Welcome to the COBIT ™ Open Guide

This website is an open source initiative often referred to as a “wiki”. It is intended to document COBIT ™ in plain English, including implementation issues.

“Open” in this context means that everyone can be involved in the process. You can edit existing pages to improve them, or even add new pages. See the QwikiSyntax page for details on how to achieve this.

Hopefully together we can create the best COBIT support resource.

What is COBIT ™?
COBIT stands for Control Objectives for Information and Related Technology. It is an open IT control and security standard with 6 elements: a summary, governance guidelines, control objectives, COBIT framework, audit guidelines, and implementation toolkit.

We are currently preparing a COBIT FAQ.

COBIT projects
We are implementing a number of sub-projects in support of COBIT ™. This includes the above FAQs, a set of implementation notes, the development of COBIT-specific security recommendations, an introduction to COSO, and the COBIT article library.

> Have you been in “hacker” groups before? And what are you doing there
> Was NMAP so successful before?

Before Nmap, I worked on several other security resources. As
“Exploit the World” (which still exists, but is too outdated). My
the previous page was called “Fedor’s Theater”. Before that I was
mostly active on (602) local BBS.

> How many computers do you have at home now?

Well, in order to develop network exploration tools like Nmap, you need
It is important that I have a decent network at home. At least this
I continue to buy new boxes under the pretext :). We’ll see
I currently have the following computers:

5 Linux boxes (amy; db; hopeless; playground; zardoz)
1 box of FreeBSD version 3.0 (Liberty)
1 box of OpenBSD 2.5 (vectra)
4 Solaris boxes (one IPC, SLC, ELC and Sparc2)
2 HP Envizex X Terms of Service
1 HP 382 Workstation (currently out of service)

With this network, I don’t need to heat the apartment :).

> What operating systems do you work with and which one do you like best?

As you can see from the above list, I prefer Linux :). But I think
* BSDs are good too. And Solaris also has its good points. I have
never really liked IRIX, HP-UX, Windows or VMS.

> What interests you outside of the IT world?

I love rock climbing, hiking, shooting and jogging. I appreciate
Travel and explore uncharted cities.

I also spend a lot of time reading books (science fiction; computer science
Crime), newspapers (New York Times; WSJ), magazines (Scientific
Americans, Barrons) and others.

> What would you call the second best port scanner?
> in stock?

I always thought the classic scanner strobe [1] was the good part
Software. Another excellent (more recent) scanner is Antirez hping2 [2].



> Are there other projects you are working on?

I am currently working on several. Besides the improvements to nmap, I
I am working on an important addition to my website that will
announced shortly. I am also working on several other projects: nsock,
ncrack and sd. I’m not a fan of perfumery, so I’ll keep the details.
until they are finished.

> What do you like best and want to share?
> Bookmark?

I have many different interests on the Internet, but here are mine
Favorite sites:

> Did you help eeye with the nmap port? What if it was faster;)?

I helped a little to understand the internal structure of nmap.
But I didn’t help port it to Windows as such. And no
Be careful, it is not faster than the UNIX version :). If ever NmapNT
becomes competitive in this regard, I immediately move on to my
Profile and start optimizing 🙂

An Open Guide to Computer Forensics!

This site is a community initiative. It should be built openly by volunteers. If you have knowledge in this area, you can enrich your knowledge by editing an existing page or creating new pages. It’s easy to help, but please visit our How to Contribute page for more information.

What is Computer Forensics?
Computer forensics, sometimes referred to as digital forensics, is often described as “the storage, retrieval and analysis of information stored on computers or electronic media.” It often involves digital evidence issues from an important legal perspective and is sometimes seen as a four-step process.

Open guides projects
We are currently carrying out a number of projects: mainly, the creation of knowledge bases on various aspects of computer forensics:
– General FAQ on Computer Forensics
– Information and medical legal advice on specific technologies, primarily: PC Forensics; CCP Forensics; Network Forensics
– List of opinions and medical and legal advice
– Development of general first aid procedures

External resources and support
Some of the most important purposes of forensic science are:

User group: for mutual support and interaction in computer forensics.

Resources: introduction, checklists, procedures … computer forensics toolkit
