Abstract: Today, the internet is being used in everybody's daily life thanks to rapid development of science and technology including information and communications technology. The cyberspace has also been used as a den for cybercriminals, whose recent number remarkably increases getting things worse and worse. Cybercrime is technically distinguished from traditional one, which makes it very hard to investigate cybercrime. In particular, a number of technical and legal issues arising in the collection and analysis of digital evidence have great influence in cybercrime investigation. The paper explores general concept of electronic evidence, basic requirements for collecting and analysing digital evidence and general procedures and methodologies thereof.

Keywords: cybercrime; electronic evidence; digital evidence; collection; analysis; cybercrime investigation; internet.
