Thank you for your interest in DFIR.Science. This site started in 2008 (originally as CybercrimeTech) as a place to document opensource software for digital forensic investigations. Since then, we have evolved into creating tutorials to answer questions from practicing digital forensic investigators.

We are usually the most active on Twitter.

Goals

Our main goal is to make computing, information security, and digital forensic investigation knowledge accessible to everyone. Infosec and digital forensic knowledge are especially expensive to access. We want every investigator, regardless of budget, to have access to useful information and tools.

Our ultimate goal is for the revenue generated from this site to support us working full time to build low-cost digital forensic laboratories for countries in need. We have worked with countries around the world to increase their digital investigation capacity and capabilities, usually funded by short-term grants. Most countries, however, need long-term support to use resources to their maximum potential. If you are interested in helping us achieve this goal, please support us.
