Disk image format identification

In order to ease the use of arbitrary digital objects given as disk images, they have to be characterized to match suitable emulators and/or to determine how to proceed with this type of data.

The focus of this project is to identify the technical characteristics of an image file using the disktype tool ( Unfortunately, disktype in its current version is not producing machine-readable results, hence we cannot automate the characterization process.

Expected tasks:

  • develop a concept for hierarchical (technical) image information (e.g. media-type, partition-table etc.)
  • emit machine-readable data


C programming skills.
