Technical Definition: Digital Forensics
“Tools and techniques used to recover, preserve, and examine digital evidence on or transmitted by digital devices.”
Definition for the Masses
“Deleted” files, on almost any kind of digital storage media, are almost never completely “gone”.
Who Needs It?
 Law enforcement officials
 Prosecution of crimes which involve computers or other digital devices.
 Defending the innocent & Prosecuting the guilty.
 Security agencies (e.g. Secret Service, CIA, FBI, NSA)
 Anti-terrorism efforts.
 Digital espionage.
 General
 Employee misconduct in corporate cases.
 For accidental deletion or malicious deletion of data by a user (or a program).
 Military
 Prosecution of internal computer-related crimes.

 Insurance Companies
Evidence discovered on computer can be used to mollify costs (fraud in accident, arson & worker’s compensation cases etc.)
Digital Forensics-Possibilities & Limitations
 What’s possible?
 Recovery of deleted data.
 Discovery of when files were modified, created, deleted, organized etc.
 Can determine which storage devices were attached to a specific computer.
 Which applications were installed, even if they were uninstalled by the user.
 Which web sites a user visited…
 What’s not…
 If digital media is completely (physically) destroyed, recovery is impossible.
 If digital media is securely overwritten, recovery is very, very complicated, or practically impossible.
A Digital Computer Forensics investigation, involves four major steps
 Acquisition
Obtaining the original evidence.
 Preservation
Protecting the original evidence.
 Analysis
Finding relevant evidence.
 Presentation
Presenting the evidence in court.
Traditional: Where’s the evidence?
 Undeleted files
 Deleted files
 Windows registry
 Print spool files
 Hibernation files
 Temp files (all those .TMP files!)
 Slack space
 Swap files
 Browser caches
 Alternate or “hidden” partitions
 On a variety of removable media (floppies, ZIP, Jazz, tapes, …)
Sources of Digital Evidence
 Computers
 Email
 Digital images
 Documents
 Spreadsheets
 Chat logs
 Illegally copied software or other copyrighted material
 Wireless telephones
 Numbers called
 Incoming calls
 Voice mail access numbers
 Email addresses
 Call forwarding numbers

 PDAs/Smart Phones
 Above, plus contacts, maps, pictures, passwords, documents, …
 Landline Telephones/Answering machines
 Incoming/outgoing messages
 Numbers called
 Incoming call info
 Access codes for voice mail systems
 Contact lists
 Copiers
 Especially digital copiers, which may store entire copy jobs.
 “Deletion” Fallacies
 “I deleted, the file, it’s gone.”
 Deleted files are recoverable using digital forensics tools.
 “I changed the name of the file, now no one will find it”
 Digital forensics tools immediately identify files based on content—names don’t matter at all.
 “I formatted the drive”
 This destroys almost nothing.
 “Deletion” Fallacies
 “I cut the floppy into little pieces- Media Mutilation ”
 At this point, it’s a question of how important it is to recover the data, because it is harder to recover the data.
 “I use only web-based email”
 Some email fragments are still present locally.
 Tools of Digital Forensics
 Encase –
includes tools for data acquisition, file recovery, indexing/search and file parsing.
 Forensic Toolkit –
scans a hard drive looking for various information.
 PTK Forensics –
runs as a GUI interface for The Sleuth Kit, acquiring and indexing digital media for investigation.

 Tools of Digital Forensics
 The Sleuth Kit –
provides a large number of specialized command-line based utilities.
 The Coroner’s Toolkit –
analysis of data recovery from computer disasters.
 Computer Online Forensic Evidence Extractor (COFEE) –
automated forensic tool during a live analysis.
Zacarias Moussaoui
 20th hijacker in the 9/11 (2001) terrorist
attacks against the U.S.
 His laptop, 4 computers, and several email accounts ( were searched for e-evidence.
 FBI discovered that the 19 hijackers used Kinko's computers in various cities to gain access to the Internet to plan 9/11.
Digital Forensics tools found immense application in investigating
various digital media used in Mumbai Terror attack 26/11.
Future of Digital Forensics
 Digital forensics is now part of criminal investigations.
 Crimes & methods to hide crimes are becoming more sophisticated.
 Digital forensics will be in demand for as long as there are criminals and misbehaving people.
 Will attract students and law professionals who need to update their skills.
 Digital Forensics has gained an important place in criminal investigations pertaining to digital media. Increasing number of computer crime means increasing demand for digital forensics services .
 Today, everyone is exposed to potential attacks and has a responsibility to its network neighbors to minimize their own vulnerabilities in an effort to provide a more secure and stable network.
 The digital forensic needs and challenges can be accomplished only with the cooperation of the private, public, and international sectors.
