Research Area:  Digital Forensics
The Internet of Things (IoT) has become an indispensable technology fragment diurnal that has consolidated all the discrete systems and data into a coherent and interconnected process. With the advent of cutting-edge technologies providing meticulous solutions, the digital world still lacks the existence of propitious capabilities for IoT digital forensics. As such, an exceptional increase in the number of electronic devices, enormous collection and consumption of data has necessitated the need for IoT forensics when it comes to cybercrimes. In this paper, we provide a summary of the difference between IoT and conventional digital forensic processes. In addition, we list three categories of IoT-related computer crimes. Furthermore, we group several contributions and case studies that are IoT-specific when it comes to digital investigations. Our results reveal the gap and pinpoint initiatives towards smart equipment forensics such as smartwatches, smart TVs, among others.
