DFIR Review – Year in Review <by Jessica Hyde >
Hi! We at DFIR Review wanted to take a moment to share some of the great things all the volunteers at DFIR Review have been doing over the last year and all the great peer-reviewed posts available at dfir.pubpub.org .
For those who are unfamiliar, DFIR Review is a project under DFRWS that conducts peer review of content and blogs, regardless of if they have already been posted. The goal of this project is to provide verification, validation, and review of digital forensics content that is rapidly shared by practitioners. This allows for the review process to take place while the content is still available to the community.
In 2020, DFIR Review published 11 pieces including the following:
- Google Search Bar & Search Term History – Are You Finding Everything by Joshua Hickman
- OK Computer…er…Google. Dissecting Google Assistant (Part 1) by Joshua Hickman
- OK Computer…er…Google. Dissecting Google Assistant (Part Deux) by Joshua Hickman
- Chromebook Forensic Acquisition by Daniel Dickerman
- Parsing Google’s Now Playing History on Pixel Devices by Kevin Pagano
- Windows 10 Jump List and Link File Artifacts – Saved, Copied, and Moved by Larry Jones
