Abstract

This article presents policing challenges of investigating, evidencing and prosecuting organized cybercriminals for the crimes committed using cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin. A set of best practices is discussed to tackle these challenges in real world investigations. This work is a result of collaboration with a number of stakeholders the policing and judicial ecosystem with the objective of investigating and prosecuting the new generation of organised cybercriminals. Concrete scenarios of using Bitcoins in a range of cybercrimes were developed as part of this project and the devices were analysed to extract evidence to assist prosecution of organised cybercriminals. We have also presented our return of experience for various stages of digital forensics analysis of devices used in Bitcoin transactions.
