FOCA - Tool to Find Meta Data and Hidden Information in the Documents

FOCA (Fingerprinting Organizations with Collected Archives)

FOCA is a tool used mainly to find metadata and hidden information in the documents it scans. These documents may be on web pages, and can be downloaded and analyzed with FOCA.

It is capable of analyzing a wide variety of documents, with the most common being Microsoft Office, Open Office, or PDF files, although it also analyses Adobe in Design or SVG files, for instance.

These documents are searched for using three possible search engines: Google, Bing, and DuckDuckGo. The sum of the results from the three engines amounts to a lot of documents. It is also possible to add local files to extract the EXIF information from graphic files, and a complete analysis of the information discovered through the URL is conducted even before downloading the file.


Check here our latest releases.


To run the solution locally the system will need:
  • Microsoft Windows (64 bits). Versions 7, 8, 8.1 and 10.
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.1.
  • Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 x64 or greater.
  • An instance of SQL Server 2014 or greater.


When starting the app the system will check if there is a SQL Server instance available. If none is found, the system will prompt a window for introducing a connection string.
