Digital forensics is a young but quickly evolving discipline. Borrowing via principles which have proven themselves in the physical world, it faces issues that are one of a kind to the cyberspace domain (Caloyannides, Memon, & Venema, 2009). Digital forensics has grown via a relatively obscure tradecraft for an important element of many research (Garfinkel, 2010). Garfinkel continued to say that digital forensic tools are now used on every day basis by examiners and experts within regional, state and federal police; within the army and other US government agencies; and inside the private e-Discovery industry. Vacca (2009) defined digital forensics as, " the application of computer science and investigative methods for a legal purpose involving the analysis of digital evidenceвЂќ (p. 305). According to Caloyannides, Memon, & Venema, (2009), gadgets have slowly and gradually but unavoidably become record keepers of human activity. This trend quicker with the advantages of Computers, handheld products, the Internet, plus the convergence of computing, multimedia system, and telecoms (Caloyannides ainsi que al. ). Digital forensics as a discipline can be broken into two subfields: network forensics and host-based forensics (Vacca, 2009). Vacca stated that network forensics focused on the usage of captured network traffic and session details to investigate criminal offenses whereas host-based forensics dedicated to the collection and analysis of digital facts from specific systems. Digital forensics is now prevalent since modern day existence includes a number of digital gadgets that can be exploited for legal activity, not only computer systems (Reith, Carr, & Gunsch, 2002).
