Abstract:

This effort describes a trusted mechanism for sharing computer forensics evidence among forensic examiners and others associated with determination of causes for Cyber Space Events. The process employed is described, as well as the unique solution identified. A prototype employing unique concepts is described. The solution employs a powerful and secure architecture, functioning within an open framework, employing strong security features, and easily adaptable to new Cyber-Forensic Software Tools. A key element of the solution relies on a Cyber Space Analogy to evidence bags which are sealed and tamper resistant. The Si-FI prototype demonstrator represents an advance in Cyber Forensic Technology.
