Organizations increasingly rely on the Internet for their operations. Although the use of this technology provides many advantages, the Internet poses a unique set of vulnerabilities. Security attacks, such as worm and virus attacks, ID theft, and espionage, are examples of threats encountered daily by various institutions. Against this backdrop, it is clear that security is one of the most important IT concerns today.

Security forensics is a discipline to identify the attackers and document their activity with sufficient reliability to justify appropriate technical, business, and legal responses. The discipline involves identification, preservation and analysis of evidence of security attacks. Forensic activity takes place in a complex technical, legal, and social context which must be understood to fully appreciate its power and value. This talk will provide an overview of security forensics and addresses some of the technological and legal issues involved. A few simple forensic tools will be demonstrated.
