Carving JPEGs From SOI to EOI | YourSecurityTech

Data carving is the process of identifying & extracting forensic artifacts from digital evidence using file signatures. For example, files using the Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) compression standard begin with the header 0xFF0xD8 and end with the footer 0xFF0xD9. These are also known as Start-of-Image (SOI) and End-of-Image (EOI) markers respectively.
