Forensics in the Amazon Cloud – EC2

Businesses of all sizes seem to be moving at least some operations to the cloud. It’s only a matter of time before you get a phone call asking you to conduct some kind of cloud forensics and/or incident response.

Automating Data Reduction via Whitelists

I read a blog post by Boe Prox while sitting on the beach in Cebu this past weekend, which oddly enough is the same guy I used to work with about 6+ years ago when I was working for BAE Systems back in Nebraska. Small world, eh? In either case here is the post: Write to an […]

Browser Artifact Recovery Forensic Framework – BARFF

Hello all, I wanted to take a few minutes and let you know that I am releasing some code I have been working on over the past couple weeks. I blogged awhile back about how I wanted to learn more about Python while also learning about digital forensics. Well, I finally got around to it […]
