Welcome to the official website of the Defense Cyber Crime Center. DC3 is designated as a national cyber center and Department of Defense center for excellence, and serves as the operational focal point for the Defense Industrial Base Cybersecurity and Information Assurance Program. DC3 operates under the executive agency of the Secretary of the Air Force.
DC3â€™s mission is to deliver superior digital forensics and multimedia lab services, cyber technical training, research, development, testing and evaluation, and cyber analysis capabilities supporting cyber counterintelligence and counterterrorism, criminal investigations, intrusion forensics, law enforcement, intelligence community, critical infrastructure partners, and information operations for the Department of Defense.
The Defense Computer Forensics Laboratory (DCFL) is a world-class facility providing comprehensive analysis of digital evidence. DCFL delivers digital and multimedia (D/MM) evidence processing, forensic examinations, and expert testimony for any DoD Agency requiring investigative support.
The Defense Cyber Investigations Training Academy (DCITA) provides in-residence and online training to DoD elements that protect DoD information systems from unauthorized use, criminal, fraudulent, and foreign intelligence activities.
The Defense Cyber Crime Institute (DCCI) is the research, development, test, and evaluation component of DC3. DCCI supports the AG, DCISE, and DCFL with tools and techniques tailored to meet specific requirements of their digital forensic examiners and cyber intrusion analysts.
Defense Industrial Base (DIB) Collaborative Information Sharing Environment (DCISE) works with private industry to protect critical programs, assets, and technology information residing on or transiting DIB controlled unclassified networks.
DC3's Analytical Group (AG) supports law enforcement and counterintelligence (LE/CI) agencies, including the Air Force Office of Special Investigations (AFOSI), the Naval Criminal Investigative Services (NCIS), and key mission partners such as the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI).
The Defense Cyber Crime Center (DC3) released the DC3 Malware Configuration Parser (DC3-MWCP) framework to the open source community on May 6, 2015.
