Unreal Steganography: Using A VR Application As A Steganography Carrier

Tuesday, July 16, 2019 (12:00:13)
by Stuart Wilson

This report focuses on the use of virtual reality as a potential steganography carrier file to avoid detection of forensic analysis applications commonly used within law enforcement. The goal is to show how a virtual reality game/environment can be made with little training, what file types can be stored within it and if the files can be extracted once the environment has been packaged and if forensic tools can analyse the files. This has been done by producing a virtual reality environment using Unreal Engine, as when comparing Unity and Unreal as mentioned within section 3.3, Unreal proved easier to use within the given time. Once the virtual reality environment was built, the steganography file needed to be created. This was done by using popular tools such as Our Secret, Deep Sound and Open Puff.

Finding And Interpreting Windows Firewall Rules

Monday, July 15, 2019 (08:38:41)
by Joakim Kävrestad

Determining with whom and in what way a computer has communicated can be important and interesting in several types of examinations. Communications can be an important part of analyzing if and how a computer has been remote controlled or with whom the computer has shared information. It can also be a good way to determine if a computer has been compromised or infected with malware.

If a computer is compromised and controlled remotely by a rogue user, that user needs to have an established connection to the computer. Further, many types of malware are used to steal and send information to someone, and simply need to be connected with a so-called “command and control” server that can control their behavior. A common denominator for everything that needs to communicate is that it has to pass through the firewall.
