Ethical hacking and digital forensics



In order to strengthen security of systems and services, specific analysis and evaluation tools should be deployed in the target environment. In this line, ethical hacking and digital forensics constitute well-known topics aimed at testing and recovering systems and services. Some specific aspects addressed by NESG in this area are:

    - Development of new ethical hacking methodologies
    - Techniques for network and system fingerprinting
    - Exploitation techniques and their countermeasures
    - Ethical Hacking capabilities training
    - Reverse engineering and malware analysis
    - Privacy mechanisms
    - Tools and methodologies for digital forensics
