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 861 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.

Sleuth Kit and Open Source Digital Forensics Conference

The first ever Sleuth Kit and Open Source Digital Forensics Conference will be held on June 9, 2010 in Chantilly, Virginia (USA) and feature talks by leading digital forensics tool developers. Participants can learn about using open source tools, how to integrate them into automated analysis systems, and join in open discussions about the strengths and weaknesses of existing tools. The conference will be of interest to existing open source users and to investigators who want to learn more about using open source tools.

Some of the scheduled talks include:

  • Brian Carrier speaking about The Sleuth Kit (TSK) and its new features.
  • Jamie Butler speaking about using TSK in the MANDIANT software.
  • Dario Forte speaking about the PTK interface to TSK.
  • Rob Joyce speaking about using TSK in the Mac Marshall software.
  • Simson Garfinkel speaking about AFFLib.
  • Harlan Carvey speaking about making time lines of system activity with open source tools.

Program details and online registration will be available soon. Registration will be free to government employees. The conference is being held in conjunction with the Basis Technology Government Users Conference.
