Interested in doing research in computer forensics? Looking for a master's topic, or just some ideas for a research paper? Here is our list. Please feel free to add your own ideas. ''Potential Sponsor,'' when present, indicates the name of a researcher who would be interested in lending support in the form of supervision or other resources to a project.

This is the list of Training Providers, who offer training courses of interest to practitioners and researchers in the field of Digital Forensics.  Conferences which may include training are located on the [[Upcoming_events]] page.

==AFF Enhancement==
+
Some training providers offer on-going training courses that are available in an on-line "any time" format. Others have regularly scheduled training that is the same time each month.  Others have recurring training but are scheduled at various times throughout the year. Providers training courses should be listed in alphabetical order, and should be listed in the appropriate section. Non-Commercial training is typically offered by governmental agencies or organizations that directly support law enforcement. Tool Vendor training is training offered directly by a specific tool vendor, which may apply broadly, but generally is oriented to the vendor's specific tool (or tool suite). Commercial Training is training offered by commercial companies which may or may not be oriented to a specific tool/tool suite, but is offered by a company other than a tool vendor.
[[AFF]] is the Advanced Forensics Format, developed by Simson Garfinkel and Basis Technology. The following enhancements would be very useful to the format:
+
* Signing with X.509 or GPG keys data segments and metadata.
+
* Encryption of data segments with an AES-256 key specified by a password
+
* Encryption of the AES-256 key with a public key (and decryption with a corresponding private key)
+
* Evaluation of the AFF data page size. What is the optimal page size for compressed forensic work?
+
* Replacement of the AFF "BADFLAG" approach for indicating bad data with a bitmap.
+
  
The following improvements in the AFF tools would be useful:
+
<i>Some training opportunities may be <u>limited</u> to <b>Law Enforcement Only</b> or to a specific audience.  Such restrictions should be noted when known.</i>
* Modify aimage so that it can take a partial disk image and a disk and just image what's missing.
+
== On-going / Continuous Training ==
* Improve the data recovery features of aimage.

Flash memory devices such as USB keys implement a [http://www.st.com/stonline/products/literature/an/10122.htm wear leveling algorithm] in hardware so that frequently rewritten blocks are actually written to many different physical blocks.

Revision as of 13:25, 13 June 2014

This is the list of Training Providers, who offer training courses of interest to practitioners and researchers in the field of Digital Forensics. Conferences which may include training are located on the Upcoming_events page.

PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU EDIT THE LIST BELOW
Some training providers offer on-going training courses that are available in an on-line "any time" format. Others have regularly scheduled training that is the same time each month. Others have recurring training but are scheduled at various times throughout the year. Providers training courses should be listed in alphabetical order, and should be listed in the appropriate section. Non-Commercial training is typically offered by governmental agencies or organizations that directly support law enforcement. Tool Vendor training is training offered directly by a specific tool vendor, which may apply broadly, but generally is oriented to the vendor's specific tool (or tool suite). Commercial Training is training offered by commercial companies which may or may not be oriented to a specific tool/tool suite, but is offered by a company other than a tool vendor.

Some training opportunities may be limited to Law Enforcement Only or to a specific audience. Such restrictions should be noted when known.
