Next-Generation Digital Forensic Analysis

Imani Palmer - Illinois Trust Institute

Mar 07, 2018


The progress of digital forensics research was initially driven by practitioners. With the majority of the tools and methodologies being developed reactively rather than as the result of a research. I explore the potential of incorporating digital forensics into computer science research. The potential is highlighted in the design and implementation of a prototype called Sherlock. Sherlock is an open-source analysis toolkit that established computer science theories to aid in the analysis of computer forensics. We also start a discussion on the potential of other computer science methods impact on digital forensics.

About the Speaker

I'm a research programmer at the Illinois Trust Institue (ITI). Where I explore various artificial intelligence techniques to detect intrusions in cyber-physical systems. I am also a Ph.D. Candidate at UIUC, advised by Roy Campbell and a member of the Systems Research Group (SRG). My research interests lie at the intersection of security and data analysis.

Unless otherwise noted, the security seminar is held on Wednesdays at 4:30P.M. STEW G52, West Lafayette Campus. More information...
