Nugget: A Digital Forensics Language

Vassil Roussev discusses Christopher Stelly's research at DFRWS EU 2018.

One of the long-standing conceptual problems in digital forensics is the dichotomy between the imperative for verifiable and reproducible forensic computations, and the lack of adequate mechanisms to accomplish these goals. With over thirty years of professional practice, investigator notes are still the main source of reproducibility information, and much of it is tied to the functions of specific, often proprietary, tools.

In this talk, Vassil Roussev presents discuss the design and implementation of a domain specific language (DSL) called nugget, which aims to enable the practical formal specification of digital forensic computations in a tool-agnostic fashion.
