This section contains various papers written and/or maintained by members of The FTimes Project. The default format of these papers will be PDF. To view these papers, we recommend Adobe Acrobat Reader 5.0 or higher. Where possible, each paper will be available in two formats: classic and on-screen. If you intend to print the document, you should download the classic format. If you just want to read it at your terminal, you should download the on-screen format.

Note: No matter which format you select, we have found that the best viewing results are obtained when you download the document and view it outside your Web browser. To download these documents without having them automatically displayed in your Web browser, try using a right click on the link followed by "Save {Target|Link} As..." or whatever option your browser provides to save the document directly to disk.

Note: The on-screen documents have been known to lock up or become sluggish when viewed by Acrobat Reader from within a Web browser. This behavior has been confirmed on Windows NT/2K systems for both Netscape and Internet Explorer. Upgrading to Acrobat Reader 5.0 or higher seems to eliminate this problem.

System Baselining -- A Forensic Perspective

This paper defines baselining terminology, explains the mechanics of baselining, compares and contrasts different baselining techniques, and describes FTimes -- a system baselining and evidence collection tool. The paper also explores some of the criteria that evidence collection tools and techniques must satisfy if they are going to support prosecutions. In closing, it presents a pair of war stories that are typical of the times.
