On Integrating Mobile Applications into the Digital Forensic Investigative Process
S. April Tanner. International Journal of Advanced Computer Science and Applications(IJACSA) (2013)
What if a tool existed that allowed digital forensic investigators to create their own apps that would assist them with the evidence identification and collection process at crime scenes? First responders are responsible for ensuring that digital evidence is examined in such a way that the integrity of the evidence is not jeopardized. Furthermore, they play a pivotal part in preserving evidence during the collection of evidence at the crime scene and transport to the laboratory. This paper proposes the development of a mobile application that can be developed for or created by a first responder to assist in the identification, acquisition, and preservation of digital evidence at a crime scene.
