4411 - Applying Graph Theory to Digital Forensics Investigations
Monday, September 25
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
This talk is the culmination of two years of research on how to use graph theory to model digital crimes/breaches and to gain a clear understanding of the facts in a digital investigation. This methodology allows cybercrime investigators to mathematically model a crime and to then evaluate the elements of that crime. A rudimentary version of this was presented at a 2016 security conference in Dallas and published in last November's Forensic Examiner. The method has been expanded and refined with further research, and the very latest developments in this field will be presented in this talk. This is cutting-edge research in applications of mathematics to digital forensics.
The presentation will enable attendees with even a moderate mathematical background to apply this research to digital investigations.
- Understand the essentials of graph theory and apply that to digital investigations.
- Mathematically model any digital investigation, even for those attendees with moderate mathematical backgrounds.
- Demonstrate to juries the mathematical relationships between suspects and elements in a cybercrime.
