Forensics forms

It struck me as a bit odd that part of the homework (tonight was the
first class) was to search for forms used in collecting digital evidence
(use of the term "computer forensics" has been formally "frowned
upon").

After a 15-minute Google search, it's amazing. Everybody,
including their mother and her Bingo friends, has some form of computer
forensics (sorry Rob) book or course. Very few of those sites, other
than law enforcement, provides any tools or support.

The assignment is
actually to find a number of processes used to support the creation and
maintenance of the chain of custody, and discuss them. This could get
interesting.
