Linux Forensics and Autopsy

I am currently researching and writing a report on Linux forensics investigation techniques and tools. I have had a infatuation with Linux for a few years now and am glad that I can finally merge my major with a hobby. For this report I am researching multiple open source forensics tools that would help in investigations and TSK (The Sleuth Kit) was one of the major highlights of my research. One of the key components of TSK is the Autopsy forensics browser, and as they just released their beta for 3.0 I decided that in addition to my basic overview for the report I would also do a review of the Autopsy beta. I hope to have an outline and basic review up in the next few days so check in soon to see the updates.

Welcome everyone to my blog for computer forensics and related topics. I am currently a student at Champlain College pursuing a BA in computer forensics and work as a forensics intern at the Leahy Center for Digital Investigations in Burlington VT.

The goal for this blog is to provide information relevant to the the fields of computer forensics, computer security, networking, and Linux. I am very interested in many fields of computers and am hoping to pass on some of that interest on to a wider audience.

My hope is to reach out to those in computer related industries and inspire them to learn new topics in and outside their field.
