Obtaining Critical Real-Time Evidence From The Cloud

Thursday, April 18, 2019 (14:07:23)
Vladimir Katalov presents his research at DFRWS EU 2018.

There is quite a lot of information on the smartphone, that’s probably the most available source now for all the data, including the private data, business data, a lot of [passwords], documents, mails, and everything else. And we have to find a way how to get that effectively and fast.

There are several methods acquiring the data from the smartphones. There are some that work well on a lowest level, through JTAG or chip-off, when I just read the memory from the device. That method, unfortunately, doesn’t work for most modern devices, because all the data is encrypted there or there is simply no debug port or there is a full-disk encryption there.

Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs) In The US

Wednesday, April 17, 2019 (10:02:18)
by Patrick Siewart

Increasingly, cellular records and their associated location information are being used in civil litigation, where previously they were considered to be a “law enforcement only” tool. But in the age when users carry at least one smartphone with them at all times, the location data with regard to calls / texts / data usage can be crucial evidence in certain cases. These include insurance fraud investigations, domestic / custody / cohabitation matters and personal injury cases.

As we’ve detailed in previous articles, there are five main US-based cellular carriers: Verizon Wireless, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile & U.S. Cellular. But what about those not on the list of five? What about Boost or Straight Talk or Virgin Mobile or Cricket or Tracfone or… the list goes on and on. Well, these carriers are all what are known as mobile virtual network operators or MVNOs.

Building Stack Traces From Memory Dump Of Windows x64

Monday, April 15, 2019 (12:10:48)
Yuto Otsuki discusses his research at DFRWS EU 2018.

Yuto: Thank you, chairperson. I am Yuto Otsuki, a researcher at NTT Secure Platform Laboratories in Japan.

Today, I’d like to talk about building stack traces from memory dump of Windows x64. Now, as you know, malware is widely used for various cyberattacks. To fight against such attacks, forensic analysis is a conventional approach. And stack traces play an important role in memory forensics, as well as program debugging. Stack traces become a clue to uncover what malware has actually done on the host. However, unfortunately, traditional techniques don’t work for memory dump of Windows x64 environment.

We propose a new method for building stack traces from such memory dump. I’ll start talking from background.
