Abstract

In these days, a number of illegal file sharers using BitTorrent increase. Sharing copyrighted files without copyright holder's permission is illegal, so they must be punished. However, it is difficult to find appropriate digital evidences and legal basis to punish them. This paper proposes the methodology about punishing illegal sharer using BitTorrent by suggesting the digital investigation framework. This framework consists of two parts. The first part is acquisition of data on network. In process of network analysis, the methodology to acquire and classify information about peers by analyzing packets is suggested. The second part is acquisition and analysis of data from suspect's PC. In process of suspects' PC analysis, the methodology to acquire meaningful evidences by finding traces of file sharing on suspects' PC is suggested.
