OSDFCon 2010 

The Sleuth Kit and Open Source Digital Forensics Conference on June 9, 2010 has concluded. Thanks to all speakers and attendees!

For the details, see Program and Abstracts.


What is The Sleuth Kit?

The Sleuth Kit is an open source project that started over 9 years ago and has seen thousands of downloads for each release. It is a library and a set of command line tools for analyzing and recovering data from hard drives. In addition to being used as a stand-alone tool, it has been incorporated into several commercial, open source, and government systems.

Join your fellow digital forensics and media exploitation colleagues at the first conference dedicated to using The Sleuth Kit and open source digital forensics tools. Whether you currently use open source digital forensics tools or just want to learn more about them, this event is a unique opportunity to network with colleagues and hear from leading open source developers. Scheduled to speak are Brian Carrier (author of “The Sleuth Kit”), Harlan Carvey, Simson Garfinkel, Cory Altheide, Jamie Butler, Dario Forte, Rob Joyce, and others.

Learn how open source forensics tools can be used to solve the challenges of large data sets from different environments. Join in open, frank round table discussions about the strengths and weaknesses of existing open source tools: What works? What doesn’t? What functionality is needed?

  • Digital forensics examiners who want to learn more about using open source tools.
  • Digital forensics examiners who want to meet colleagues who also use open source tools.
  • System integrators that develop automated systems to process hard drives and removable media.
  • Developers who want to get involved with open source forensics tools.
