Hi Honneykhad,

Allthough maybe not entirely what you are looking for, check out Brian Carrier's thesis "A Hypothesis-Based Approach to Digital Forensic Investigations".

Keep in mind that [ https: / / w w w ] was ommited due to board restrictions.

Cheers,


Chris

Hi Honetkhad,

Could you then shed some light on what you are looking for when you say "a project specification for computer forensic technology"?

Regardless if it is a homework assignment, specifics are always welcome when requesting other people's help/advice.

Cheers.

Hi again,

Specification is a guide that will help an engineer or a developer or descibe an implementation and how to meet the objectives.

In my own case, most of the software are already in the market and the user requirements are already stated by the software developer. I an not testing any software. I want to use those one that are in the market e.g EnCASE E.T.C What is confusing about this specification is that I do not know what I will based my on project specification and requrement on.

There are different types (!) user requiement (II) system requirement (iii) functional requirement (iV) functional specification (V) Design specification
(vi)technical specification.

In case of forensic toolkits how will i write the requirements for the forensic investigators as a forensic investigator.

many thanks
Honneykhad

Seems to me that you have a really good grasp on what you need to write. I would assume that is because the assignment was clearly specified. I have never been one to do another persons "homework", so I have no real suggestions for you. If you get other people to give you the answers all of the time now, who is going to give you the answers when you are examining a hard drive for CP?

The investigation itself is Computer forensics. The tools we use are simply tools to accomplish the investigation. For instance, you do not define a carpenter by his hammer.
There is much more to computer forensics than just examining a hard drive. The investigation begins when the report is taken saying that a crime has been comitted. You need to start there. If any of the steps are missed during the investigation, your case is gone.
