Python Scripts PFIC 2017


Leveraging Python for Forensics and Incident Response
Presenter: Chet Hosmer

The Python programming language is ideally suited for the development of specialized forensic and investigative applications. In addition, Python scripts can be integrated with existing forensic platforms to extend their capability. The language and environment can be mastered by virtually anyone with an interest. This lab session is specifically targeted at those with limited or even zero-knowledge of Python, Scripting or Programming. The session will provide a hands-on introduction to Python where students will first use existing Python Forensic Scripts developed by the author and then develop their own Python Forensic script leveraging a supplied template. All participants will receive the open source examples and templates utilized during the session.
