Dealing with computerised evidence

Tuesday, May 30, 2006 (15:18:13)
The overriding principle concerning all phases of seizing and processing electronic evidence i.e. seized computers, disks and other media, should be never to alter the evidence from its original state. This should ensure its admissibility in court or other legal proceedings. The processing officer should carefully document every step taken while processing the electronic evidence. All seized computer hard disks, diskettes or other media should be "write protected" because electronic media that has been "write protected" cannot be altered or erased either intentionally or accidentally. A "bit-stream" identical copy of all hard drives, diskettes or other media must be made prior to any processing...

Identity theft and other computer crimes are overwhelming police departments in many of Wisconsin's smaller towns and villages. They simply don't have the resources to go after high-tech criminals.

Binghamton University research links digital images and cameras

Monday, May 22, 2006 (19:09:44)
CPers will soon have a harder time escaping prosecution thanks to a stunning new technology in development at Binghamton University, State University of New York, that can reliably link digital images to the camera with which they were taken, in much the same way that tell-tale scratches are used by forensic examiners to link bullets to the gun that fired them...

"Imagine that someone has stabbed Pamela Mills-Senn in her apartment," says Currie, OIC of the technological crime branch of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). "One of her neighbors has come over and found her dead and calls the police. You might think, 'this has nothing to do with computers'. Wrong.
