Abstract

The Forensic Image Generator Generator (Forensig) is a system that allows to produce file system images for training in forensic computing. We report experiences of using Forensig within a course on forensic computing. Apart from revealing the pitfalls when using artificially generated images in class, we argue that they can be used to quantify the difficulty of an analysis problem and, in turn, help to understand misinterpretation issues in practice.
