Forensic image acquisition is an important part of postmortem incident response and evidence collection. Digital forensic investigators acquire, preserve, and manage digital evidence to support civil and criminal cases; examine organizational policy violations; resolve disputes; and analyze cyber attacks. Practical Forensic Imaging takes a detailed look at how to secure and manage digital evidence using Linux-based command line tools. This essential guide walks you through the entire forensic acquisition process and covers a wide range of practical scenarios and situations related to the imaging of storage media. You ll learn how to: Perform forensic imaging of magnetic hard disks, SSDs and flash drives, optical discs, magnetic tapes, and legacy technologies Protect attached evidence media from accidental modification Manage large forensic image files, storage capacity, image format conversion, compression, splitting, duplication, secure transfer and storage, and secure disposal Preserve and verify evidence integrity with cryptographic and piecewise hashing, public key signatures, and RFC-3161 timestamping Work with newer drive and interface technologies like NVME, SATA Express, 4K-native sector drives, SSHDs, SAS, UASP/USB3x, and Thunderbolt Manage drive security such as ATA passwords; encrypted thumb drives; Opal self-encrypting drives; OS-encrypted drives using BitLocker, FileVault, and TrueCrypt; and others Acquire usable images from more complex or challenging situations such as RAID systems, virtual machine images, and damaged media With its unique focus on digital forensic acquisition and evidence preservation, Practical Forensic Imaging is a valuable resource for experienced digital forensic investigators wanting to advance their Linux skills and experienced Linux administrators wanting to learn digital forensics.

MEDIA REVIEWS

“Despite the huge impact of this subject matter, there have been precious few books on the topic to date. Luckily, Practical Forensic Imaging steps in now to fill the gap. An excellent addition to any bookshelf.”—Forensic Focus“I am a big fan of this book, and found it to contain the right amount of technical content coupled with important concepts and concerns surrounding forensic imaging. I’d encourage anyone in DFIR who is imaging regularly or looking to increase their Linux skills to check out a copy of the book.”—505 Forensics“Cybercrime and digital forensics expert Bruce Nikkel describes the use of open source command line technology to obtain and manage forensic data. Target readers are the expanding number of forensic practitioners including forensic and electronic discovery technicians in legal, auditing, and consulting firms; incident response teams; law enforcement forensic specialists; and forensic investigators.”—The Lawyer's PC“It's commonly said that you should assume the bad guys have already breached your networks. The ability to carry out forensic examinations is one of the key skills you'll need in response to that risk, and this book is a solid introduction to acquiring those skills.”—Network Security Newsletter"I loved Bruce Nikkel's book Practical Forensic Imaging from @nostarch - but his new book Practical Linux Forensics is [fire]. Beginner to intermediate, and a good desktop reference."—DFIRScience, @DFIRScience
