Another day another…

Posted on September 30, 2009. Filed under: All, forensic, life | Tags: , , , , |

Spent yesterday at the Investigator magazine’s conference in Towcester and presented a paper on future technical challenges for investigators. Apart from the usual anti-forensic stuff (encryption, wiping, exploits, steganography), I think the next big thing may be parasitic cloud computing. As mobile phones converge more and more with “proper” computers and have always-on data connections, there’s going to be a whole world of spare storage and processing power out there. It just makes sense for it to be exploited in some way so that resources are used wherever they are most available or most effective. Investigating an amorphous processing system though – should be a few PhDs in that.

Speaking of the Investigator (a fine publication, really!) – I may well be writing a few pieces for them – keep an eye on their site and if you have any ideas, let me know.

Today’s been taken up with trying to get a proper job again (anyone need a full-time academic researcher with a bad attitude ? ) and putting more material onto the book website – it’s coming together and I know the exercises I want on there. Question is – will iWeb let me organise it how I want ?
