DFRWS Challenge on Honeynet
The Digital Forensic
Research Workshop, or DFRWS, was initiated in August 2001 to bring academic
researchers and digital forensic investigators and practitioners together
for active discussion that addresses three major objectives:
Define the need
and create the processes for the incorporation of a rigorous scientific
method as a fundamental tenant of the evolving discipline of Digital Forensic
Develop a research
agenda that considers practitioner requirements, multiple investigative
environments and emphasizes real world usability
explanation and presentation of conclusive, persuasive evidence that will
meet the heightened scrutiny of the courts and other decision-makers in
military and civilian environments
To meet these objectives the DFRWS Mission Statement was drafted and covers the following items:
- Initiate a dynamic community of experts from academia and practice
- Promote scholarly discussion related to digital forensic research and its application
- Involve experienced analysts and examiners from law enforcement, military and civilian sectors
- Define core technologies that form a focus for useful research and development
- Establish and expand a common lexicon so the community speaks the same language
- Engage in regular debate and collaborative activity to ensure a sharp focus, high interest, and efficacy
center around the need to enhance and promote the application of the scientific
method in research and practice in Digital Forensic Science. As such,
efforts strive to discover, define, and foster fundamental scientific principles
that will support investigations of digital "wrongdoing" from all perspectives.
