Abstract
This paper is intended for educators, prospective informatics students, current informatics students, and anyone interested in building a Digital Forensics Tool – a Digital Forensics Workstation (DFW) for hands-on research. Although building a Digital Forensics Workstation may seem daunting, it has been built with the student researcher in mind so that anyone interested may take part in a Digital Forensics Investigation using real tools that solve everyday crimes. This paper aims to reveal the backstory to the decisions made involving a custom built computer, software choices, use of software, a set of twelve weeks of lesson plans, and a custom built website to detail the information. Central to the project is the Digital Forensics Workstation that will engage students in real life scenarios to discover what digital forensics is. The work is presented so that it can be easily adopted by interested student clubs, instructors and high school teachers.
