A Roadmap for the Forensics Fundamentals Series

I've got some lofty goals for the collection articles about forensics and e-discovery. Right now I've got a lot of common tasks covered:

  • Collecting email from Outlook using PST files
  • Collecting email from Gmail
  • Extracting text messages and other data from an iOS devices
  • Collecting documents from a person's computer using WinZip

Next we'll turn to some other core concepts that you commonly encounter in the world of forensics and e-discovery like:

  • MD5 Hashes and Checksums
  • Forensic image file formats
  • Understanding File System and Document Metadata

After that, I'm open to suggestions. If you've got an idea for something you'd like to have covered, drop me a line.
