February’s research in digital forensics isn’t just about the papers presented at the American Academy of Forensic Sciences (AAFS)’ annual meeting, or those published in the various journals. Last month also saw new research opportunities, either for an impact study … Read more
January was a somewhat light month in the way of digital forensics research publication, though the introduction of an Asia-Pacific (APAC) installment of the Digital Forensics Research Workshop (DFRWS) conference more than made up for it. This month we feature … Read more
Digital forensics research often depends on casework: specific problems with a device, operating system, app, or artifact that a forensic examiner needs to solve.
That isn’t always the case, though. Sometimes the problem has a broader scope, or the examiner … Read more
The end of 2020 could not come fast enough for most of us, and yet, as the year wound down, some things — such as the digital forensics research recapped in this article — were worth slowing down for. This … Read more
One of the most interesting and important things about digital forensics research is the way legal, cultural, and operational landscapes in different countries inform and even drive the research. In other words, digital technology doesn’t exist in a vacuum, even … Read more
This month’s academic research reflects two aspects of the changing digital forensics industry: new ways to think not just about digital artifacts, but also about broader investigative processes — including interagency cooperation.
This round-up article includes three open-access articles from … Read more
