About the Author

Dr. Philip Polstra (known to his friends as Dr. Phil) is an internationally recognized hardware hacker. His work has been presented at numerous conferences around the globe including repeat performances at DEFCON (six presentations in four years), BlackHat, 44CON, GrrCON, MakerFaire, ForenSecure, and other top conferences. Dr. Polstra is a well-known expert on USB forensics and has published several articles on this topic. He has developed a number of video courses including ones on Linux forensics, USB forensics, and reverse engineering.

Dr. Polstra has developed degree programs in digital forensics and ethical hacking while serving as a professor and Hacker in Residence at a private university in the Midwestern United States. He currently teaches in one of the top Digital Forensics degree programs in the United States at Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania. In addition to teaching, he provides training and performs penetration tests on a consulting basis. When not working, he has been known to fly, build aircraft, and tinker with electronics. He is an accomplished aviator with thousands of hours of flight time and a dozen ratings as a pilot, flight instructor, mechanic, aircraft inspector, and avionics specialist. His latest happenings can be found on his website You can also follow him at @ppolstra on Twitter.

Dr. Polstra authored Hacking and Penetration Testing with Low Power Devices (Syngress, 2014) in which he showed the world how to easily build drop boxes, hacking consoles, and remote hacking drones with the BeagleBone Black and similar devices. In the course of creating these devices he developed his own Linux, Deck Linux, which is optimized for security testing with ARM-based devices. Techniques described in this book permit security penetration tests to be performed with multiple, possibly battery powered, devices which are controlled by a user up to two miles away from the target organization.

His latest book, Linux Forensics (Pentester Academy, 2015), is the most comprehensive and up-to-date resource available to anyone wishing to perform forensics on Linux systems. The first printing of this book sold out in under twenty five hours. This book is considered a must have by a number of forensic investigators around the world.
