Announcing the BitCurator Webinar Series

We are happy to announce the first in our BitCurator webinar series: An Introduction to the BitCurator Environment. This webinar will be the first in a monthly series of webinars addressing the use of Digital Forensics in the curation of born-digital materials. It will take place on Wednesday, November 20th from 10:00am – 11:00am EST and again from 2:oopm – 3:00pm EST. We will introduce participants to the basic functions of the BitCurator environment–from installation to generating forensics metadata reports. Specific topics covered will include:

  • Installing BitCurator as either a virtual machine or a stand-alone operating system
  • Learning to navigate within the BitCurator environment (BitCurator is a modified version of Ubuntu Linux)
  • Working with external media within BitCurator
  • Creating disk images via Guymager
  • Searching a disk image for personally identifiable information (PII)
  • An introduction to DFXML (Digital Forensics XML)
  • Generating the BitCurator reports
