Product/Market Life Cycle Analysis

  • The digital forensics lifecycle includes both the technical and legal aspects. The evidence demanded by a court of law need to be satisfied by the investigator using different technologies. The court requires specific data as the proof for cybercrimes and others. Understanding the required evidences, the investigator should analyze the process through which he will recover the data. Moreover, the essential amount and enough storage capacity needs to be checked.
  • Presenting the information in a court of law should ensure that nothing has been doctored or manipulated by any means. . For this, correct storage device with enough space and appropriate tools for recovery should be used. Along with the data made available, the time factor is vital. The efforts taken for data collection and time consumed is taken into consideration. Thus, the affecting factors need to be taken care of in the retrieval process. Obtaining and presenting the information efficiently depends upon the investigator’s knowledge.
  • After retrieving the data, reliability is checked. The original data and the imaged data should be the same. This originality is checked using the hash functions. The matching of hash function of original data and imaged data determines the authenticity. The variation occurs due to variety of formats used, collection of accuracy in email origin, network delay and other factors. If one fails to maintain reliability, the incorrect presentation in a court of law will not lead to the motive. Since a single event makes a mark on multiple systems, tracing the tampering of actual data becomes possible.
  • Once the reliable data is attained, reviewing becomes important so as to present it in the court of law. The format and content should be as expected by the court. Hard disk, compact flash and memory chips are some of the examples of storage devices. In the end, the representation of information should be made such that the lawyers, judges and other involved members should understand the evidences. Some of these may not have the requisite knowledge about the digital world and thus, care needs to be taken that the correct message is conveyed to them.
  • Finally, all these efforts need to be preserved for possible requirements in the future. It can be for the same case or some other similar case. Not all types of data can be stored in the repository, but the datasets which are of high importance, need to be saved in a proper format such that it stays intact for a long duration.
