Abstract

Analysis of contemporary web browser sessions for forensic purposes has one major challenge-that of distinguishing Internet events and sessions across multiple tabs.

In this work, we focus on isolating multiple simultaneous browser sessions using network and browser-related metadata on browsers that deploy a separate process for each browser session, which we term process-separated browser implementation. In a previous work, it was shown that network artifacts can be associated with browser artifacts to relate network stream with browser s..
