Abstract

Over the past few years, the internet has been evolving rapidly and a new paradigm in web development has taken shape. Often referred to as Web 2.0, it is a shift in web development which focuses on sharing information and allowing user interaction. The sharing of information by users has resulted in a new location for law enforcement to discover evidence. However, the process of locating this evidence is often a tedious one.

Crawler 2.0 is a tool with law enforcement's needs in mind. It is a web crawler and parser with Web 2.0 technology in mind. Given a Web 2.0 page as a starting point, it will interpret known content types and provide a basis for keyword searches. Crawler 2.0 is intended to be expandable for the addition of new, updated, or custom sites and technologies.
