DFRWS 2012 Forensics Challenge Results

Overview   |   Results


There were two official submissions to the DFRWS 2013 Forensics Challenge, which was a continuation of the 2012 challenge to evaluate the state of the art in data encoding classification. As in 2012, this challenge was formulated as an explicit `best-of-breed' competition of tools. The lack of quantity of submissions was met with much greater quality of submissions as compared to 2012's submissions.
This year DFRWS offered a prize for a winning submission that exhibited all the attributes of a field-ready tool with the necessary robustness and performance, and a clear winner emerged.
The presentation given at DFRWS 2013 can be found here.
