Mattias Wecksten Abstract (workshop)

As you most likely are aware of everything you do with a computer system might be logged and tracked in every last minute detail if you or someone else decide to do so. What most users are not aware of though is all the traces and data that you leave behind although none asked for it.

This workshop will give the audience an insight in the world of invisible surveillance and what kind of tracks we leave behind by merely using a computer system. The participants will get hands on experience under supervision in the skills of data extraction, recovery and analysis. The tools to be used is your own computer, the open source forensic suite "Backtrack" (available at the lecture), along with a simulated computer system (in the form of USB flash card available at the lecture). The workshop will also include a number of examples of how to protect yourself from leaving unwanted traces behind.
