The Digital Forensic Research Workshop (DFRWS) is a non-profit, volunteer organization, located in U.S.A. and dedicated to the sharing of knowledge and ideas about digital forensics research. DFRWS has a long history of being the foremost digital forensics research venue and has decided to hold a sister conference to bring the same opportunities to Europe.

The sixth annual conference will take place in Oslo, Norway on 24th-26th April 2019. The EVIDENCE2e-CODEX Project representatives will actively participated in the Conference discussions on electronic evidence exchange, by

Participating in a dedicated CASE Workshop: CASE is an international open-source and community-developed ontology/specification language that aims at covering this gap in the most inclusive manner possible. Work on what eventually became CASE began in 2015 and the project now involves over two dozen public organizations. It derives from UCO and is thus formally cited as CASE/UCO. UCO is intended to allow compatibility between CASE and other preexisting ontologies/schemas. However, unlike prior domain-specific specifications like Structured Threat Information Expression (STIX) and Digital Forensics Analysis eXpression (DFAX), CASE attempts to bring domains together, including incident response, counter-terrorism, criminal justice, forensics, intelligence, and situational awareness. This will enable better workflow efficiencies in laboratories, cross-correlation between investigations under different jurisdictions, potentially on the same malicious actors, and a more aware view of criminal patterns. More on the use of CASE in the EVIDENCE2e-CODEX developments can be found here.

Presenting during Day 3 on "Advancing the Exchange of Cyber-Investigation Information Between Organizations and Across Borders Using CASE" presenting the EVIDENCE2e-CODEX advancements in the field.
