Wireless forensics is a sub-discipline of network forensics. The main goal of wireless forensics is to provide the methodology and tools required to collect and analyze (wireless) network traffic that can be presented as valid digital evidence in a court of law. The evidence collected can correspond to plain data or, with the broad usage of Voice-over-IP (VoIP) technologies, especially over wireless, can include voice conversations. In short, Wireless forensics is the process of capturing information that moves over a wireless network and trying to make sense of it in some kind of forensics capacity.
Analysis of wireless network traffic is similar to that on wired networks, however there may be the added consideration of wireless security measures.
With the global trend toward wireless, and the implementing of 5G networks and higher in the future, wireless network become more and more important, since 5G network require wireless network offloading. And more and more mobile device users is wireless to telco network, and connect time to time for various hotspot and wireless network.
One of the key challenge for wireless network is “wireless” radio frequency, spectrum data that normal wired solution do not understand and can not be “visibility” show, so will not effective for perform wireless forensics. As such it may required wireless specific solution in place for cover and address this domain of rising need.
Feel free to contact E-SPIN for various wireless forensics, traffic visibility and packet understanding, collecting, analyzing and visualize those wireless landscape for effective management.
