Abstract (Summary)

The increased popularity of Google Chromebooks due to their ease of use, security features and low price have contributed to explosive growth in terms of their market share in the personal computing marketplace. This growing market share will result in Chromebooks becoming part of new and ongoing forensic investigations. It is important for forensic investigators to have a strong understanding of the forensic artifacts found on a Google Chromebook. The investigators need to know what these artifacts mean and how to acquire them. A Google Chromebook uses the Google Chrome Operating System for its operating system. The purpose for the research was to begin developing the necessary art in support of forensic examiners tasked with investigating Google Chromebooks and the data they use.
