The topic, covering Web Application Forensics is challenging. There are not enough references,
discussing this subject, especially in the Scientific communities. Often is the the term 'Web
Application Forensics' misunderstood and mixed with IDS/ IPS defensive security approaches.
Another issue is to discern the Web Application Forensics, short Webapp Forensics, from Network
Forensics and Web Services Forensics, and in general to allocate it in the Digital/ Computer
Forensics classification.
Nowadays, Web Platforms are vastly growing, not to mention the so called Web 2.0 hype.
Furthermore, Business Web Applications blast the common security knowledge and premise rapid
inventory of the current security best practices and approaches. The questions, concerning the
automation of the security defensive and investigation methods, are becoming undeniable
important.
In this paper we should try to dispute the questions, concerning taxonomic approaches regarding the
Webapp Forensics; discuss trends, referenced to this topic and debate the matter of automation tools
for Webapp forensics.
