AB - Discovering who performed a cyber-attack or from where it originated is essential in order to determine an appropriate response and future risk mitigation measures. In this work, we propose a novel argumentation-based reasoner for analyzing and attributing cyber-attacks that combines both technical and social evidence. Our reasoner helps the digital forensics analyst during the analysis of the forensic evidence by providing to the analyst the possible culprits of the attack, new derived evidence, hints about missing evidence, and insights about other paths of investigation. The proposed reasoner is flexible, deals with conflicting and incomplete evidence,and was tested on real cyber-attacks cases.
