IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy
Co-Located Workshops

Two co-located workshops will be held in conjunction with the Symposium.

Systematic Approaches to Digital Forensic Engineering

The SADFE (Systematic Approaches to Digital Forensic Engineering) International Workshop promotes systematic approaches to computer science and engineering studies of security, privacy and data identification related to digital forensics and cyber crime investigation. It furthers the advancement of digital forensic engineering as a disciplined practice. Unlike ad-hoc computer forensics, digital forensic engineering is characterized by the application of scientific and mathematical principles to the investigation and establishment of facts (evidence) either for use within a court of law or to aid understanding of cyber crimes or cyber-enabled crimes and other security compromises involving computational systems. Advancing digital forensics engineering requires the expertise of computer scientists, computer engineers, analysts, and legal experts to produce sound computer systems and sound forensic practices which will meet the needs of courtroom presentation as well as minimizing negative effects on the cyber-system and people involved with them.
