Welcome to Digital Forensics Investigation Research Laboratory!

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

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