A new set of software tools developed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) aims to make sure this digital evidence will hold up in court.
The software suite, referred to collectively as federated testing tools, is designed to help law enforcement and forensic practitioners with a critical early step in evidence collection: making a copy of the data from a seized electronic device. Because a suspect’s guilt or innocence can hang in the balance, both the prosecution and the defense must agree that the digital forensic process did not introduce any unseen errors into the data, and that the methods they are using work as expected.

My name is Mark Scanlon from University College Dublin. As [Owen] said, this paper is co-authored with a PhD student of mine and a colleague of mine in the school.
The point of this project is to try and make digital forensic challenges for a variety of different use cases. So to just give a quick overview of what we’re talking about, I’m going to talk about some existing techniques that are used for creating digital forensic challenges and talk a little bit more about the motivation behind the work that I’m presenting here, talk about some of the design considerations for the tool that we’ve developed, talk about EviPlant itself, and then go on and talk about some future work.
First and foremost, Digital Forensic Challenges – I’m sure there are a lot of academics in the room, a lot of people involved in training and education. So one thing that you’d be familiar with, with digital forensics education, is trying to create or curate challenges to give to a class.
