An empirical study on current models for reasoning about digital evidence

The forensic process relies on the scientific method to scrutinize recovered evidence that either supports or negates an investigative hypothesis. Currently, analysis of digital evidence remains highly subjective to the forensic practitioner. Digital forensics is in need of a deterministic approach to obtain the most judicious conclusions from evidence. The objective of this paper is to examine current methods of digital evidence analysis. It describes the mechanisms for which these processes may be carried out, and discusses the key obstacles presented by each. Lastly, it concludes with suggestions for further improvement of the digital forensic process as a whole.
