How To Use Magnet AXIOM In Mac USB Investigations

Wednesday, November 20, 2019 (20:07:38)
Hey everyone, Trey Amick from Magnet Forensics here. Today we’re talking about Mac USB investigations, and what happens when we’ve been alerted that a USB has been inserted into an end point.

Different organisations handle USB policies differently. Some have alerting mechanisms in place for when USBs are detected, while others may encrypt the drive when it’s inserted into the end point. Other organisations may block the external drive from being mounted altogether, or may only allow specific external drives to be used by employees. Lastly, we have some organisations that tell staff it’s against policy to use USBs, but don’t take any additional steps to further protect the end point.

Can Your Investigation Interpret Emoji?

Wednesday, November 20, 2019 (19:27:10)
by Christa Miller, Forensic Focus

Emoji are everywhere — including in your evidence. Used across private-messaging apps and email, social media, and even in passwords and account names, emoji are pictographic representations of objects, moods, and words. They’re a convenient shortcut for users who want to convey tone and emotion in digital communication without using a lot of words.

Preston Farley, a Special Investigator with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), believes “emoji will emerge as a prominent form of communication sooner rather than later,” and that there are potential ramifications for digital forensics examiners and investigators when it comes to analyzing and testifying about emoji.

Presenting at the Techno Security and Digital Investigations conference in Myrtle Beach in June 2019, Farley explained that emoji present two distinct challenges.

Viber Messenger Extraction In Oxygen Forensic Detective

Wednesday, November 20, 2019 (17:45:13)
Viber is a cross-platform voice over IP and instant messaging software operated by Rakuten. The software app is provided as freeware for Android, Apple iOS, Microsoft Windows, macOS and Linux platforms. Initially the messenger was developed in 2010 by the Israel-based Viber Media, which was then bought by Rakuten in 2014. According to Statista, there were over 1.1 billion registered users as of March 2019.

Viber’s official website states the app offers end-to-end encryption and the encryption keys only exist on user’s devices. Additionally, they state no data is stored on the Viber server and that messages are only temporarily stored when they cannot be delivered to the mobile device.

French Agency Uses Chip-Off Technique To Solve A Critical Case

Wednesday, November 20, 2019 (17:42:57)
By: Christophe Gabay, MSAB Area Sales Manager

Recovering data from mobile devices continues to bring new challenges to investigators, and using “chip-off” and Joint Test Action Group (JTAG) methods have become topics of growing interest in the law enforcement community.

When a mobile device is damaged or locked, the chip-off and JTAG methods are among the best alternative solutions for examiners looking to gain access to the memory.

JTAG is an advanced level data acquisition method which involves connecting to a device’s Test Access Ports (TAPs) and instructing the processor to transfer the raw data stored on connected memory chips. When supported, JTAG-ing is an extremely effective technique that can let examiners extract a full physical image from devices that aren’t supported with standard methods.
