This is the Forensics Wiki, devoted to information about digital forensics. We are just getting started, but still encourage you to browse the site and contribute whatever information you have available. We currently list a total of 954 pages.

Much of computer forensics is focused on the tools and techniques used by investigators, but there are also a number of important papers, people, and organizations involved. Many of those organizations sponsor conferences throughout the year and around the world. You may also wish to examine the popular journals and some special reports.
