Computational Intelligence in Digital Data Processing and Evidence Analysis

Abstract, objectives, and motivation

Digital forensic investigation methods use evidence found in digital computers, mobile phones, network logs, CCTV cameras, etc. The events of interest are usually buried within tens of thousands of alerts and events. Further the evidence may be in various formats and coming from diverse sources. To establish proof of a cybercrime admissible in a court of law, this large volume and variety of evidence need to be preserved, analysed, and correlated to establish a crime. Traditional forensic tools rely on methods designed to process structured information rather than unstructured data. Often evidence gathered through one source is incomplete, noisy, or corrupt and adds more difficulty to establish an event using such conventional tools. This incomplete and/or noisy evidence can be enriched with another supplementary source of event sequence/logs/threat intelligence. Correlation of events and assessments in the event of incomplete information is a necessary requirement of threat intelligence. Further, these methods need to handle both structured and unstructured data.

Intended Audience

This proposed workshop is a half-day workshop to be held along with IEEE ANTS 2021. The workshop aims to bring researchers/experts around the world together to explore and discuss the state-of-the-art research and local initiatives in the areas of digital forensics. The workshop will include invited speakers from subject experts. Topics of interest include, but not limited to:

  • Event Correlation and Log Analysis
  • Face Detection and User Identification
  • Cyber Bullying and Cyber Staking
  • Video Footage Quality Enhancement
  • Fingerprint Matching
  • Social Media Analysis for Threat Intelligence
  • Data Recovery from Corrupted Media
  • Automatic Detection of Signatures
  • Data Recovery from Encrypted Disk

Guidelines for submitting expression of interest
