  1. Why should we be teaching Linux Forensics? Paul Stephens

  2. Harmonisation of Computer Forensics Investigation Training

  3. Participants Include

  4. AGIS Courses Developed

  5. ISEC Developments (2008-2011) Vista Forensics

  6. Linux as a Forensic Tool • Initially run as a one week course • Following evaluations • Basics [online] – Week One • Forensic Features and Tools – Week Two • Currently being updated by a team of five

  7. Advanced Scripting • Currently in development • One week course to be run at Microsoft Copenhagen!

  8. Other Linux Forensics Courses GNU/Linux Forensics Data Recovery & Analysis ICT and Forensic Investigation Digital Forensics

  9. Why should we be teaching Linux Forensics?

  10. Why should we be teaching Linux Forensics? • Scripting will allow investigators to carry out: • Large scale investigations on unusual data sets • Automation for routine tasks • Integration of various standalone tools into one process • Will also equip the investigator with advanced knowledge beyond pre-provided software functionality • Projects • Open Source

  11. Some of the Linux Forensic Tools • LibEWF • dcfldd and rdd • The Sleuth Kit • Autopsy Forensic Browser/PTK • ophcrack • QEMU

  12. CCCU Forensic Lab Setup • Two PCs • Normal PC • Internet connection • ‘HazardNET’ PC • Students have BIOS/Administrator control • Network linked to Windows server running RIS and Linux SSH/SFTP server

  13. Teaching Materials (Basics) • Linux • http://www.ss64.com/bash/ • http://linuxcommand.org/ • Linux Forensics • http://www.linuxleo.com/ • Disk Images and other cool stuff • http://www.honeynet.org/ • Distributions • Debian/Ubuntu? • http://www.e-fense.com/helix/ • http://www.lnx4n6.be/

  14. Development of Teaching Materials • Download other peoples evidence files • Create the test images/network dumps/etc yourself • Takes a loooooooooooooooong time • Get someone else to create resources • Spec what you want and set it for your current students as an assessment/project • Report/presentation on the task

  15. Some Current Projects • AGIS/ISEC course developments • Analysis of the accuracy and usefulness of Linux Tools • Usability analysis of Autopsy/PTK • Presentation of computer-based evidence in an electronic format (MOD) • A triage toolkit for divisional examiners (Essex) • Using virtual technology in the presentation of digital evidence (Trading Standards)

  16. 3rd Annual International Conference on • Cybercrime Forensics Education and Training - CFET 2009 • First Announcement and Call for Papers • The conference will take place in the Powell Building at the North Holmes • Road campus of Canterbury Christ Church University on • 1st and 2nd September 2009. • The conference invites papers, practical workshop proposals, and • poster presentations including the following: • Development of cybercrime forensics as a new discipline • Hacking detection and prevention • Viruses and antivirus software • Commercial training in cybercrime forensics • Supporting police investigations • Defining educational programmes and their objectives • Ethical, Professional and legal issues • New software tools for cybercrime forensics • International cooperation to develop standards • Career pathways in cybercrime forensics • Network and mobile communication technologies • Cooperation of commercial and academic partners • Case studies in cybercrime forensics • Deadline for papers 1st May 2009. • Please contact Denis Edgar-Nevill [denis.edgar-nevill@canterbury.ac.uk] for details.
