A DFI News double feature

We were pleased and honored in December when Digital Forensics Investigator (DFI) News opted to give two of Todd’s articles top billing on its site.

The articles, a two-part series, addressed whether collection of electronic evidence from the Internet is feasible. Some say no; obviously, we say yes!

In Part I, Todd drew from his 2007 white paper, “Collecting Legally Defensible Online Evidence,” to discuss the need for and development of a standard methodology for Internet evidence collection. In Part II, he addressed the application of that methodology specifically to “cloud” computing.

The cloud does present different challenges to evidence collection than do conventional Internet sources. But that doesn’t mean evidence collection from the cloud is impossible.

Read Part I here and Part II here. And please be sure to come back and tell us what you think. Do you agree? Disagree? Have you encountered the need for Internet evidence collection methodology… or investigative issues specific to the cloud? Comments are open!
