Abstract

Cybercrime is conducted by manipulating the digital devices, the negative use of digital devices harms an individual or society. As it is primarily cleared that the digital evidence or the evidence that is not available in substantive form, can only be collected by using the tools, techniques, knowledge and expertise, here a question may be arises that whether there is a settled principle to follow while conducting the digital investigation. In this context, this article discusses the concept of digital forensic and computer tools used in the investigation process. This research is limited to the case of Pakistan. An analytical method of the research is followed. This paper concludes that as the digital investigation unlike the formal investigation is totally different having different techniques, different mechanism and different skills, the process and steps involved in digital investigation are pretty much same in rest of the world, but the standards and the legal backings are different in the countries.
