Network Forensics


What is Network Forensics?

Network Forensics is the investigation of network traffic and information gathered in transit between computer systems. It has the ability to reveal the source and scope of an attack

Understanding Protocols

Understanding network protocols is vital to recognise attack trends to monitor network events

Proprietary Tools

We have tools and experts helping in investigating cybercrime and providing conclusions


Some Common Network Attacks ATTACKS

In today’s age of digitalization, there are several malicious network attacks that the public engages in. These attacks are unlawful and can further harm digital networking platforms.

Packet sniffing

IP spoofing



Eaves Dropping

Unlawful method of monitoring unprotected links to get personal data

IP Spoofing

Allows unrestricted access to computers by sending messages using IP addresses

Packet Sniffing

An act of collecting network traffic to get sensitive information such as passwords


Process of collecting data about a network that may be used to attack it


Importance of Network Forensics

CryptoMize knows the importance of Network Forensics, including the huge amount of data flow and the complexity of Internet protocols, capturing network traffic is simple in theory but challenging in practise
  • Time and effort tracing network traffic is tricky. It may be difficult to get all the network data. This necessitates a free recording medium
  • Network Forensics is required in order to identify the kind of network attack and track down the perpetrator
  • A good investigative method is required to present evidence in court. It also aids in determining the causes of network failures

Sources of Network Forensics

In order to rectify, you must first identify the problem, then collect and analyse data, then decide on the appropriate repair approach and put it into action

Generally, Examination of two types of sources is done in the field of network forensics.

Full-Packet Data Capture

Full-Packet Capture has the advantage of identifying the content of data being sent, as well as its meaning and value

Log files

It is used when suspicious behaviour is identified. Choosing a packet-capture to collect traffic from impacted devices is critical

Valued Services


Packet Sniffing

Our Network Forensics Investigators use packet sniffing tools to monitor and verify network traffic for best results


Threat Detection

We perform actions to fully-exploit network vulnerabilities aiming to compromise or damage business data


Network Log Analysis

Tracks authentication attempts and application designers to specify the data in a log, and then implement it


Packet Sniffing

In a computer network, a packet is the smallest unit of communication that may be sent. A packet may also be referred to as a block, a segment, a datagram, or simply a datagram
Packet Sniffing is the term used to describe the act of gathering data packets from across a computer network. It's the same as hacking into a phone network's wires and stealing
When packet data is being transmitted across a network, packet sniffing techniques are used to detect and monitor the data as it moves across the network
CryptoMize’s Network Forensic Investigators use this to monitor and verify network traffic, to investigate the network traffic to figure out potential threats during the investigation

How CryptoMize can help?

The capacity to comprehend the data contained in log and capture files, as well as to detect malicious behaviour within the data, is a specialised talent that necessitates extensive knowledge of network and application protocol architecture.
Before an attack occurs, businesses can take precautions to ensure that network-based forensic investigations are successful. In order to assist you, CryptoMize can perform the three actions listed below.

Process in Place

It needs access to log and capture files as well as formalize event-logging rules

Make a Plan

It will help the company respond to and mitigate cyber attacks

Acquire the Talent

Detecting malicious activity requires interpreting log and capture files

Network Threat Detection

  • Network Threats are unlawful or destructive activities that attempt to take advantage of network flaws
  • Networks are also targeted by malicious attacks in order to gain unauthorised access and manipulate them for their own gain
  • Threat Detection is one of the three fundamental cybersecurity responsibilities, along with prevention and response
  • Risk reduction requires prevention, yet determined opponents will always defeat prevention
  • CryptoMize offers Network Threat Detection to help with the investigation process

Network Log Analysis

Almost all information technology systems generate a log, which records all system activities. Computer platforms (servers, appliances, and smartphones), operating systems (Windows, Linux, IoS), and programmes (client/server, web apps, cloud-based utilities) all generate logs.
  • A Network Log is a file in an application that keeps track of what occurred during the program's execution. It maintains track of objects accessed by users and processes, as well as authentication attempts and other events.
  • A mistake, a warning, or an instructive action may all be characterised as an event. To meet various application requirements, the application designer typically defines the format and data in a log, and then the application developer implements it.
  • Logs can be incredibly long and include a tremendous deal of information at times, so be careful when reading them. In an attempt to conserve as many lines as possible, the lines would become incoherent if they were all kept.


Our Featured Service Offering Categories

Network Forensics is the technique of capturing, recording, and analysing network packets to identify the source of network security threats.
Identification, Preservation, Collection, Examination, Analysis, and Presentation, as well as Incident Response, are the seven stages of a network forensics investigation.
By collecting, recording, and analysing network traffic and audit files, Network Forensics aims to determine the causes and consequences of cyber attacks Network Forenisc Analysis is capable of monitoring user activity, business transactions, and system performance as well as helping to classify zero-day attacks.
Administrators may use Network Forensic Analysis Tools (NFATs) to monitor their network for unusual activity, conduct forensic analysis, and obtain a comprehensive picture of their environment. It focuses on SilentRunner, NetIntercept, and NetDetector to have a better understanding of the tool.
Capturing and analysing packets necessitates the use of network sniffing and packet analysis tools. Wireshark, Aircrack-ng, WebScarab, ngrep, NetworkMiner, Kismet, and eMailTrackerPro are some of the tools mentioned. The purpose of network scanning is to determine which hosts are active in the network.
Web server logs, for example, may be utilised to demonstrate when (or whether) a suspect viewed criminal activity-related material. Email accounts may frequently include valuable evidence; however, since email headers are readily forged, Network Forensics can be used to establish the precise origin of damning information. By extracting user account information from network traffic, Network Forensics may also be used to determine who is using a certain machine.
