Utilization of the network become a trend present with the development of technology, especially the Internet, but the trend of web use is directly proportional to the usage of the crime, or that is better known as cyber crime. Cyber crime is the duty of law enforcement in combating it.In the disclosure of a case on the network needed a method of handling.

Integrated Digital Forensics Investigation Framework (IDFIF) is a method of investigation of a general nature. IDFIF evolved into IDFIF version 2 that is a method of treatment focuses on smartphones. IDFIF v2 can not be applied to network investigation it is necessary to develop a version 3 IDFIF focused on network forensics. This research is the development of network forensics framework using interactive planning.
