Titel / Title: Digital Evidence with Emphasis on Time
Abstrakt Abstract:

Computer Forensics is mainly about investigating crimes where computers has been involved. There are many tools available to aid the investigator with this task. We have created a prototype of a completely new type of tool where all evidences are indexed by its time variable and plotted on a timeline. We believed that this way would make it easier and more intuitive to find coherent evidence and would make it faster to work with for the investigator. We have performed a user test where a group of people has evaluated our prototype tool against a modern commercial computer forensic tool and the results of this test are
much better than we expected. The results show that users completed the task much faster and that the results were more correct. They also experienced that the prototype were more intuitive to use and that it was easier to find evidence that was coherent in time.
