Technical forensics-what is this?

Forensic technology has become a broad field of investigation, involving scientific evidence used in criminal cases. The physical evidence includes scientific collections and analysis. There are many new aspects of this type of technology that can be used for evidence or fact determination in civil or criminal proceedings.

Digital software is one of the areas that provides a lot of technology. Criminals and terrorists have the opportunity to use various electronic devices in crime. With the increase in criminal activities with digital components, it is necessary for law enforcement agencies to be equipped with equipment to deal with these criminal activities. Digital forensics software has the ability to recover data from reformatted or repartitioned computers

Other applicable software programs:

• Programs that can wipe clean hard drives

• Spyware type can find hidden partitions, and can quickly handle large hard drives and so on.

• Can compress images from floppy disk to “flat” images for analysis

• A “partition manager” that checks all partitions on the hard drive and can switch them or even hide them

• New write-blocking program protects computer information more effectively than past programs

The science of explaining image content is forensic image analysis. Several companies have produced effective equipment that can reduce costs and speed up investigations. The device is designed for comparative photography, analysis of content, photogrammetry (using photos for measurement) and verification of images. Through various technologies, big data, pixel aspect ratio and errors can be used to extract information from videos, photos and animations. This is valid even if one tries to provide evidence.

Video forensics is one of the newer tools, mainly for the scientific inspection and evaluation of multimedia evidence in legal affairs. The goal of this technology is to provide judges and juries with accurate pictures of evidence to help determine the judgment in civil or criminal cases. In addition, the technology uses processing techniques to enhance video images, refine granular photos and enhance specific people or objects in video images, and in addition, it converts digital video to a specific format for forensic analysis. Such work is very important for solving cases of law enforcement, security, surveillance and even military operations.

Data recovery is the process of retrieving data from a computer for legal purposes. Deleting all information from the computer is much more difficult than most people realize. The purpose of data recovery is to retrieve lost or deleted information. Use the process of collecting, analyzing and then saving to complete the mined data. After successfully completing these steps, computer experts will be able to submit the lost data to the court. The technology may be used in civil or criminal proceedings to provide evidence to the court.

If a forensic doctor describes evidence that can be used in court, it must also cover the technology and science required to provide that evidence. Forensic investigations are conducted in a legal manner, establishing carefully checked facts and evidence, while keeping in mind the chain of custody to be displayed in court. The breakdown within the scope of this investigation is firewall forensics, database forensics, and mobile device forensics.
