DDoS attacks are a hot topic at the moment, although a lot has already been written about them…

Hi,

How about going for Network Forensics?
This is hell a lot in this arena that has not been explored yet. I can help you out with some skilled partners. Let me know if you are interested.

Regards

There is an Announcement in this section of the board, here
http//www.forensicfocus.com/Forums/viewforum/f=5/
http//www.forensicfocus.com/Forums/viewtopic/t=6829/

Pointing to this
http//www.forensicfocus.com/project-ideas

The general idea is AFAICU that

  1. people interested in getting ideas for projects should first check it
  2. people actually having the ideas should submit them to Jamie (so that they can be added there)
  3. [/listo]

Hello All,

I am in Europe as a Forensic Examiner, and since I already have my masters, I am now going for my Ph.D, which I have selected to go through Darmstadt Technical University, Germany, my topic is on Data Reduction from a Forensic's standpoint. Meaning, I have to come up with a process to eliminate big data problems to find the "bad files" in the hay stack. I have read a few journals on this topic and most have the same issues. I am developing my PhD proposal on this topic and have found three main themes with creating a process.

Scalability
Automation
Visualization

My question to the forum, is I would like to hone in on specific methodologies, and if someone already knows methodologies please list them below. I realize Encase/FTK and most tools do some type of data reduction. Lets collaborate.

Thanks,

Eric

Dear all

Hi, my name is Divakar. I am currently working n Cyber forensic domain in an IT firm and planning to pursue Ph.D in same domain to increase my knowledge plus get more indulged in research part of forensics.

But I am not able to decide which part should I choose as Cyber Forensic itself is a very huge domain. Can you please suggest me any topic to go through so it can become easy for me to decide as soon as possible.

Thank you and waiting for your response.

First, check with the universities where you may go for this thesis work what is required to be accepted as a student. What prior exams do you need? In general, a bachelor's degree is required, but there may be additional requirements, such as masters degree? Do you fulfil those requirements? (I have no idea – ask your local resources and institutions for help on this. Added https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doctor_of_Philosophy#India may help.)

Next, doctoral studies take time – what time is the minimum in your particular areas? In some places, a doctoral work is estimated to 2-3 years full time courses, followed by at least 1 year of full-time research. Do you have that time? Do you have the money?

Deciding what exactly to research is usually worked out during those years of studies – discussions with professor or course tutor, with fellow students, and possibly with interested companies or institutions.

Where are you, right now? At the very beginning? Go find a student advisor – say, at a local university – and discuss how you best get to where you want to be.

If you're already registering for doctoral studies, you should not need to know exactly what area your thesis will address. Just make something up. You will almost certainly be able to change your mind.

If you're getting towards the end of your studies, and still don't know … you probably have thrown your time away.

For my Master's Thesis I wrote about the legalities involved in allowing companies to hack back when attack (I termed it a Cyber Stand Your Ground law). Seems it got some traction as of late…

The last one I did was on Risk Analysis/Assessment of BYOD/BYOL into an enterprise environment. Was a fun one!
