Educational resources for teaching computer forensics
One of the most difficult things for new investigators is finding sample cases to work on.
- The http://digitalcorpora.org/ website has more than 5 terabytes of realistic computer forensics data, including disk images, memory dumps, and packet captures. Also available are instructor's packets and answer keys.
- The HoneyNet Project has several forensics challenges online. These include the "Scan of Month", "The Reverse Challenge," and "The Forensic Challenge." The last one asked entrants to examine a complete RedHat Linux system for information. All of these challenges include complete solutions.
