Abstract:

This paper was created to complement a helix tutorial that was created as an introduction into the world of forensics. For someone who would like to get started practicing computer forensics it might be a little overwhelming. There are many different tools, and techniques. Each tool will provide different capabilities and will affect the suspect system differently. Some tools can be very expensive, but there are many tools available which are free and fairly complete. The Helix tool is very robust and free of charge. This paper was created to complement a helix tutorial that was created as an introduction into the world of forensics. For someone who would like to get started practicing computer forensics it might be a little overwhelming. There are many different tools, and techniques. Each tool will provide different capabilities and will affect the suspect system differently. Some tools can be very expensive, but there are many tools available which are free and fairly complete. The Helix tool is very robust and free of charge. The tutorial consists of a series of laboratories. Each of the laboratories will cover a different functionality provided by the Helix tool, guiding the reader in his discovery process. The goal is to provide a simple introduction into the world of forensics and to provide the reader with not just the theory but the hands on experience that every beginner is sure to need.
