Appendix B

Here you'll find some basic guidance as to how you should approach computer forensics using a Linux system. This appendix by no means substitutes for formal training on computer forensics but it will give you initial momentum for starting.

To begin with, you'll need two basic things: a computer and some software. Although you could use any computer and a simple hexeditor, you'll benefit from an adequate selection of both. So let's start by looking at what hardware and what software will make life easier for the average computer forensic examination. Take into account that we're targeting a "simple" hacking-scenario type of forensic examination. There are other types or scenarios that require different hardware and software, but this appendix should provide you with a generic focus that you can evolve from. Consider this your "starter-kit."
