SECURITY & PRIVACY LECTURE 06, Disk Encryption: Tue. Nov. 26, 5:00PM, MC 2038 ---
Our last Security lecture is presented by Zak Blacher:
``In Zak's talk, "Disk Encryption: Digital Forensic Analysis & Full Volume Encryption", he aims to cover filesystem forensic analysis and counter forensics by addressing the entire design stack; starting with filesystem construction, design, and theory, and drilling down to the inner workings of hard drives (modern platter hdds, as well as mlc-ssds). This talk leads in to a discussion on full volume encryption, and how this helps to protect one's data.''
