Research Institution
Not Available As cyber criminals become more wiley and sophisticated, it becomes necessary to upgrade and improve the tools needed to track and identify them. Consequently, this proposal addresses research needed to prove the feasibility and implement a prototype of a Binary Insertion Tool for Computer Forensics Toolkits. This tool will unobtrusively insert a piece of programing code into an existing program. An insertion of this kind will aid in the identifying and tracking of computer criminals by: (I) inserting tracking code into a hacker toolkit that will emit e-mail back to an investigator's account when the toolkit is reactivated, therefore identifying the hacker's activities and whereabouts; (ii) inserting a tagging virus into a program that, when dowloaded by a hacker, will tag his machine, therefore creating a concrete piece of physical evidence; and (iii) inserting a tagging virus into a hacker toolkit to identify which files, machines, or systems he invades.
