Computer Forensics Research

Post Posted: Dec 01, 04 12:27

Hello all,

I have just joined the forum and need some help please.

I intend to undertake a PhD in Computer Forensics in the near future and I am currently doing some background research for my proposal. Could anyone tell me or point me in the direction of any good journals, online or hard copy which focus on Forensics (preferably free or cheap (ish)).

I am aware of Elseviers Digital Investigations buts it's a bit too expensive for me.

Many thanks in advance,
B

Well, the first thing I'd recommend is that you take a little more time and review your posts before hitting the "submit" button. If you want people to take you seriously, you have to be able to spell...and going to a *Forensics* forum and using the word "forensucs" is not a way to win friends and influence people.

I'm not entirely sure that you're going to find what you're looking for...of course, I may be incorrectly assuming that you've already done some searching of your own. After all, I'm sure Jamie can vouch for the fact that your question (almost verbatim) has been posted on this site and several others before. Seriously...this question gets posted on the Forensics list at SecurityFocus, here, and at other sites all the time.

I doubt that you're going to find any *good journals* that focus on Forensics, and are free.

Here are some sites to check:
www.geschonneck.com/se...ensic.html
www.fbi.gov/hq/lab/fsc.../index.htm

This next site includes links to conferences and presentation materials, and may be extremely helpful:
www.e-evidence.info/

Perhaps if you could narrow the search a bit...what are you interested in for your PhD dissertation? What school are you at, and where do you expect to defend your dissertation? If the school you're at has a computer forensics program (evidently they do, if you're getting your PhD), then you should be able to go to the school library and ask them to subscribe to the Elsevier journal. If not, perhaps your advisor can assist.

What projects is your advisor working on that you could dovetail your own research off of?

That's a little harsh, I think. I'm all for good spell checking but I think we can forgive the occasional slip of the finger...

SC Magazine is an IT security related publication that occasionally deals with forensic issues. I've noticed many of the law enforcement publications in the US doing articles on computer forensics and law enforcement, but most just cover the basics.

Good luck,

I am not one to easily take offence but as I correctly spelt all the words including Forensics in the body of the post, I think this is uncalled for. I hope no one else in this forum has any issues with taking me seriously and forgiving my finger for slipping

Right, let's get back on track. The bad news is that I'm not sure there is an affordable alternative to what Elsevier have done with Digital Investigation (if there is I'd love to hear about it). I do have a feeling they've priced that particular publication just a little too high, which is a pity. No doubt their beancounters would tell me otherwise.
