A History of Digital Forensics

Abstract : The field of digital forensics is relatively new. While its history may be chronologically short, it is complex. This paper outlines the early history of digital forensics from the perspective of an early participant. The history is divided into four epochs: pre-history, infancy, childhood and adolescence. Each of these epochs is examined from the perspective of the people involved, the criminal targets, the forensic tools utilized, the organizational structures that supported digital forensic practitioners and how the community formed. This history is, by necessity, incomplete and biased. There is a need for rigorous historical research in this area before all traces of the past are forgotten or obliterated.
