The Internet of Things, Challenges Forensics Introduction Today’s growing definition for IoT may include cameras, thermostats, jet engines, and even autonomous vehicles (Government Accountability Office, 2017). As IoT devices integrate into everyday life, the list defining inclusion of an IoT device grows unobserved, without individuals even noticing (Venčkauskas, Toldinas, Grigaliūnas, Damaševičius, & Jusas, 2015). Some IoT devices include skin conductance sensors, GPS, accelerometers, and other sensors that can generate and mass quantities of information that could benefit investigations (Meffert, Clark, Baggili, & Breitinger, 2017). The U.S. Government Accountability Office released a report in May of 2017, to give a short list of…show more content…
A live acquisition of data occurs in the field or remotely and can yield potential vital evidence in the RAM if the forensic examiner is quick to identify the IoT devices on the scene (Ali, Othman, Mohammad, & Saeed, 2017). Jusas, Birvinskas, & Gahramanov (2017) gave a thorough and comprehensive review of models and methods of live triage ranging from theoretical framework to current processes in use by law enforcement. Many of the models and methods mention aspects that may apply to part of live triage for IoT devices, but IoT live acquisitions are not specific to one method or model (Jusas et al., 2017). In 2006, Adelstein’s approach to digital forensics expresses the importance of utilizing live digital forensic techniques to perform a “snapshot” of the system’s state (p.64). This concept recognizes the challenge regarding the need to gather potential data in an efficient manner to evade the loss of time to gather potential evidence (Adelstein, 2006). As a technology develops, a recognition of current techniques and plan to scale that method to encompass the new technology is a smooth transition but not always possible (Oriwoh, Jazani, Epiphaniou, & Sant, 2013). When a developing technology cross clearly defined areas, challenges are bound to arise (Lillis et al., 2016). Challenges Snell & Lee (2015) states that the IoT fuses “a worldwide network involving interconnected and
