Project Title: Implementation of a Prototype for Automated Event Sequence Reconstruction for Web Browsing data in Computer Forensics
Semester: 2 2015
Committe Chair: Dr. Mario Garcia
Committee Member 1: Dr. David Thomas
Project Description: Computer forensics is the collection and analysis of data from the computers and different digital devices to obtain evidence. In order to describe the circumstances of the particular incident investigators need to build up the timeline events from the past. One of the existing works on digital forensics timeline concentrates on retrieving times from disk image to a respective timeline. However, this method of extracting data can yield numerous events like file modifications or a Registry key update for a single disk. In the proposed system, a prototype has been implemented using Java which reconstructs the sequence of events for data in browsing history. The raw data extracted at the crime scene from digital devices is in the form of a .txt file. These .txt files are then stored into MySQL database in specified fields for retrieving and analyzing purpose in future. The investigator has an option to search desired data from the database for further analysis by obtaining timelines.
