I wanted take this opportunity to thank everyone who attended our presentation, "Using Hashing to Improve Volatile Memory Forensic Analysis", at the American Academy of Forensic Sciences 60th Annual Meeting on February 21, 2008 Washington, D.C.. This was joint work with my colleague Blake Matheny and Doug White from the National Institute of Standards and Technology, NIST. The American Academy of Forensic Sciences does a lot of great work furthering the application of science and law. I'm glad to see their renewed interest in the area of digital forensic sciences. In particular, I was encouraged that our peers in the forensic sciences community were able recognize the importance of volatile memory analysis to the future of digital investigations. I believe this is an extremely important step!
I also wanted to take this opportunity to thank our friends at NIST, especially Doug White and John Tebbutt, for all their help with this research. With their help, we are creating a standard reference data set to support the needs of the growing community of volatile memory analysts. A special thanks also goes to Jide for all his help and thoughtful discussions!
The slides from the AAFS presentation are now available.
