Live View: A New View on Forensic Imaging

A few semesters ago I was introduced to the Live View program during one of my digital forensics courses. Upon hearing about it, I was instantly intrigued. What more could you want during a forensic investigation than to be able to boot up a forensic image and control the environment that it is running in; all without altering the original evidence.

Live View does just that; and does it very well mind you. As I learned more and more about the capabilities of Live View a decided to base my final paper for the course around Live View and the forensic imaging process.

The paper gives a fairly high-level overview of the importance of forensic imaging and some of the techinques. In the later part of the paper I discuss the actual Live View program as well as comparable programs.
