Edgar Weippl gives a talk on Database Forensic at the Security Forum in Hagenberg.
Abstract: Whenever data is being processed, there are many places where parts of the data are temporarily stored; thus forensic analysis can reveal past activities, create a (partial) timeline and restore deleted data. While this fact is well known for computer forensic and multiple tools to forensically analyze data exit, the systematic analysis of database systems has only recently begun.
Clearly, database system are bound to leave more extensive traces since they not only store a file but, in addition, need indexes, rollback segments and log files. In this tutorial we will cover the basics of forensic analysis particularly focusing on database systems.
