Fragmented file carving is an important technique in Digital Forensics to recover files from their fragments in the absence of the file system allocation information. In this paper, we proposed a system design for solving the fragmented file carving problem taking into consideration, conditions of real-life fragmentation scenarios. We developed our evidence reconstruction and recovery system, and carried out experiments, to evaluate the capability in detecting and recovering obscured evidence. The results showed that our system is able to achieve a higher efficiency and accuracy (e.g. 1.5 minutes for the reconstruction of each highly fragmented and deleted (obscured) image in its entirety or 100% recovery), when compared with the commercial recovery system, Adroit Photo Forensics (e.g. 2.8 minutes and 6.3 minutes for a partial image recovery or failure in recovery, respectively).

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.

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 707 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 conferences throughout the year and around the world. You may also wish to examine the popular journals and some special reports.

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. Read More...
