    I write techno thrillers so I'm always looking for new ways to crack the tangled online lives of popular fictional characters a blueprint for the next Digital Fortress In the case of Altheide and Carvey's Digital Forensics with Open Source Tools Elsevier 2011 I'll have to keep looking but I wasn't disappointed It delves into the eually obfuscated world of computer malfunctions In plain English as opposed to the acronyms rampant in the geek world than the government it details how to investigate a variety of problems on a variety of systems to find out what went wrong and how to fix it using open source tools The 'fix it' part is the digital forensics which the authors define as the use of scientifically derived and proven methods toward the preservation collection validation identification analysis interpretation documentation and presentation of digital evidence derived from digital sources for the purpose of reconstruction of events found to be criminal Simple enough though for the purposes of this review I truncated the original 54 word definition by half In full disclosure the book includes many neologistic words like 'MinGW' 'RAID' 'installing interpreter's 'perl python and ruby' because the authors admit their intended audience is new forensic practitioners or experienced ones interested in delving into open source tools Those weird words are their language but the authors do a good enough job defining the complicated terms that beginners will want this book in their library It summarizes the wide variety of platforms out there Linux Windows MacOS and and which open source products can best be used to address what forensic problemsThe authors are Cory Altheide and Harland Carvey Mr Altheide has a robust background performing end to end forensic investigation you can see what he's up to on his blog even ask uestions about the book if this review hasn't covered enough I have to tell you after browsing his posts his tweets and his LinkedIn profile what this guy doesn't know about digital forensics no one does Likewise with Harlan Carvey His blog goes much deeper than my personal knowledge base and itemizes enough incident responses that it's clear Mr Carvey knows of which he speaksEven if you aren't a nerdy geek who sits in front of a computer 247 you will come away from this book impressed with the creativity and ingenuity of today's computer minds Man's survival has always been about using the brain stretching those synapses thinking not only outside the box but into the next Some say American education is in trouble but if it turns out problem solvers like these two we're in good shapeJacui Murray is the editor of a technology curriculum for K fifth grade and creator of two technology training books for middle school She is the author of Building a Midshipman the story of her daughter’s journey from high school to United States Naval Academy midshipman She is webmaster for five blogs an Vine Voice book reviewer a columnist for Examinercom and a weekly contributor to Write Anything and Technology in Education Currently she’s working on a techno thriller that should be ready this summer Contact Jacui at her writing office or her tech lab Ask a Tech Teacher

    Overall this is an excellent book I am using this as one of the textbooks along with File System Forensic Analysis by Brian Carrier to teach an undergraduate course on Computer Forensics I am impressed with this book and its content The authors do a great job explaining a variety of tools that help forensicators analyze digital evidence My only complaint is that some of the tools don't uite work as indicated in the text and sometimes the installation instructions don't work as outlined But this is all part of the game and of using Linux in general Overall it's an excellent book

    Good book for beginners focused on how with free and OSS tools but still explaining things where necessaryShort concise and to the point it's packing a lot of useful information in a few pages making it a uick and useful read
