General instructions

Fill in the following form by Abril 6th, indicating: whether you prefer to present an article or a project, the topic of the work, and the date of your presentation. The allocated time slot for each presentation is 40min, including Q&A.

You can find more information about this component of the course evaluation in the slides of the first lecture. Note that each article/project can be presented only once by a single student. Please coordinate with each other to avoid picking the same topic.

Ideas for article selection

Here is a zip file containing a pool of pre-selected papers you may study and present in your seminar. I recommend another set of papers about advanced topics on digital forensics. You are free to select another paper for your presentation, but in that case, I strongly urge you to contact me in advance.

Ideas for project selection

We propose several project ideas from the two primary sources indicated below. You should choose one of these training exercises, solve it, and present your findings in your seminar.


We selected some project ideas from the ENISA website. This website contains several assignments, but we suggest you pick one of the following three as they are directly related to forensics, and we have confirmed that they work correctly. To help you with the technical setup of these assignments, we compiled an accompanying document that you should read alongside the leading guide provided by ENISA. For the same reason, we have also created additional helper files and artifacts to facilitate the exercise. These files are available here and are adequately explained in the accompanying document. The project assignments are:

  1. Forensic Analysis: Local Incident Response
  2. Forensic Analysis: Network Incident Response
  3. Forensic Analysis: Webserver Analysis

Other Sources

Alternatively, you may choose other projects enlisted on this website. If you opt to choose one of these topics, please make sure that you first talk to me to ensure the workload is adequate.
