An Advanced Educational Tool for Digital Forensic Engineering
Keywords:cloud computing, cyber forensic investigations, digital forensic, dynamic forensics training, education, forensic tool, training environment.
This paper presents a novel approach to education in the area of digital forensics based on a multi-platform cloud-computer infrastructure and an innovative computer based tool. The tool is installed and available through the cloud-based infrastructure of the Dynamic Forensic Education Alliance. Cloud computing provides an efficient mechanism for a wide range of services that offer real-life environments for teaching and training cybersecurity and digital forensics. The cloud-based infrastructure, the virtualized environment and the developed educational tool enable the construction of a dynamic e-learning environment making the training very close to reality and to real-life situations. The paper presents the Dynamic Forensic Digital tool named EduFors and describes the different levels of college and university education where the tool is introduced and used in the training of future investigators of cybercrime events.
