Mobile device forensics is a branch of digital forensics relating to recovery of digital evidence or data from a mobile device under forensically sound conditions. The phrase mobile device usually refers to mobile phones; however, it can also relate to any digital device that has both internal memory and communication ability, including PDA devices, GPS […]
Network forensics is a sub-branch of digital forensics relating to the monitoring and analysis of computer network traffic for the purposes of information gathering, legal evidence, or intrusion detection. Unlike other areas of digital forensics, network investigations deal with volatile and dynamic information.
Cloud Forensics & Security Cloud forensics is the application of digital forensics in cloud computing as a subset of network forensics. Basically, it is a cross-discipline between cloud computing and digital forensics. As per the official definition of NIST: “Digital Forensics is the application of science to the identification, examination, collection, and analysis of data […]
“Memory forensics is forensic analysis of a computer’s memory dump. Its primary application is investigation of advanced computer attacks which are stealthy enough to avoid leaving data on the computer’s hard drive. Consequently, the memory(RAM) must be analyzed for forensic information.” In today’s forensics cases, it is just as critical to understand memory structures as […]
