Electronic discovery refers to a process in which electronic data is sought, located, secured, and searched with the intent of using it as evidence in a legal case. Computer forensics is the application of computer investigation and analysis techniques to perform an investigation to find out exactly what happened on a computer and who was responsible. IDC estimates that the U.S. market for computer forensics will be grow from $252 million in 2004 to $630 million by 2009. Business is strong outside the United States, as well. By 2011, the estimated international market will be $1.8 billion dollars. The Techno Forensics Conference has increased in size by almost 50% in its second year; another example of the rapid growth in the market. This book is the first to combine cybercrime and digital forensic topics to provides law enforcement and IT security professionals with the information needed to manage a digital investigation. Everything needed for analyzing forensic data and recovering digital evidence can be found in one place, including instructions for building a digital forensics lab. * Digital investigation and forensics is a growing industry * Corporate I.T. departments investigating corporate espionage and criminal activities are learning as they go and need a comprehensive guide to e-discovery * Appeals to law enforcement agencies with limited budgets

Part 1 Multimedia Evidence Handling includes a discussion on the terminology, real-world requirements, standards, legal aspects and technical challenges regarding multimedia evidence which concern forensics examiners and practitioners in law enforcement and digital forensics/e-discovery industry. It will highlight key differences between computer forensics and multimedia forensics, and the new technical challenges raised from such differences. Part 2 Digital Evidence Extraction bridges digital forensics and multimedia forensics by focusing on extraction of two classes of evidence: 1) non-multimedia evidence that can be extracted from multimedia data via a multimedia processing and analysis process, 2) multimedia evidence that are extracted or enhanced via non-multimedia forensic approaches (e.g. by using traditional computer forensic techniques and tools). Part 3 Multimedia Device and Source Forensics focuses on two main topics: digital forensics of multimedia devices and multimedia source identification. The first topic covers available techniques and tools of analysing multimedia devices to recover different types of evidence, and the second topic is about determining the source of a multimedia artefact (a digital or printed multimedia document). Multimedia devices covered include digital cameras/camcorders, audio recorders and players, scanners, printers. Part 4 Multimedia Content Forensics focuses on forensic analysis and identification of multimedia data which is a core area in the multimedia forensic field. Chapters in this part are about pure digital data, but many techniques are based on physical mechanisms that are involved in the generation of the digital data. Some techniques are also based on multimedia device/source identification from the third part, e.g. image forgery may be detected by exposing clues about mismatch of detected sources of different regions of the same image.
