Forensic resources

Post Posted: Dec 13, 05 17:08

All,

I'd like to get an idea of the following:

1. What other forensic resources do you use? Are there any technically-oriented listservs or groups that you frequent?

2. What technically-oriented web sites do you go to?

3. What technically-oriented blogs do you have bookmarked and/or visit regularly?

4. Books.

Thanks,

Harlan

I am very much learning, and have only recently found this site.

The other site I visit frequently though is Computer Forensics World at:
www.computerforensicsworld.com

As a learner I also recently bought a starter kit which I fend useful, called the Computer Forensics Toolkit: computer-forensics.pri...ources.org

I have submitted both to the links area, and suggest the sites listed by arashiryu are submitted too.

I hope this helps.

Don't forget code oriented sites like:
www.codeproject.com
www.codeguru.com
www.oreillynet.com/
sourceforge.net/

for example, code project has this article:
www.codeproject.com/sy...Detect.asp
where the author explains how a program can tell if it is being run inside of vmware or virtualpc.

browsing or searching through sourceforge often helps because you can look at source code. IExtract is the last one i was taking a look at to try to learn of other ways to get metadata and to see what other file formats they covered.

i'm interested in foreign sources as well. so far a lot of stuff i've seen tends to be US centric, which is cool, but that makes me wonder if foreign companies and law enforcement are relying on US lead in this area, or are they developing their own expertise in the field?
