Too Long; Didn't Read

Digital Forensics deals with the recovery and investigation of digital media often in relation to computer crimes. The digital forensics market is expected to grow to USD 9.68 billion by 2022. Using the Sleuth Kit, we’ll look at an example scenario on how to acquire an image (that can be used as evidence in a court of law) and then perform a simple data reconstruction using the open-source toolkit. We can then create a bit-by-bit image of the hard drive, and generate an MD5 checksum of the image.
