Digital Forensics Techniques for Weapons Systems

Course Description

Take a systematic approach. In Digital Forensics and Weapons Systems, learners explore the forensic investigation of the combination of traditional workstations, embedded systems, networks, and system busses that constitute the modern-day-weapons system. The course reviews the similarities and differences between commodity PCs and embedded systems. Learners gain knowledge of a wide variety of forensic evidence data sources from all classes of systems, as well methods of data acquisition, evidence extraction, and analysis using a wide variety of tools (both commercial and open-source).
