  booktitle={SAC '09},
To be able to examine large amounts of data in a timely manner in search of important evidence during crime investigations is essential to the success of computer forensic examinations. [] Key Method This system is composed of specialized intelligent agents that act based on the experts knowledge of the technical domain. Their goal is to analyze and correlate the data contained in the evidences of an investigation and based on its expertise, present the most interesting evidence to the human examiner, thus…
