          Second IFIP NTMS International Workshop on

    Cybercrime Investigation and Digital forensics (CID2018)

                  in conjunction with NTMS 2018

              26 to 28 February 2018. Paris, France ============================================================

The purpose of the workshop is to explore the challenges faced by researchers, practitioners, and non technical professionals in the area of digital and cybercrime investigation. This workshop will provide a forum for law enforcement, judiciary and industry to share their problems and challenges with people from academia and industry for possible solution to meet their needs. This will promote collaboration between industry, academia and R&D and will help the collaborating partners to benefit from each other's resources and expertise in the domain.

The workshop will include talks and tutorials on innovative tools and techniques such as state-of- the-art software and hardware solutions, theories and algorithms, experimental results, and formal and mathematical models.


The unprecedented increase in online crimes including identify theft, phishing and social engineering attacks has increased the need for digital forensics. Digital forensics aimed to collect, analyze, and present digital evidence to prosecute cybercriminals in the court of law. Digital forensics is becoming more challenging due to tremendous increase in ubiquities computing, emergence of new technologies such as cloud computing and with influx of plethora of smart devices. Finding potential evidence related to a crime is no more an issue due to availability of network logs, chat logs, web forums, emails and social networking posts. The challenge is to precisely analyze large volumes of data in timely manner and collect forensic evidence related to crimes being investigated.

Digital forensics is employed for fraud detection, homeland security, financial scams investigation and for revealing discrepancies in business transactions. The increased computing power, storage capability and the development of innovative machine learning and data analytics techniques are playing a vital role in digital forensics. New legislation and revising exiting laws to adequately cover the new online crimes is imperative. The workshop is covering, but not limited to, the  following topics.

- Forensic processes and procedures

- Digital Forensic: challenges and common practices

- Big Data in digital forensics

- Network and log forensics

- Memory forensics

- Flash and physical memory forensics

- Software and hardware forensic tools

- Anonymity and authorship forensics

- Small-scale digital devices forensics

- Smart toy and gaming console forensics

- Messaging forensics

- Anti-Forensic and steganography

- Cloud forensics: technical, jurisdiction and legal challenges

- Digital forensics and cybercrime laws

- Role of Big Data in forensic analysis

- IoT forensics

- Drone forensics

- Cybercrime laws and procedures

- Digital forensics and social crimes

- Digital forensics and financial crimes including money laundering

- Digital forensics and cyber stalking and cyberbullying

- Digital forensics and homeland security

- Digital forensics and operating systems platforms and file system

- Digital crimes and international laws
