Interview With Glen Dario Rodriguez And Fernando Molina, Researchers

Tuesday, November 21, 2017 (11:10:57)
Tell us a bit about your backgrounds and how you came to be interested in digital forensics.

Fernando: I work as a computer expert and teacher in the computer area. In my work experience, I have found that digital forensics is a pending issue. Additionally, there is the global phenomenon of continuous growth of cybercrime, the high number of trials where digital evidence is not admitted due to erroneous manipulation or technological change, as well as a personnal commitment to improve delivery of justice; those are factors that motivate a deeper study on techniques, processes and models that collaborate with digital forensics.

Glen: My original background is wireless communication research. I did my PhD on propagation of 3G mobile communications. An important issue in the wireless industry is security of communications. After a few years, I began to move slowly onto the wireless and network security area, protocols, etc. When Fernando began his PhD, he asked me to become his research advisor, and he proposed to research in the area of digital forensics and management of evidence. Then I clearly saw the need to address it and accepted his proposal.

Characterizing Loss Of Forensic Information Due To Abstraction Layers

Friday, November 17, 2017 (12:19:09)
Thomas Glanzmann discusses his research at DFRWS EU 2017.

Glanzmann: Characterizing loss of digital evidence due to abstraction layers. So what we did is we created a [formal] model mapping different layers and analyzing what gets lost due to abstraction layers.

Yeah, Felix Freiling is from the [FAU] and Hans P. Reiser is from the University of Passau. I’m self-employed, I work as a trainer [on-site] with IT infrastructure, areas of [virtualization, storage network], and backup. And also providing [web] environments. And I am in the process of becoming a PhD student.

This is our agenda for today. We introduce some charts and we talk about contributions, definitions, and identify the model in practice, and then we come to the conclusions.
