or disk image. All outputs are placed into a new directory named after the identifier passed to Brunnhilde as the last argument. Brunnhilde is also capable of exporting files from logical disk images utilizing many file systems, including HFS+.

Dependencies include Python (tested in 2.7 and 3.4+), Siegfried, ClamAV, bulk_extractor, Sleuth Kit, and HFSExplorer. All dependencies already installed and compiled in the BitCurator environment.

To install the command-line utility with pip: "pip install brunnhilde".

For a GUI wrapper for Brunnhilde, see the Brunnhilde GUI Github repo.
