Digital forensics : case studies
Digital Forensics is a branch of forensic science concerned with the use of digital information produced, stored and transmitted by computers as source of evidence in investigations and legal proceedings. Computer fraud and digital crimes are growing day by day. Fortunately though, the vast majority of computer activities leave definite traces, allowing investigators to obtain essential evidence, solve criminal cases and prevent crimes. Digital forensics has existed for as long as computers have stored data that could be used as evidence. For many years, forensics investigation was performed primarily by government agencies, but has become common in the commercial sector over the past several years. The first chapter of this thesis provides a brief overview of digital and mobile forensics. The second chapter refers to computer crime and the third chapter is about legislation concerning digital forensics. The fourth chapter is about Computer Security Incident Response Team. The chapters five and six refer to forensic methodologies and available tools. Finally, the chapter seven contains actual case scenarios using digital forensics methodologies and tools.
