The detection of steganography software on a suspect computer is important to the subsequent forensic analysis. As the research shows, many steganography detection programs work best when there are clues as to the type of steganography that was employed in the first place. Finding steganography software on a computer would give rise to the suspicion that there are actually steganography files with hidden messages on the suspect computer. Furthermore, the type of steganography software found will directly impact any subsequent steganalysis (e.g., S-Tools might direct attention to GIF, BMP, and WAV files, whereas JP Hide-&-Seek might direct the analyst to look more closely at JPEG files).
Computer forensics is the forensics, which is aimed at the detection of the evidence with help of the analysis of the computer technology and digital media. Every day people commit millions of crimes but it is obvious that with the development of the Internet and information technology more and more illegal actions are committed in the web and computer networks. The possibility to use the deleted information from the networks for the forensics is still questioned, because it is difficult to prove its validity. Computer forensics is conducted for the civil criminal matters. If there is a criminal manner, the case is devoted for the expert who will do his best and analyse the information with the purpose to gain evidence, which will be helpful to prove the guilt of the criminal.
Generally, forensics works with the information which is closely connected to the case but is ciphered and here the main duty of an expert in forensics is to decipher the data. Then, the experts check and analyze the computer software which has been used in order to get access to the network. Generally, such software is harmful for the operation system and the computer of the victim (very often the problem of hackers is mentioned in this case). Finally, if an expert managed to find certain information, he will need to analyze it well and find the evidence from the whole pack of the found files. With the development of the information technology and social networks the opportunities of forensics have become wider and enable the experts collect more reliable information and evidence about the criminals.
Computer forensics is the important topic for the research, because today it has become one of the most reliable methods used to identify the criminal and prove his guilt. In order to complete a successful term paper on computer forensics a student is supposed to devote much time to the analysis of the topic and learn about its principles as much as possible. The core requirements of a good term paper are: interesting and original content, adequate and deep explanation of the topic, rich methodology and high-quality literature review. Finally, one is supposed to conclude the paper well and define the value of the topic for the sphere of crime and law.
