Internet is the most powerful medium as on date, facilitating varied services to numerous users. It has also become the environment for cyber warfare where attacks of many types (financial, ideological, revenge) are being launched. The ecommerce transactions being carried out online are of major interest to cybercriminals. The Internet needs to be protected from these attacks and an appropriate response has to be generated to handle them to reduce the impact. Network forensics is the science that deals with capture, recording, and analysis of network traffic for investigative purpose and incident response. There are many tools which assist in capturing data transferred over the networks so that an attack or the malicious intent of the intrusions may be investigated.
