Updated to include the most current events and information on cyberterrorism, the second edition of Computer Forensics: Cybercriminals, Laws, and Evidence continues to balance technicality and legal analysis as it enters into the world of cybercrime by exploring what it is, how it is investigated, and the regulatory laws around the collection and use of electronic evidence. Students are introduced to the technology involved in computer forensic investigations and the technical and legal difficulties involved in searching, extracting, maintaining, and storing electronic evidence, while simultaneously looking at the legal implications of such investigations and the rules of legal procedure relevant to electronic evidence. Significant and current computer forensic developments are examined, as well as the implications for a variety of fields including computer science, security, criminology, law, public policy, and administration.

Every computer crime leaves tracks–you just have to know where to find them. This book shows you how to collect and analyze the digital evidence left behind in a digital crime scene. Computers have always been susceptible to unwanted intrusions, but as the sophistication of computer technology increases so does the need to anticipate, and safeguard against, a corresponding rise in computer-related criminal activity. Computer forensics, the newest branch of computer security, focuses on the aftermath of a computer security incident. The goal of computer forensics is to conduct a structured investigation to determine exactly what happened, who was responsible, and to perform the investigation in such a way that the results are useful in a criminal proceeding. Written by two experts in digital investigation, Computer Forensics provides extensive information on how to handle the computer as evidence. Kruse and Heiser walk the reader through the complete forensics process–from the initial collection of evidence through the final report. Topics include an overview of the forensic relevance of encryption, the examination of digital evidence for clues, and the most effective way to present your evidence and conclusions in court. Unique forensic issues associated with both the Unix and the Windows NT/2000 operating systems are thoroughly covered. This book provides a detailed methodology for collecting, preserving, and effectively using evidence by addressing the three A's of computer forensics: Acquire the evidence without altering or damaging the original data. Authenticate that your recorded evidence is the same as the original seized data. Analyze the data without modifying the recovered data. Computer Forensics is written for everyone who is responsible for investigating digital criminal incidents or who may be interested in the techniques that such investigators use. It is equally helpful to those investigating hacked web servers, and those who are investigating the source of illegal pornography.

Part 1 Multimedia Evidence Handling includes a discussion on the terminology, real-world requirements, standards, legal aspects and technical challenges regarding multimedia evidence which concern forensics examiners and practitioners in law enforcement and digital forensics/e-discovery industry. It will highlight key differences between computer forensics and multimedia forensics, and the new technical challenges raised from such differences. Part 2 Digital Evidence Extraction bridges digital forensics and multimedia forensics by focusing on extraction of two classes of evidence: 1) non-multimedia evidence that can be extracted from multimedia data via a multimedia processing and analysis process, 2) multimedia evidence that are extracted or enhanced via non-multimedia forensic approaches (e.g. by using traditional computer forensic techniques and tools). Part 3 Multimedia Device and Source Forensics focuses on two main topics: digital forensics of multimedia devices and multimedia source identification. The first topic covers available techniques and tools of analysing multimedia devices to recover different types of evidence, and the second topic is about determining the source of a multimedia artefact (a digital or printed multimedia document). Multimedia devices covered include digital cameras/camcorders, audio recorders and players, scanners, printers. Part 4 Multimedia Content Forensics focuses on forensic analysis and identification of multimedia data which is a core area in the multimedia forensic field. Chapters in this part are about pure digital data, but many techniques are based on physical mechanisms that are involved in the generation of the digital data. Some techniques are also based on multimedia device/source identification from the third part, e.g. image forgery may be detected by exposing clues about mismatch of detected sources of different regions of the same image.
