KIRAS Security Research



Study for digital forensics

Computers are nowadays indispensable tools in our professional and private lives, hence digital forensics are becoming increasingly important for investigations of any kind. People leave a plethora of digital traces in many different locations. The goal of this KIRAS study is to address essential questions concerning:

  • the existence of judicial guidelines and de facto implementation of standards for digital evidence,
  • the linkage of different data sources in order to increase the reliability of statements,
  • and the possible appliance of  the NIST Guide to Integrating Forensic Techniques into Incident Response (SP-800-86) in Austria.
