Network forensics is a branch of forensic science concerned with the detection and retrieval of data related to a cybercrime in a networked environment. The collection, recording, and analysis of network events in order to determine the source of cyberattacks are common forensic tasks.
Web server logs, for example, can be utilised to determine when (or if) a suspect accessed information about illegal behaviour. Email accounts can often include useful evidence; however, because email headers are easily forged, network forensics can be used to establish the precise origin of damning content.
Digital forensics has a branch called network forensics. Network forensic investigations, unlike other fields of digital forensics, deal with volatile and dynamic data. Data at rest is the focus of disc or computer forensics.
In computer forensics, there are three c's.
The following are some examples of disciplines where digital forensic science is used: Computer forensics is the collection and analysis of digital data as digital evidence on computer systems and electronic storage media.
