Forensisk granskning av datorer ur ett datasäkerhetsperspektiv (Swedish)
This work contains a brief study about Forensic Computing problems done from a Computer Security perspective.
Based on the description and investigation methods of Forensic Computing, a list of common difficulties that forensic examiners have to deal with has been created. After making an analysis about each difficulty in the Forensic Computing field, it can be said that the main reasons are related to the legal restrictions and an incorrect security management.
Using a Computer Security perspective for analysing why the incorrect security management generates problems in the forensic computing field, we have made a risk analysis of a possible distribution for a correct security management. Later, based on own results, a list on priorities in prevention methods in t he Forensic Computing field has been created.
Finally it can be said that the difficulties in the Forensic Computing field could be avoided by creating awareness among users about the importance of taking prevention methods for protecting data and consequently for decreasing the number of e-crimes.
