In my first year I did a digital forensics module. I learnt about the legal and technical side of forensics. Such as how important a chain of custody is to keep the legal integrity of evidence so that it is admissible in court.
Firstly I did a crime scene investigation to gather evidence.
Then I was given a .dd file to investigate which was from DFRWS 2005 RODEO CHALLENGE. http://www.cfreds.nist.gov/dfrws/Rhino_Hunt.html
I wrote a report for the CSI and analysis which can be downloaded below.
