|Title:||Ten years of computer forensic tool testing|
|Published:||October 12, 2011|
|Abstract:||The Computer Forensic Tool Testing (CFTT) project at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has been active since 2000. The project develops methodologies for testing computer forensic software tools by the creation of general tool specifications, test procedures, test criteria, and test data sets. The results provide the information necessary for toolmakers to improve tools, for users to make informed choices about acquiring and using computer forensics tools, and for interested parties to understand the capabilities of such tools. Our approach for testing computer forensic tools is based on well-recognized international methodologies for conformance testing.|
