Advances in Digital Forensics X

Author: Gilbert Peterson
Publisher: Springer
ISBN: 9783662449523
Release Date: 2014-10-09
Genre: Computers

Digital forensics deals with the acquisition, preservation, examination, analysis and presentation of electronic evidence. Networked computing, wireless communications and portable electronic devices have expanded the role of digital forensics beyond traditional computer crime investigations. Practically every crime now involves some aspect of digital evidence; digital forensics provides the techniques and tools to articulate this evidence. Digital forensics also has myriad intelligence applications. Furthermore, it has a vital role in information assurance -- investigations of security breaches yield valuable information that can be used to design more secure systems. Advances in Digital Forensics X describes original research results and innovative applications in the discipline of digital forensics. In addition, it highlights some of the major technical and legal issues related to digital evidence and electronic crime investigations. The areas of coverage include: - Internet Crime Investigations; - Forensic Techniques; - Mobile Device Forensics; - Forensic Tools and Training. This book is the 10th volume in the annual series produced by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) Working Group 11.9 on Digital Forensics, an international community of scientists, engineers and practitioners dedicated to advancing the state of the art of research and practice in digital forensics. The book contains a selection of twenty-two edited papers from the 10th Annual IFIP WG 11.9 International Conference on Digital Forensics, held in Vienna, Austria in the winter of 2014. Advances in Digital Forensics X is an important resource for researchers, faculty members and graduate students, as well as for practitioners and individuals engaged in research and development efforts for the law enforcement and intelligence communities.

Applications of Data Mining in Computer Security

Author: Daniel Barbará
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9781461509530
Release Date: 2012-12-06
Genre: Computers

Data mining is becoming a pervasive technology in activities as diverse as using historical data to predict the success of a marketing campaign, looking for patterns in financial transactions to discover illegal activities or analyzing genome sequences. From this perspective, it was just a matter of time for the discipline to reach the important area of computer security. Applications Of Data Mining In Computer Security presents a collection of research efforts on the use of data mining in computer security. Applications Of Data Mining In Computer Security concentrates heavily on the use of data mining in the area of intrusion detection. The reason for this is twofold. First, the volume of data dealing with both network and host activity is so large that it makes it an ideal candidate for using data mining techniques. Second, intrusion detection is an extremely critical activity. This book also addresses the application of data mining to computer forensics. This is a crucial area that seeks to address the needs of law enforcement in analyzing the digital evidence.

Genre: Business & Economics

In today’s wireless environment, marketing is more frequently occurring at the server-to-device level—with that device being anything from a laptop or phone to a TV or car. In this real-time digital marketplace, human attributes such as income, marital status, and age are not the most reliable attributes for modeling consumer behaviors. A more effective approach is to monitor and model the consumer’s device activities and behavioral patterns. Machine-to-Machine Marketing (M3) via Anonymous Advertising Apps Anywhere Anytime (A5) examines the technologies, software, networks, mechanisms, techniques, and solution providers that are shaping the next generation of mobile advertising. Discussing the interactive environments that comprise the web, it explains how to deploy Machine-to-Machine Marketing (M3) and Anonymous Advertising Apps Anywhere Anytime (A5). The book is organized into four sections: Why – Discusses the interactive environments and explains how M3 can be deployed How – Describes which technologies and solution providers can be used for executing M3 Checklists – Contains lists of techniques, strategies, technologies, and solution providers for M3 Case Studies – Illustrates M3 and A5 implementations in companies across various industries Providing wide-ranging coverage that touches on data mining, the web, social media, marketing, and mobile communications, the book’s case studies show how M3 and A5 are being implemented at JP Morgan Chase, Hyundai, Dunkin’ Donuts, New York Life, Twitter, Best Buy, JetBlue, IKEA, Urban Outfitters, JC Penney, Sony, eHarmony, and NASCAR just to name a few. These case studies provide you with the real-world insight needed to market effectively and profitably well into the future.

Genre: Business & Economics

In the past few years, intelligence and security informatics (ISI) research, which is concerned with the study of the development and use of advanced information te- nologies and systems for national and international security-related applications, has experienced tremendous growth and attracted substantial interest from academic - searchers in related fields as well as practitioners from both government agencies and industry. The ISI community is maturing, and a core set of research methodologies and technical approaches has emerged and is becoming the underpinning of ISI research. The first two meetings (ISI 2003 and ISI 2004) in the ISI symposium and conf- ence series were held in Tucson, Arizona. With sponsorship by the IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Society, ISI 2005 was held in Atlanta, Georgia. Building on the momentum of these ISI meetings, we held ISI 2006 in San Diego, California, in May 2006. In addition to the established and emerging ISI technical research topics, ISI 2006 included a track on terrorism informatics, which is a new stream of terrorism research leveraging the latest advances in social science methodologies, and infor- tion technologies and tools.
