Course Description

The one-day training course on peer-to-peer forensics and P2P Marshal includes:

  • Overview of the architecture of peer-to-peer file sharing systems: networks and clients
  • Legitimate and illegitimate uses of peer-to-peer systems
  • Forensic details of peer-to-peer software commonly seen in criminal investigations
  • Forensic analysis of client evidence
  • Potential pitfalls of evidence analysis
  • Hands-on exercises using manual analysis techniques
  • Detailed instruction for using P2P Marshal in forensic investigations
  • Hands-on exercises using P2P Marshal
  • Certification

Digital forensic investigators often find peer-to-peer file sharing software present on the images of hard drives they examine. Investigators must determine what P2P software is present, where the associated information is stored, retrieve the information from the appropriate directories, and then analyze the results. This training course presents techniques for P2P investigations using manual techniques and introduces the use of P2P Marshal, a new, automated tool for the detection and analysis of peer-to-peer usage.

Duration: Two-Day Course

This in-depth course covers an expanded roster of P2P networks, goes into greater depth on P2P network architecture, and includes additional training on both manual and automated investigative techniques.
