Internet of Things (IoT) Forensics: Challenges and Opportunities

Speaker:  Kim-Kwang Raymond Choo – San Antonio, TX, United States
Topic(s):  Security and Privacy


Internet of Things (IoT) devices are becoming commonplace in our society, due to their widespread applications (e.g., environmental monitoring, smart cities, healthcare, surveillance, and battlefields such as Internet of Battlefield Things). Such devices are also generally capable of capturing a broad range of information, including digital artefacts that can facilitate a digital investigation during a cyber security incident (e.g., data breach). While IoT devices are potential evidence acquisition sources, there are a number of challenges associated with IoT forensics and investigations as discussed in this presentation. We also identify a number of opportunities, which hopefully will help to shape future research agenda on IoT forensics. For example, we posit the importance of having a digital forensic black-box, conceptually similar to the cockpit voice recorder (also known as a flight recorder) on aircrafts, to facilitate digital investigations.
