Since the popularization of data encryption techniques, use of virtual machines and cloud computing, the practice of turning computers off and seize them for later dead analysis in laboratory, common until recently, has become quite reckless. Volatile data present on running computers or otherwise data protected through user passwords, may contain essential data to the investigated case elucidation, that will be lost in case of system shutdown. The modern recommendation in cases of computers search and seizure is to extract volatile data and to make a logical acquisition from password protected areas that are visible while the computer is still running, before shutting down the system and performing the traditional seizure.
Seizure, forensic, volatile, investigation, capture.
