Test Images and Forensic Challenges
Computer Forensic Reference Data Sets (CFReDS)
The CFReDS site is a repository of reference sets/images of simulated digital evidence for examination. Some images are produced by NIST, often from the CFTT (tool testing) project, and some are contributed by other organizations.
A website of digital corpora for use in computer forensics research. Some of the corpora on this website are freely available, while others are only available to researchers under special arrangement.
Digital Forensics Tool Testing Images
File system and disk images from Brian Carrier for testing digital forensic analysis and acquisition tools.
This site is intended to assist members of the computer forensic community learn more about Linux and its potential as a forensic tool. Various practice images are available under the heading "Supplemental Files" in the left hand side menu.
Wireshark Sample Captures
A large number of sample packet captures to use with Wireshark.
Wireshark Study Guide Trace Files
Trace files referenced by Laura Chappell throughout the Wireshark Certified Network Analyst Study Guide.
Enron Email Dataset
This dataset contains data from about 150 users, mostly senior management of Enron, organized into folders. It contains a total of about 0.5M messages originally made public, and posted to the web, by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission during its investigation. After various corrections (notably by Melinda Gervasio at SRI) and redactions it is now made available by William W. Cohen at CMU.

Network Forensics Puzzle Contest
The Network Forensics Puzzle contest is written by Sherri Davidoff and Jonathan Ham with occasional guest authors.
2011 DC3 Digital Forensics Challenge
Approximately 25 different challenges ranging from basic forensics to advanced tool development. The challenges are single based challenges and are designed to be unique and separate from one another. The objectives of the Annual Digital Forensics Challenge are to establish relationships; resolve technological issues; and develop new tools, techniques, and methodologies for the digital forensic community.
UK Cyber Security Challenge
The Cyber Security Challenge is a series of national online games and competitions that will test the cyber security abilities of individuals and teams from every walk of life. It is designed to excite and inspire anyone considering a career in the cyber security industry and identify talented individuals capable of becoming part of the UK’s cyber security profession.
