ADSL Router Forensics Part 1: An introduction to a new source of electronic evidence

  title={ADSL Router Forensics Part 1: An introduction to a new source of electronic evidence},
  author={Patryk Szewczyk},
Currently there appears to be a lack of research in the area of developing tools, testing methodologies, and creating standards for ADSL router forensics. The paper examines a wide range of literature and introduces the concept of ADSL router forensics as a new and potential field of research for digital forensics investigators. It begins by examining why there is a need for router forensics by detailing some of the more common threats which consumers may experience while online. An outline… Expand
