The complexity of digital forensic analysis continues to grow in lockstep with the rapid growth of the size of forensic targets. Forensic examiners rely heavily on hash-based techniques to quickly and efficiently screen the data for known objects. Recent research has considerably expanded the range of hash-based techniques to include adaptations of data-fingerprinting methods from other domains. The authors describe the driving problems that motivate R&D in this area, and survey both established practices and recent research advances.
