Windows Forensic Analysis: DVD Toolkit

Front Cover
Syngress Pub., 2007 - Computers - 348 pages
The only book available on the market that addresses and discusses in-depth forensic analysis of Windows systems. Windows Forensic Analysis DVD Toolkit takes the reader to a whole new, undiscovered level of forensic analysis for Windows systems, providing unique information and resources not available anywhere else. This book covers both live and post-mortem response collection and analysis methodologies, addressing material that is applicable to law enforcement, the federal government, students, and consultants. This book also brings this material to the doorstep of system administrators, who are often the front line troops when an incident occurs, but due to staffing and budgets do not have the necessary knowledge to effectively respond. The companion DVD for the book contains significant, unique materials (movies, spreadsheet, code, etc.) not available any place else, as they were created by the author.

About the author (2007)

Harlan Carvey developed an interest in computer security while in the military. After leaving active duty, he began working in the area of penetration testing and vulnerability assessments, leading teams of engineers, and developing his own tools to optimize his ability to collect and analyze data. As most clients employed Windows to some degree, Harlan began to see a disparity in knowledge and support for these operating systems, and decided to seize the opportunity and focus on Windows as an area of interest and research. This led him to address topics in incident response and forensic analysis, and to his position as a forensic analyst. Harlan has been a prolific author and presenter, beginning with the Usenix LISA-NT conference in 2000. He has also presented at Black Hat, DefCon 9, MISTI, and HTCIA/GMU conferences. Harlan has had articles published in the Information Security Bulletin as well as on the SecurityFocus web site, and is the author of Windows Forensics and Incident Recovery.
