Robust correctness testing for digital forensic tools
Pan, Lei and Batten, Lynn 2009, Robust correctness testing for digital forensic tools, in Forensics in telecommunications, information and multimedia : second international conference, e-Forensics 2009, Adelaide, Australia, January 19-21, 2009 : revised selected papers, Springer, Berlin, Germany, pp. 54-64.
In previous work, the authors presented a theoretical lower bound on the required number of testing runs for performance testing of digital forensic tools. We also demonstrated a practical method of testing showing how to tolerate both measurement and random errors in order to achieve results close to this bound. In this paper, we extend the previous work to the situation of correctness testing. The contribution of this methodology enables the tester to achieve correctness testing results of high quality from a manageable number of observations and in a dynamic but controllable way. This is of particular interest to forensic testers who do not have access to sophisticated equipment and who can allocate only a small amount of time to testing.
