This paper explores the development of the digital forensics process, compares and contrasts four particular forensic methodologies, and finally proposes an model of the digital forensic procedure. This model attempts to address some of the shortcomings of previous methodologies, and provides the following advantages: a consistent and standardized framework for digital forensic tool development; a mechanism for applying the framework to future digital technologies; a generalized methodology that judicial members can use to relate technology to non-technical observers; and, the potential fo...
