Interview With Jad Saliba, Founder & CTO, Magnet Forensics

Monday, July 09, 2018 (11:47:42)
Jad, you're the Founder & CTO of Magnet Forensics. Tell us about your role: what does a day in your life look like?

As you can imagine, there’s never a dull moment! Outside of the strategic product initiatives and broader corporate duties I take part in co-heading Magnet with our CEO, Adam Belsher, I spend a lot of time throughout my day talking to people. Whether it’s in-person meetings with our customers, checking out the listservs and social media to hear from the forensics community, or talking to our developers and engineers about the work that needs to go into making AXIOM better and better. Our customers depend on us to give them a flawless product that will help them solve cases faster than ever — and that’s not a responsibility we take lightly.

Register For Webinar: The Importance Of APFS Snapshots In Investigations

Wednesday, July 04, 2018 (10:23:46)
How do you go back in time to review what happened on an APFS volume? In Apple’s latest file system, snapshots are now used to store the history of changes to files. In addition, the file system may be creating this back up data in snapshots whether the user knows it or not.

In this webinar, BlackBag’s Dr. Joe Sylve will discuss:

- Details of the snapshot functionality built into APFS
- Why snapshots will be useful in your investigations
- How you will be able to take advantage of them in the upcoming BlackLight release
- If your tool of choice is not parsing APFS snapshots, then you may be missing data.

Presenter: Dr. Joe T. Sylve, Director of Research and Development, BlackBag Technologies

Date / Time: Wednesday, July 11th 2:00pm EDT / 7:00pm BST / 11:00am PDT

Using IMAP Internal Date for Forensic Email Authentication

Friday, June 29, 2018 (15:15:35)
by Arman Gungor

Internal Date is an IMAP Message Attribute that indicates the internal date and time of a message on an IMAP server. This is a different timestamp than the Origination Date field found in the message header and can be instrumental in authenticating email messages on an IMAP server.

Let’s start with an example. The perpetrator wants to fabricate an email message and make it look like he sent it back in December 2016 from his GoDaddy email account to the Yahoo! email account of his business partner.

He takes a genuine message between the parties from December 2017, edits the subject and the message body to his heart’s content and makes sure to pick a suitable date in December 2016.

MSAB Joins CASE Initiative On Digital Forensic Standards

Thursday, June 28, 2018 (10:28:01)
CASE is working to promote the exchange of cyber investigation information between technologies and organizations

MSAB today announced that the company has joined other industry leaders to work collaboratively on the Cyber-Investigation Analysis Standard Expression (CASE) initiative. CASE is a community-developed specification language or standard designed to serve a broad range of cyber-investigation domains, including digital forensic science, incident response, counter-terrorism, criminal justice, forensic intelligence and situational awareness.

The CASE Initiative began in 2015 at the U.S. Department of Defense Cyber Crime Center (DC3). The standard was released as open source in 2017 and its adoption grew following a meeting at Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre. The primary motivation for CASE is interoperability - to advance the exchange of cyber-investigation information between tools and organizations.

Electromagnetic Side-Channel A‚ttacks: Potential For Progressing Hindered Digita

Thursday, June 21, 2018 (10:45:36)
by Asanka Sayakkara, Nhien-An Le-Khac & Mark Scanlon

Digital forensics is a fast-growing €field involving the discovery and analysis of digital evidence acquired from electronic devices to assist investigations for law enforcement. Traditional digital forensic investigative approaches are o‰ften hampered by the data contained on these devices being encrypted. Furthermore, the increasing use of IoT devices with limited standardisation makes it difficult to analyse them with traditional techniques. ŒThis paper argues that electromagnetic side-channel analysis has signi€ficant potential to progress investigations obstructed by data encryption. Several potential avenues towards this goal are discussed.
