Cyber forensics and threat investigations has rapidly emerged as a new field of research to provide the key elements for maintaining security, reliability, and trustworthiness of the next generation of emerging technologies such as the internet of things, cyber-physical systems, cloud/edge/fog computing, software- defined network, and network function virtualization. Complicated efforts are required in suitable and timely manners against any threats detected within these systems. Moreover, new frameworks are required to collect and preserve potential evidential data in suitable and timely manners as well. To guarantee proper cyber-defenses and strategies against the expanding landscape of criminal activities as well as rapidly advancing emerging technologies.
The main motivation for this Workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners working on cyber forensics and threat investigations for emerging infrastructures to disseminate current research issues and advances. Original technical papers describing new, state-of-the-art research, will be considered. The Workshop welcomes submissions that evaluate existing research results by reproducing experiments. The aim of this workshop is to provide insight for the discussion of the major research challenges and achievements on various topics of interest.
