The DC3 Digital Forensics Challenge is a public, online, and international Challenge held annually by the Department of Defense (DoD) Cyber Crime Center (DC3). The Challenge is a call to the digital forensics community to pioneer new investigative tools, techniques, and methodologies.
It encourages innovation from a broad range of individuals, teams, and institutions to provide technical solutions for computer forensic science examiners in the lab as well as in the field. The Challenge ends November 2, 2011!
