Abstract

This paper provides a discussion on the objectives, approach and findings of the EU H2020 funded RAMSES project. As the rise of the use of the Internet is followed by the rise of criminal activity on the Internet, new tools are needed for Law Enforcement Agencies to fight the crime and to collect forensic evidence. This project will provide LEAs with new tools and also covers the dark and deep web. Several tools and functionalities are described, alongside the importance of game theoretic models applied to the determination of the probability and efficacy of malware being used for profit.
