The remarkable growth of investigations and exams numbers accomplished in computer crime investigation, as well as the integration of a variety of different technologies with the goal of providing quality of services, has transformed computer forensic management into an extremely complex activity. As the complexity continues to increase, it will be necessary to delegate management tasks to the machines themselves. The forensic systems and tools will need to execute activities that are currently performed by experts and investigators, in a fast and transparent way, with few or no mistakes. These will be the autonomic forensics: a new paradigm that defines the method of management. Hence, the main challenge of this work is to use autonomic computing to create this paradigm and apply it to computer forensic management.
