Cyber Security and Digital Forensics Training Resources

Summary of the research project

One of the critical training needs for First Responders and Digital Forensics Investigators is to be able to have digital evidence that is customized to their training needs and uniquely different to previous resources which can be forensically investigated, and evidence retrieved and analysed.

This requires the use of automation tools to take a wide range of base digital platforms Windows, Mac OSX and Linux and create digital evidence artefacts with different case scenario evidence. It is essential to have a wide base of material and many digital devices now are not just desktops or laptops but consumer devices or industrial IoT devices.

We need to be able to take existing platforms such as SecGen which generate resources for Cyber Security training and Capture the Flag tournaments and see what the delta’s are to be able to use the base platform to create appropriate forensic resources.
