Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Virtualization creates new and difficult challenges for forensic investigations. Operating systems and applications running in virtualized environments often leave few traces, yielding little evidence with which to conduct an investigation. Virtualization and Forensics offers an in-depth view into the world of virtualized environments and the implications they have on forensic investigations. Part I explains the process of virtualization and the different types of virtualized environments. Part II details how virtualization interacts with the basic forensic process, describing the methods used to find virtualization artifacts in dead and live environments as well as identifying the virtual activities that affect the examination process. Part III address advanced virtualization issues, such as the challenges of virtualized environments, cloud computing, and the future of virtualization. After reading this book, you'll be equipped to conduct investigations in these environments with confidence. Gives you the end-to-end knowledge needed to identify server, desktop, and portable virtual environments, including: VMware, Parallels, Microsoft, and Sun Covers technological advances in virtualization tools, methods, and issues in digital forensic investigations Explores trends and emerging technologies surrounding virtualization technology

Synopsis:

Virtualized environments can make forensics investigation more difficult. Technological advances in virtualization tools essentially make removable media a PC that can be carried around in a pocket or around a neck. Running operating systems and applications this way leaves very little trace on the host system. Virtualization and Forensics explores all the newest methods for virtualized environments and the implications they have on the world of forensics. The book begins by explaining the different types of virtualization, then how virtualization affects the basic forensic process. It describes common methods to find virtualization artifacts on dead drives, live analysis and identify virtual activities that affect the examination process of virtualized environments. Finally, it will address virtualization issues such as security, data retention policies, and where the world of virtualization is headed.
