Peter Kieseberg at the Security Forum 2016

Next we want to introduce Peter Kieseberg, who is talking about the topic Directions in Database Forensics. His talk will be held in english. Read the abstract here:

Nowadays, most sensitive information is stored in some kind of database, still, database forensics has been rather neglected throughout the last years. In this talk we provide an overview on recent results concerning database forensics, especially considering new approaches and techniques. While most approaches will be presented on an abstract level in order to carve out the fundamental principles, we will use MySQL together with the InnoDB storage engine for illustration. The topics covered in this talk mainly focus on the utilization of internal database mechanism in order to mitigate attacks carried out by users possessing administrator privileges on the respective database.
