In digital forensics we see a lot of research that takes place outside the boundaries of conferences and academic research projects. Often someone will conduct a piece of research that’s relevant to their present needs, and might post about it on social media or on their personal blog, but although these can be a handy source of information, it also can be hard to find what you’re looking for and work out whether the new technique or product you are looking at is reliable and robust.
Enter DFIR Review, a new initiative which responds to the need for a focal point for up-to-date community-reviewed applied research and testing in digital forensics and incident response. DFIR Review concentrates on targeted studies of specific devices, digital traces, analysis methods, and criminal activities to help digital forensic practitioners deal with real-world issues.
