Abstract -
Crimes in this digital world are of different types and the one among is Cyber-crime. As everything is digitized, there is rapid increase in use of internet and at the same time more number of cyber-crimes happens that raised by the attackers. Some of the cyber-attacks are hacking, banking frauds, and email spamming etc. In order to investigate these fraudulent activities, the investigation agencies (enforcement law) should make use of technology which is a crucial part. Digital forensic investigation is a branch of cyber forensics in which scientific methods and tools are used ,that allows the prevention and analysis of digital evidence, that to be produced in a court of law. This paper explores the detailed explanation of existing digital forensics tools and its uses which assists to probe the evidence.
