The first ever Sleuth Kit and Open Source Digital Forensics Conference will be held on June 9, 2010 in Chantilly, Virginia (USA) and feature talks by leading digital forensics tool developers. Participants can learn about using open source tools, how to integrate them into automated analysis systems, and join in open discussions about the strengths and weaknesses of existing tools. The conference will be of interest to existing open source users and to investigators who want to learn more about using open source tools.

Some of the scheduled talks include:
* Brian Carrier speaking about The Sleuth Kit (TSK) and its new features.
* Jamie Butler speaking about using TSK in the MANDIANT software.
* Dario Forte speaking about the PTK interface to TSK.
* Rob Joyce speaking about using TSK in the Mac Marshall software.
* Simson Garfinkel speaking about AFFLib.
* Harlan Carvey speaking about making time lines of system activity with open source tools.
"We always talked about the possibility of producing a print version, but to be honest, we're really surprised to be doing it so soon, however, we have to meet market demands, and people are asking about print versions all the time. We've been blown away by the demand. It means more work, but it will be worth it in the end", Tony said.

For more information about the conference, visit  http://www.basistech.com/conference/2010/digital-forensics-overview.html
 
Program details and online registration will be available soon. Registration will be free to government employees. The conference is being held in conjunction with the Basis Technology Government Users Conference.

Read more

 






As part of the Training & Education theme for Issue 5 Digital Forensics Magazine is carrying out a global survey. The survey asks digital forensic practitioners around the world to complete the survey with a view to ascertain the level of qualifications held.

The survey investigates the thoughts of practitioners on what they believe are the core competencies required of a digital forensics practitioner. They are also asking what knowledge would be required if there were practitioners graded at basic, intermediate and advanced levels.

Tony Campbell, one of the DFM publishing team said, “By asking the practitioners opinions with regard to international standards on training we hope to inform the debate going on in a number of forums on this topic.

The survey will be open over the next 3 months and we are encouraging all parties with a vested interest in the subject to take the survey to help us all understand the current status of training and education in Digital Forensics and shape the future. This is your profession, help us inform and guide those that are setting standards and making decisions about our profession. “

Readers are urged to take the 3 minute survey today at www.surveymonkey.com/s/dfm to make sure their thoughts and opinions are captured.

A summary of the results will be released in forthcoming monthly newsletters available to Digital Forensics Magazine newsletter subscribers, and the main findings will form the basis of an article in the main magazine published later this year.
