Deployment Method:

NOTE

This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Enter Your Internal Repository Url

(this should look similar to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2/)


2. Setup Your Environment

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

2. Get the package into your environment

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2/. Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Copy Your Script

choco upgrade bulk-extractor -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:


choco upgrade bulk-extractor -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" 
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0
}

Exit $exitCode

- name: Install bulk-extractor
  win_chocolatey:
    name: bulk-extractor
    version: '1.5.5'
    source: INTERNAL REPO URL
    state: present

See docs at https://docs.ansible.com/ansible/latest/modules/win_chocolatey_module.html.


chocolatey_package 'bulk-extractor' do
  action    :install
  source   'INTERNAL REPO URL'
  version  '1.5.5'
end

See docs at https://docs.chef.io/resource_chocolatey_package.html.


cChocoPackageInstaller bulk-extractor
{
    Name     = "bulk-extractor"
    Version  = "1.5.5"
    Source   = "INTERNAL REPO URL"
}

Requires cChoco DSC Resource. See docs at https://github.com/chocolatey/cChoco.

  ensure   => '1.5.5',
  provider => 'chocolatey',
  source   => 'INTERNAL REPO URL',

Package Approved

This package was approved by moderator TheCakeIsNaOH on 10 Jan 2023.

Description

scans any kind of input (disk images, files, directories of files, etc)
and extracts structured information such as email addresses, credit card numbers,
JPEGs and JSON snippets without parsing the file
system or file system structures. The results are stored in text files that are easily
inspected, searched, or used as inputs for other forensic processing. bulk_extractor also creates
histograms of certain kinds of features that it finds, such as Google search terms and email addresses,
as previous research has shown that such histograms are especially useful in investigative and law enforcement applications.

Unlike other digital forensics tools, bulk_extractor probes every byte of data to see if it is the start of a
sequence that can be decompressed or otherwise decoded. If so, the
decoded data are recursively re-examined. As a result, bulk_extractor can find things like BASE64-encoded JPEGs and
compressed JSON objects that traditional carving tools miss.
