Question

How do I import custom hash sets to create a custom KFF group?

 

Answer

Prerequisites:

  • A text file containing a list of the desired hashes, saved as a *.csv or *.tsv.  This can be created manually or by using "Export File List Info" in FTK, including only the desired hash column in your list (e.g. MD5, SHA1, etc.).

Example:

MD5
16C3A5060A5D7D2FD6C1D647B40442DC
16C3A5060A5D7D2FD6C1D647B40442DD
16C3A5060A5D7D2FD6C1D647B40442DE
[Leave an empty line (hard return) after the last hash]

OR

  • A HashKeeper (*.hke) file

 

Procedure:

  1. In FTK go to Manage > KFF and click "Import"
  2. Click "Add File"
  3. Select the Status for your custom hash set
  4. Browse to the file with your custom hash set (*.csv, *.tsv, *.hke) 
  5. Give the hash set a name
  6. Specify a Source Vendor name, Version, and Package name
  7. Click "OK", then click "Import"
  8. Back in the KFF Admin dialog, under Defined Groups click "New"
  9. Give the group a name
  10. Select a "Status Override" (set to "None" to use the original sets' statuses)
  11. Highlight your new KFF set in the Available Groups/Hash Sets list and add it to your new group by clicking <<, then click "OK"

Overview

These steps will help you import a custom KFF hash set and create your own KFF group in FTK.
