This is it... the final sneak peek before my debut in the SANS360 at the DFIR Summit in Austin. Last week, I shared the Report Writing Guidelines included in the talk, and today I am happy to share a quick graphic relating to the testing of Open Source tools.
As investigators in the DFIR field, FOSS tools can become a very important part of our analysis tool kits. But perhaps just as essential as learning and utilizing new tools is the ability and time investment to really understand what it is that they do. Not only will this allow us to increase the efficiency of our exams, it also can help with the never-ending journey of discovery that we, and all of the DFIR community, are on.
I am planning to extend various parts of this graphic in future. If you have any suggestions for improvements (and I know there are a lot that could be made!) please feel free to e-mail me.
Also, for your viewing pleasure, here is a sneak peek at FE as she gears up for her journey to The Wonderful World of FOSS:
