Absolution is an e-Discovery and computer forensics investigation tool that collects, analyzes and reports on digital evidence. The premise behind Absolution is to provide a single integrated system for exhaustive and robust examination of bulk data operated in the simplest way possible. In fact, Absolution should be usable by any reasonably tech savvy individual.

Absolution also aims to provide an extensible platform usable by advanced investigators, researchers, auditors, law enforcement, litigators (eDiscovery), enthusiasts, and anyone else that needs to perform a comprehensive search of large amounts of data.
