Security & Forensic Tools

The field of digital forensics and cybercrime investigation is expanding rapidly. The ability to develop software solutions to handle problems in these areas is of paramount importance in the continued success of these techniques in court proceedings. This course examines the means by which forensic tools are developed. Students will progress from basic programming, to the development of large-scale forensic solutions. As the ultimate aim of every case is its successful prosecution in a courtroom, students will see how the forensic tools are tested and validated using scientific methodologies, thus ensuring that any evidence acquired through the use of these tools will be admissible in court.
