Overview of this book

We live in a highly networked world. Every digital device—phone, tablet, or computer is connected to each other, in one way or another. In this new age of connected networks, there is network crime. Network forensics is the brave new frontier of digital investigation and information security professionals to extend their abilities to catch miscreants on the network. The book starts with an introduction to the world of network forensics and investigations. You will begin by getting an understanding of how to gather both physical and virtual evidence, intercepting and analyzing network data, wireless data packets, investigating intrusions, and so on. You will further explore the technology, tools, and investigating methods using malware forensics, network tunneling, and behaviors. By the end of the book, you will gain a complete understanding of how to successfully close a case.

About the Reviewers


This final chapter sums up our journey in developing an understanding of network forensics. Along the way, we have seen myriad sources of evidence, artifacts created by attacker activities, as well as techniques and processes required to acquire and analyze them. You have learned how to put a report together to present our findings and also act upon your learning's from the investigation.

While this book acts as a starting point and helps in building a foundation in the network forensics area, remember that it is a big world out there and there is no end to the knowledge that one can and should gather as we boldly proceed forward in this field.

Thanks for being a part of this journey. I hope that it has been an interesting one and that I have been successful in kindling your interest in a very exciting new field.
