This is the '''Forensics Wiki''', a [http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.5/ Creative Commons]-licensed [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wiki wiki] devoted to information about [[digital forensics]] (also known as computer forensics). We currently list a total of [[Special:Allpages|{{NUMBEROFARTICLES}}]] pages.
+
 
+
Much of [[computer forensics]] is focused on the [[tools]] and [[techniques]] used by [[investigator]]s, but there are also a number of important [[papers]], [[people]], and [[organizations]] involved. Many of those organizations sponsor [[Upcoming_events|conferences]] throughout the year and around the world. You may also wish to examine the popular [[journals]] and some special [[reports]].

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.

;[[Forensic Linux Live CD issues]]
+
:Forensic Linux Live CD distributions are widely used during computer forensic investigations. Currently, many vendors of such Live CD distributions state that their Linux do not modify the contents of hard drives or employ "write protection." Testing indicates that this may not always be the case. [[Forensic Linux Live CD issues|Read More...]]
