Network Forensic Audit
Network forensics is related to the monitoring and analysis of network traffic for the purposes of information gathering, legal evidence, or intrusion detection. Unlike other areas, network investigations deal with volatile and dynamic information.
Network forensics is capture, recording and analysis of network packets in order to determine the source of network security attacks. The major goal of network forensics is to collect evidence. It tries to analyze network traffic data, which is collected from different sites and different network equipment, such as firewalls and IDS. In addition, it monitors on the network to detect attacks and analyze the nature of attackers. Network forensics is also the process of detecting intrusion patterns, focusing on attacker activity.
