This paper proposes a scheme in which the differentiated services field of IP headers is used to logically isolate network traffic for forensic purposes. The scheme is described and two example scenarios are presented to illustrate its utility. The scheme, which is based on standard networking technology, helps achieve isolation without additional network infrastructure. Moreover, the scheme is relatively easy to implement in an existing differentiated services network. The paper also discusses key design and configuration challenges that must be addressed in a successful implementation.
