I was wondering if anyone is aware of any conferences that cover WhatsApp security on android or something similar. My project requires me to look for three conference papers and justify why they are relevant, however I can't seem to find any. I have already looked through:

  • search.proquest
  • Science direct
  • web of knowledge
  • Google scholar
  • What has this got to do with forensics...? – user2339071 Nov 4 '15 at 14:58
  • @user2339071 so i'm Forensically Analysing whatsapp for artifacts that can be used court in my project, and as result i have to find conference papers/presentations that have information related to either android application security or whatsapp – Jaskaran Singh Nov 4 '15 at 15:47
  • Why does it have to be "conference papers"? That's an odd requirement. – schroeder Nov 4 '15 at 17:15
  • it's just what the marking scheme specified, but even then i then i think presentations are also allowed, as long as it was presented in a conference. – Jaskaran Singh Nov 4 '15 at 19:14
