Forensic Science in an Evolving Digital World

Digital forensics is a discipline of forensic science that deals with the recovery, investigation, examination, and analysis of evidence found in digital devices. Although the field has its roots in law enforcement efforts to investigate crimes involving computers, its use in analyzing other digital artifacts has evolved. This seminar will introduce the field of digital forensics, its history, and the subdisciplines of digital forensics. We will discuss some of the research problems in the forensic investigation of databases, questioned digital documents, and other aspects of digital forensics.
