Editorial Reviews

Review

Reviews for the previous edition: "Digital Evidence and Computer Crime provides an introduction to many concepts from computer science about networks, and in particular the Internet. It details the application of forensic science principles to the location, recovery, and examination of digital evidence...Each chapter in the book is fully supported by case examples to clarify particular points made. It also contains many references to specialized literature and on-line resources as well as a helpful glossary of terms...this book can be recommended mainly for people looking to expand their general knowledge and awareness of computer crime and the process of computer crime investigation, particularly those just entering the field of digital forensics." --Dr. L.W. Russell, Science & Justice "Many, perhaps most, of the police, lawyers or systems administrators and forensic scientists involved in investigation or prosecution of computer-related crimes do not know the answer to these questions [of digital evidence handling]. This book will tell them. It should, of course, be equally interesting to lawyers with the task of defending alleged computer criminals." --Robert L Dunne, JD, The Center for Internet Studies, Yale University, USA "...an excellent book that details the elements of digital crime. Author Eoghan Casey does a superb job of applying forensic science to computers. The information presented here is critical to a diverse audience: law enforcement, attorneys, forensic scientists, and systems administrators, for instance...In all, the book and CD are an excellent introduction to an increasingly important area of law enforcement." -- Ben Rothke, SecurityManagement I would very highly recommend this book to all those professionals who want to venture into the new and exciting branch of computer forensics. This book is good value for money, and should adorn the bookshelves of all computer experts, especially those who are in computer forensics. - Internet Journal of Forensic Medicine Reviews for 2nd Edition: This behemoth of a book offers more than 680 pages of useful information on digital forensics and computer crime. There's something for everyone - law enforcement agencies that collect and process evidence, forensic analysts, lawyers and other information security professionals. ...Casey does a great job making difficult concepts easy to understand. The tools and methodology described are up to date and relevant, and the case studies are detailed perfectly. This book is a great reference for any security professional facing issues in this area. - ComputerWorld

"Eoghan Casey's work will be music to the ears of computer-crime investigators. Remarkably thorough in scope, this book offers something no other textbook does: a stable set of standards to achieve and surpsass.. Remarkably, given the short lifespan of today's tech books, this book is likely to have lasting value."--Security Management

Book Description

Required reading for anyone involved in computer investigations or computer administration!

Format: Hardcover
Sometimes, defense attorneys have it easy: one slip-up by the prosecution and evidence is thrown out. Knowing that, law enforcement goes to great lengths to ensure that evidence is appropriately collected and protected. That works well in the physical world, where law enforcement has many generations' worth of experience. But in the modern world of computers and digital networks, where the simple act of rebooting a computer is enough to wipe out large amounts of evidence, law enforcement clearly needs thorough guidance.
Such a resource is here: Digital Evidence and Computer Crime, an excellent book that details the elements of digital crime. Author Eoghan Casey does a superb job of applying forensic science to computers. The information presented here is critical to a diverse audience: law enforcement, attorneys, forensic scientists, and systems administrators, for instance.
While cybercrime law is in some ways similar to other aspects of criminal law, it nonetheless has its own language and categories. For instance, jurisdiction is a key element in both the physical and digital realms, but it is a much trickier concept in the latter. Casey develops this topic and many more. Those new to computers and networks need not worry: the book begins with an explanation of how they function. With the basics out of the way, Casey details how computers can be used in crime and how the evidence created from these activities can be used for later analysis....The accompanying CD-ROM contains simulated cases that integrate many of the topics covered in the text. In all, the book and CD are an excellent introduction to an increasingly important area of law enforcement.

The author gives basic understanding for everyone. The law enforcement professional will find it rudimentary on issues of edvidence seizure and chain of custody, but then he gives some insight into the technical aspects (the OSI and so forth) which is probably new material. Then for the technical professional, the opposite is true.
Not for the more experience InfoSec/forensic professional. But an outstanding introduction for those wishing to get into the practice - in the Atlanta ISSA, we use this as our primer training text book.

This text was used for the digital evidence and computer crime class that I just completed. The book is clear and easy to understand. It goes into detail only when needed. I was concerned that this information would quickly become out of date, but the ideas presented are current and provide a solid background for understanding any newer technologies that come down the road. I usually sell my books after the semester ends, but I have decided to keep this one.

You don't have to be a computer expert or forensic scientist to understand this text. I found it to be very through, yet easily to follow and understand with great examples. This one is a must for anyone just beginning to explore foresenic digital evidence !

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By D. Kall Loper on May 18, 2000
Format: Hardcover
I have reviewed several digital forensics books for use in a class I teach. I found this one to be vastly superior to others. It provides an exellent integration of technical, procedural, and legal concepts. A standard forensics text that taught only laboratory procedure would be worthless for all but the most specialized classes. Other digital forensics books haven't realized the whole picture regardless of the quality of their 'lab procedures.' This text reinforces the application of existing knowledge to computer forensics by showing it in context of the system.
I recommend this book for investigators looking to expand their expertise to computer crime, forensics specialists with the same goal, for course adoption, and for anyone interested in the process of computer crime investigation.

This isn't a novel. It isn't an easy read. It IS a good resource for learning about forensic analysis of computer systems. Topics like search and seizure, logging and others will be quite useful to the professional investigator.
Note: this is not a book aimed at network security personnel. You need to know something about law and about investigations to get the most out of it.

I was really expecting this textbook to be uber boring and technical. It does have a good amount of technical details in it, but overall it was a good read. I used this book for an online course, and I really felt that the author did a great job of giving a good overall primer on digital evidence and computer crime, especially for those coming from a non-technical background. It was also very interesting to read, with actual cases that highlight the principles it discusses.

If you are a lawyer or a police detective with some IT background it is one of the greatest book you can find to improve significantly your skills on evidence searching in the modern world where computers are part of day life of most, including law offenders and their victims.

Be aware this is not a text on "computer crime". Eventually it will include something on this subject, but its focus is "general" crime evidence searching.

On the other hand, if you have strong IT background you will find this book something like a tutorial and missing lots of "more advanced" possibilities, but can be useful for some initial hints to some techniques to be developed in other place.
