forensics - Computer Definition
As in noncybercrimes, the science of sifting through cyber
clues to find evidence that a cybercrime has been committed.
With recent developments in forensics departments worldwide,
new technologies and cyberspace often come together to catch criminals in their
tracks. For example, in 2005, London’s Metropolitan Police tested the
effectiveness of SmartWater—a clear, odorless, nontoxic liquid containing
high-tech microscopic particles with a unique code. Though invisible to the
eye, SmartWater (which was developed by a former detective, Phil Cleary) glows
under ultraviolet light. So if an item such as jewelry or a DVD player has been
treated with the liquid, when it is stolen, forensic technicians can read the
coded particles under ultraviolet light to identify the real owner.
