This is the Forensics Wiki, a Creative Commons-licensed wiki devoted to information about digital forensics (also known as computer forensics). We currently list a total of 954 pages.

Much of computer forensics is focused on the tools and techniques used by investigators, but there are also a number of important papers, people, and organizations involved. Many of those organizations sponsor [[1]] throughout the year and around the world. You may also wish to examine the popular journals and some special reports.

Joel Young, Kristina Foster, Simson Garfinkel, Kevin Fairbanks - Distinct Sector hashing for Target Detection
IEEE Computer , December 2012
Author : Joel Young, Kristina Foster, Simson Garfinkel, Kevin Fairbanks
Title : Distinct Sector hashing for Target Detection
In : IEEE Computer -
Address :
Date : December 2012

Using an alternative approach to traditional file hashing, digital forensic investigators can hash individually sampled subject drives on sector boundaries and then check these hashes against a prebuilt database, making it possible to process raw media without reference to the underlying file system.

Testing indicates that this may not always be the case. Read More...
