== what about the validation of legal/illegal licenses of commercial software? ==

There are lots of web sites that can provide valuable information for forensic investigators. (This page will probably be broken into categories eventually...)
  
I'm sometimes requested by the Courts to process with investigations in order to detect is a company is using software (e.g. AutoCad, MS Office, Adobe) with licenses or not.
+
== WHOIS Queries ==
The evidence of such stuff is easy or not. The display of the "About" is sometimes enough but for some software the evidence is not so easy.

May I propose we open a new section to address such topics?

The WHOIS Service can be used to find the owner of a domain. Sometimes this is only sufficient to find the registrar for a domain, but even that is a start.

: Sounds like a good idea. How about [[How to determine if software is legally licensed]]? It should probably go in the [[:Category:Howtos]]. [[User:Jessek|Jessek]] 16:11, 19 July 2007 (PDT)

== Web Page Archives ==

Web page archives can give the investigator a look at what a web page used to look like. The most well known is the [http://www.google.com/help/features.html#cached Google cache], but here are some others:
  
== Global Directory of Analysts ==
+
* [http://web.archive.org The Internet Archive's WayBack Machine] can produce a nicely formatted page showing how a web site looked on certain dates. For example, [http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.yahoo.com/ the history of yahoo.com's homepage] gives a nice history lesson. The machine records both main pages and subpages. For example, note the changes in time between [[Jesse Kornblum]]'s [http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.profiles.yahoo.com/jessekornblum Yahoo! profile].

I am setting up a global directory of computer forensics analysts, and am looking for feedback to the idea. Although the directory is in the UK, I want it to be global. Any thoughts, please put them on Computer Forensics [http://www.computer-forensics.co.uk] in the forums section. Thanks and regards, Simon

: Given the lack of response I'm not sure this is a viable idea. [[User:Jessek|Jessek]] 21:13, 26 February 2007 (PST)

: Doesn't seem like a good idea to me. [[User:Simsong|Simsong]] 18:50, 15 March 2007 (PDT)
+
: Response is small because the very idea and both sites are not well known within North America.  Computer forensics here has been mostly a secondary role rather than a principal focus.  To raise awareness of both efforts, this wiki and computer-forensics.co.uk, you need to get their existence promoted in major publications and the primary professional organizations.

== List of OS changed files at boot time or poweroff. ==
+
 
+
Some times i found useful to know which files are changed on boot time of OS or on poweroff. For example to know what happened with OS ( Windows or Linux or ... ) what files to exclude or include by investigation. So i started collect this information with qemu and mactime. I think this wiki is the best place to post it, what do you think haw should i name it and the category? Also i will thankful if some one can correct my English.
+
 
+
I would encourage you to post it at [[Files changed at boot:Windows XP]], [[Files changed at boot:Windows Vista]], and the like. [[User:Simsong|Simsong]] 18:53, 25 October 2007 (PDT)

== Anti-forensic Tools Link on Homepage ==
+
 
+
The anti-forensic tools link on the homepage of this wiki doesn't appear to go to the proper page, but rather goes to a pro-forensic tools page. Do we have a page just for anti-forensic tools? It would appear to me that the internal link should point to that type of a page rather than one on pro-forensic tools.  Thoughts? [[User:Cobalt2020|AEI Forensics]]
+
 
+
== Organizing Anti-Forensics and Page Naming query ==
+
I've made a start on trying to organize the Anti-Forensics information creating a number of sections including Category:Anti-Forensics. I created a category for Category:Anti-Forensics Tools(uppercase) with out realising there was already a Category:Anti-forensics tools (lowercase). Is there any standardization on whether page titles should be upper or lower case? I would have though upper case being the better option...

== File Header Page ==
+
 
+
Do we have a page on this forensic wiki devoted to File Header information such as specific file header and footer signatures or at least a page of links to known file header compendiums? Do we want one? [[User:Cobalt2020|AEI Forensics]]
+
 
+
I've started a weekly posting of forensics research. In my quick review of the other websites that come up when doing a google search for "computer forensics" it seems that nothing is really up-to-date, so perhaps we can start a more active community here. Perhaps this will grow into a blog roll. [[User:Simsong|Simsong]] 23:46, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

== Removal of non-contributing users ==
+
 
+
I've written a little SQL statement which will remove the 1100 or so usernames that have been registered but which have never contributed anything and have no talk. This was considered for the mediawiki project but never implemented (weird). Anyway, unless there is a suggestion, I'll go ahead and do it... [[User:Simsong|Simsong]] 05:10, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

== Tools table ==

Is it possible to add [[Wireshark]] and [[NetworkMiner]] to the Tools table on the Main Page (here: ''Network Forensics: Snort, ... '')? [[User:.FUF|.FUF]] 17:08, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

[[User:Simsong|Simsong]] 04:40, 12 September 2008 (UTC) Done.

Revision as of 11:25, 24 February 2007

There are lots of web sites that can provide valuable information for forensic investigators. (This page will probably be broken into categories eventually...)

WHOIS Queries

The WHOIS Service can be used to find the owner of a domain. Sometimes this is only sufficient to find the registrar for a domain, but even that is a start.


Web Page Archives

Web page archives can give the investigator a look at what a web page used to look like. The most well known is the Google cache, but here are some others:
