…meanwhile, in National Institue of Standards and Technology (NIST) newa, comes a terrific piece on the latest efforts to provide assurance by NIST to the Drone Forensics community, with a compendium of tools and data, not the least of which is a grouping of Computer Forensic Reference Datasets, or CFReDS, of which, encompass digital evidence simulations (all available on a no-fee basis).
‘A forensic image is a complete data extraction from a digital device, and NIST maintains a repository of images made from personal computers, mobile phones, tablets, hard drives and other storage media. The images in NIST’s Computer Forensic Reference Datasets, or CFReDS, contain simulated digital evidence and are available to download for free. Recently, NIST opened a new section of CFReDS dedicated to drones, where forensic experts can find images of 14 popular makes and models, a number that is expected to grow to 30 by December 2018.’ via the National Institue of Standards and Technology
