Getting Started in Forensic Research
Revision as of 05:25, 26 November 2008 by Simsong
Interested in getting involved in computer forensics research? Here's how to start.
- Read the proceedings for each of the past Digital Forensic Research Workshops sessions. If a specific article looks interesting, download it and read it!
- Review the IFIP Working Group 11.9 on Digital Forensics website and look at the proceedings from the past conferences (unfortunately, you can't download the papers and the book costs more than $100, but if you see something interesting it can usually be requested via interlibrary loan) (Some higher education libraries subscribe to SpringerLink which makes full text of these proceedings available to students and faculty as part of the school subscription)
- Search for interesting forensic terms at the ACM Digital Library and CiteSeer
- Review the Sleuth Kit Website. In particular, review the issues of The Sleuth Kit Informer and download a copy of Sleuth Kit for your computer.
