Post Posted: Nov 09, 07 00:16


I am looking to signup for InfoSec Institute: Computer Forensics week long traing course. I have read one comment on here from one person who has take the course. I was wondering if anyone else has any feedback on this training institution.

It is good training with several good labs. FYI though. If you are going to sit for the CHFI v3, they seems to have added quite a bit of incident response or network forensics content to the test from v2.

Know what some of the basic hacker attacks are:
• SQL injection
• Cross Site Scripting (XSS)
• Variable manipulation attacks
• Buffer overflow (nops or no-ops sled)
• Honeypots

Know the location of common web server logs:
• Exchange
• Apache

Know the basics and features of:
• EnCase
• Paraben

There is still a LOT of local forensic specific questions.
• Email headers
• Windows artifacts
• File systems

There is still a section on laws:
• USC (focusing on cyber crime and IP)
• Civil Rights
• Australia child porn

Beef up on DD. There are more DD syntax specific questions regarding imaging and restoring.

The changes make the CHFI a more rounded certification and harder then the other disk forensic certifications. It is a good idea to come in with the mindset of investigating not only the hard drives, but the server logs as well. System administration, networking or ethical hacking experience is very helpful for this exam.
