Aims and scope
Journal of Cyber-Security, Digital and Computer Forensics is an international refereed journal publishes quarterly online open access by KMF that focuses on the advancement of the field by publishing the state of the art in both basic and applied research conducted worldwide. We purposefully chose to use the word cyber in our tagline, instead of digital to emphasize the cyber culture surrounding computing, and the word cyber also extends itself beyond the technical domain of computing. The Journal’s main aims are to open up the landscape for innovation and discussion, and to continuously bridge the gap between the science and practice of cyber forensics, security and law. This journal encourages both scientists and practitioners to share their discoveries and experiences. The journal is a knowledge resource for practitioners of digital investigation, digital forensic science, electronic fraud investigation, and cyber crime and cyber terror investigation and analysis. Articles in the Journal are focused on applied issues and advancing knowledge through research with clear practical implications. The articles, targeting both the public and private sectors, present useful information, techniques, and unbiased reviews designed to assist digital investigative and forensic professionals in day-to-day practice. The journal scope covers the following areas (but not limited to): cyber security, computer forensics, privacy, trust, hacking techniques, cyber warfare, cryptography, cybercrime, cyber-terrorism, cryptography, formal methods application in security and forensics, data piracy, database security and forensics, wired and wireless network security and investigation, mobile network security and forensics, incident handling, malware forensics and steganography.
