The premise of the book is that forensic information can be found everywhere you look. With this guiding principle in mind we develop tools to collect information from obvious and not so obvious sources, we walk through analyses of real intrusions in detail, and we discuss the limitations of our approach. The target audience of the book is anyone who wants to deepen their understanding of how computer systems work, as well as anyone who is likely to become involved with the technical aspects of computer intrusion or system analysis. These are not only system administrators, incident responders, other computer security professionals, or forensic analysts, but also anyone who is concerned about the impact of computer forensics on privacy.
