There is a proposed Stack Exchange site about Computer Forensics. Are there any questions there that would not be on-topic on IT Security?

I'd say no, but I'd prefer to have confirmation (or infirmation) from a pro.

(Also raised on the Area 51 discussion zone.)

    Good call @Gilles - it is entirely within our scope. So I've upvoted your discussion point and added my support.

Completed - proposal closed by @Shog9


Good to see that this has already been handled, but FTR:

The only things I can think of that might be out of IT Security's realm here, would be some particular "how do I use" or other "application troubleshooting" questions which more appropriately belong on SU/SF. There's also the usually off-topic "shopping recommendation" types and such, which would just be closed no matter where they are in SE.

So, unless anyone else can think of a subset of Computer Forensics questions which fits the SE model, is off-topic on any other current SE site, and is large enough to be worth making its own site, I agree with the proposal closure.
