DFRWS 2018 Challenge Overview
The DFRWS 2018 challenge is about Internet of Things (IoT), defined generally to include network and Internet connected devices usually for the purpose of monitoring and automation tasks. Consumer-grade “Smart” devices are increasing in popularity and scope. These devices and the data they collect are potentially interesting for digital investigations, but also come with a number of new investigation challenges.
This challenge seeks to advance the state-of-the-art in IoT forensics by focusing the community’s attention on this emerging domain. DFRWS Forensic Challenges are open to all participants and are designed to be accessible at multiple skill levels. Some answers will be accessible to participants with basic digital forensic skills, and more advanced elements are included. Examples of previous forensic challenge submissions, including the grand prize winners, are available https://github.com/dfrws/dfrws2017-challenge.
