Each chapter of this book is written by an internationally-renowned expert who has extensive experience in law enforcement, industry and academia.
The increasing popularity in the use of IoT devices for criminal activities means that there is a maturing discipline and industry around IoT forensics. As technology becomes cheaper and easier to deploy in an increased number of discrete, everyday objects, scope for the automated creation of personalised digital footprints becomes greater. Devices which are presently included within the Internet of Things (IoT) umbrella have a massive potential to enable and shape the way that humans interact and achieve objectives. These also forge a trail of data that can be used to triangulate and identify individuals and their actions. As such, interest and developments in autonomous vehicles, unmanned drones and ‘smart’ home appliances are creating unprecedented opportunities for the research communities to investigate the production and evaluation of evidence through the discipline of digital forensics.
