“Computer Forensics with FTK” is a cross between a sales brochure and a quick start guide. The manuals that come with FTK (and are available for free at Accessdata's website) explain the software in much greater detail. There are no tutorials, aside from "This button does this and that button does that". I highly recommend not buying this book.

1.0 von 5 Sternen A little over exaggerated 16. April 2014

I purchased the Kindle version of the book and I do not know if there is any difference between it and the printed version but I will say that the description oversells the book immensely. The description claims that it is a tutorial for using the FTK product line to "enhance your Computer Forensics knowledge in an easier and more efficient way" but all it really does is provide a overview of the GUI interface for the products.and a brief one at that. I was able to go through the entire Kindle book in around an hour without any rushing or trouble. The first 20% of the book is just an introduction leaving 80 "pages" to cover 4 different tools, an index, and chapters on new features and a few random bits. Averaging at about 12 pages per chapter including pictures is not nearly enough time to cover anything in detail.

I will admit that he does do a decent job at pointing out the different buttons on the tools but for a $10 e-book claiming to introduce you to the field of computer forensics and "learn the memory forensics technique using the memory dump feature of FTK Imager." and "how to extract some important information such as process and DLL information, Sockets, and Driver List Open Handles." I expected a lot more.

This book will be good for you if you just need a refresher on where a button is on a FTK tool but if you want something that will provide any insight into working in the digital forensics field I would look elsewhere. The whole thing just feels as if it is a rough draft or an outline for a more detailed book.
5.0 von 5 Sternen A practical book for the beginners 1. Juni 2014
Von Sam - Veröffentlicht auf
I recently had an opportunity for a small computer forensics project, I have been in IT field for very long time but my focus is mainly in Enterprise Software Architecture, so this field is still very new to me. This book provides a very practical entry point to get up to speed and allow me to have good presentation material/background in front of my clients. FTK and AccessData can be the right enterprise tools for you if you would like to spend more time on analyzing the alerts and leave the data collection to the tool/framework.

Recommend for Computer Forensics beginners.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent Guide to FTK 5. Mai 2014
Von Bill Jones - Veröffentlicht auf
While I'm not an expert on FTK or Computer Forensics, I felt this book did an excellent job to guide me with setting up FTK and navigating my way around the interface while explaining the concepts clearly. I do agree with other reviewers about the book in regard to content, it could have gone more in depth and I would have gladly consumed more of my time reading about it. It's very interesting, and this has opened my eyes to exploring more unknown issues faced when working on sensitive infrastructure, I have an appreciation for the "data".

I downloaded FTK and it worked under Windows 8.1, it was a very large download and it took awhile, but it was well worth it. I would recommend this book to anyone who is starting out with FTK, if you are an advanced user this book would only serve as a reference to the GUI options. With my skill level it was a PERFECT introduction.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A good book to get knowing FTK basic capabilties 1. Mai 2014
Von A. Zubarev - Veröffentlicht auf
Computer Forensics with FTK by Fernando Carbone book is my first read on the computer forensics science subject. Being not new to the computer and database programming frankly had always made me curious what happens with this wealth of data that travels through my laptop or sits somewhere without my knowledge. This book reveals some of this mystery, or at least promises to shed some light onto this aspect.

The book dedicates itself to one of a dozen or so forensic tools called FTK. FTK is proprietary software by AccessData and runs on a Windows OS only. FTK has seemingly gained a lot in popularity though in the public sector. Despite this fact many components of FTK are free so you must be able to play around with several major parts. FTK can also be freely downloaded.

The book is not terribly long, but if you are in a hurry it will cover nicely all the important aspects of conducting a forensic analysis. It is an easy read. The book has pictures so you would rarely need to put it down to play with the software.

After finishing reading this book I realized that FTK is quite comprehensive and a fairly complex tool. However, it promises to cover a typical forensic analysis in a professional manner. The author describes the process from the very basics to conducting a full fledged review that goes beyond a personal computer hard disk analysis to mobile phone or other devices with a report produced.

My favourite chapters were on Registry analysis and password guessing. Never knew this is so possible with FTK. Also its ability to gather evidence remotely blew my mind!

I generally recommend this book. Especially for novice in the field. FTK is also looking like a mature tool with many capabilities.

I am giving this book a 4 out of 5 rating. Mostly because this book is too short, reads as a manual than a problem solver and not covering the social media/public web activities evidence gathering, does not describe how to visualize the data and the very reporting is not covered in enough depth.
