Students will study several specialized areas of digital forensics, namely, information hiding, anti-forensics, and network forensics. The broad field of data hiding and anti-forensics will be explored with a specific concentration on cryptography (secret writing) and steganography (hidden writing). Basic principles of digital media will be studied in order to understand how digital images, audio, and video can be manipulated and how such manipulation can be detected. Finally, introductory concepts about computer network investigations will be presented.
