The Defense Department Cyber Crime Center (DC3) has conducted their DC3 Digital Forensics Challenge for the last 4 years to identify and recognize the Top Guns in the community and solve real-world challenges that digital forensic examiners face every day. The real-world cases could be the forensic examination of a terrorist's laptop, the artifacts of a sophisticated intrusion by an Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) into a critical infrastructure system, the desktop of a suspected spy, or to identify the producer of child abuse images. As technology proliferates into every aspect of daily life, the crucial evidence that proves or disproves an allegation may be found in a desktop computer at work or home, a GPS reciever, wrist watch, thumb drive, CD, DVD, cell phone, camera, or game system. Jim Christy (SA Ret), director of Future Exploration for DC3, will discuss why he created the contest and the future plans for the Challenges. Curt Barnard, a Cyber Operations master's student at the Air Force Institute of Technology and one of this year's Challenge winners, will discuss his experiences in the competition and his interest in digital forensics.
