Applying Graph Theory to Digital Forensics

Speaker:  Chuck Easttom – Plano, TX, United States
Topic(s):  Computational Theory, Algorithms and Mathematics


Graph theory is an area of discrete mathematics that is used to model the relationships between entities. Previously, graph theory has been used to model network traffic, biological systems, and social interaction.  There have been applications of graph theory to modeling social relationships in intelligence gathering situations.  This lecture describes the fundamentals of graph theory, then describes how to apply those to digital forensic investigations. A complete methodology for modeling a digital forensic investigation is presented, along with suggestions for further research.
