About us

Welcome to the Digital Forensics Investigation Research Laboratory!

DigitalFIRE is a research laboratory in the University College Dublin School of Computer Science and Informatics. It was founded in 2007 to develop theoretical foundations and novel technology for computer security, cybercrime investigations, and related application areas. DigitalFIRE brings together researchers working on various aspects of digital research – from data recovery and malware analysis to anti-forensics detection and digital studies in the IT cloud. We work closely with law enforcement, commercial investigation services, and technology vendors.

This website presents our latest research results, practical advice and software. I hope you will find it helpful whether you are an investigator, researcher, or a prospective student.
