This paper reviews peer-reviewed empirical studies on gamification. We create a framework for examining the effects of gamification by drawing from the definitions of gamification and the discussion on motivational affordances. The literature review covers results, independent variables (examined motivational affordances), dependent variables (examined psychological/behavioral outcomes from gamification), the contexts of gamification, and types of studies performed on the gamified systems. The paper examines the state of current research on the topic and points out gaps in existing literature. The review indicates that gamification provides positive effects, however, the effects are greatly dependent on the context in which the gamification is being implemented, as well as on the users using it. The findings of the review provide insight for further studies as well as for the design of gamified systems.

Network and Digital Forensics provide information about electronic activity in new, sometimes unprecedented forms. These new forms offer new, powerful tactical tools for investigations of electronic malfeasance when incorporated under traditional legal regulation of state power, particular that of Fourth Amendment limitations on police searches and seizures under the U.S. Constitution. These tactical tools raise issues of public policy and privacy that may raise concerns about the proper police oversight of civil society. How those issues are resolved will define personal privacy, autonomy and dignity in the 21st digital century.

Network forensics is an extension of the network security model which traditionally emphasizes prevention and detection of network attacks. It addresses the need for dedicated investigative capabilities in the current model to allow investigating malicious behavior in networks. It helps organizations in investigating outside and inside network attacks. It is also important for law enforcement investigations. In this paper, various aspects of network forensics are reviewed as well as related technologies and their limitations. Also, challenges in deploying a network forensics infrastructure are highlighted.

There are no general frameworks with which we may analyze the anti-forensics situation. Solving anti-forensic issues requires that we create a consensus view of the problem itself. This paper attempts to arrive at a standardized method of addressing anti-forensics by defining the term, categorizing the anti-forensics techniques and outlining general guidelines to protect forensic integrity.

The process of using automated software has served law enforcement and the courts very well, and experienced detectives and investigators have been able to use their well-developed policing skills, in conjunction with the automated software, so as to provide sound evidence. However, the growth in the computer forensic field has created a demand for new software (or increased functionality to existing software) and a means to verify that this software is truly “forensic” i.e. capable of meeting the requirements of the ‘trier of fact’. In this work, we present a scientific and systemical description of the computer forensic discipline through mapping fundamental functions required in the computer forensic investigation process. Based on the function mapping, we propose a more detailed functionality orientated validation and verification framework of computer forensic tools. We focus this paper on the searching function. We specify the requirements and develop a corresponding reference set to test any tools that possess the searching function.

While many fields have well-defined education agendas, this is not the case for digital forensics. A unique characteristic of the evolution of digital forensics is that it has been largely driven by practitioners in the field. As a result, the majority of the educational experiences have been developed in response to identified weaknesses in the system or to train individuals on the use of a specific tool or technique, rather than as a result of educational needs assessments based on an accepted common body of knowledge. In June, 2008 a group of digital forensics researchers, educators and practitioners met as a working group at the Colloquium for Information Systems Security Education (CISSE 2008) to brainstorm ideas for the development of a research, education, and outreach agenda for Digital Forensics. This paper presents the research in education needs that the group identified associated with the development of a digital forensics education agenda.
