Hash-based Classification of Data: Class-based Similarity Hashing

January 27, 2008

Full Text Hash-based Classification of Data: Class-based Similarity Hashing, IFIP 2008 Abstract In this paper, we introduce the notion of class-aware similarity hashes, or classprints which is an outgrowth of recent work on similarity hashing. Specifically, we build on the notion of context-based hashing to design a framework both for...

August 13, 2007

Full Text Multi-Resolution Similarity Hashing, DFRWS 2007 Abstract Large-scale digital forensic investigations present at least two fundamental challenges. The first one is accommodating the computational needs of a large amount of data to be processed. The second one is extracting useful information from the raw data in an automated fashion....

Forensic discovery auditing of digital evidence containers

April 2, 2007

Full Text Forensic discovery auditing of digital evidence containers, Journal of Digital Investigation 2007 Abstract Current digital forensics methods capture, preserve, and analyze digital evidence in generalpurpose electronic containers (typically, plain files)with no dedicated support to help establish that the evidence has been properly handled. Auditing of a digital investigation,...
