On the use of hyperbolic visualization to assist digital forensic analysis

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The analysis stage of digital forensic investigation is suggested to be a creative process which relies primarily on the intuition and experience of the analyst. Although other stages of the investigative process, such as acquisition, are relatively well supported with tools; this process of analysing the dataset to derive a testable high-level hypothesis is not so well supported. It can be reasoned that the interactive and exploratory nature of information visualization could potentially allow it to be applied to the analytical stage in order to aid investigation. This paper demonstrates how 3D hyperbolic visualization could potentially be used to supplement the Autopsy 3 software.
