Abstract

This paper introduces a study on utilizing 802.11 client device traces for forensic purposes. The passive nature in which these traces can be collected presents a number of opportunities to the digital investigator. However, a forensically sound system must exhibit certain attributes not necessarily present in existing open-source tools that employ the associated collection techniques. Additional legal implications and difficulties in linking wireless devices back to their owners present a challenging research area.
