Review Of Oxygen Forensic Detective From Oxygen Forensics

Tuesday, June 13, 2017 (07:38:19)
Reviewed by Miroslav Klarica, CEO at Detective Agency Mreza, Croatia

The selection of a multifunctional tool for mobile forensics is the key for successful investigation.

Private investigations, no matter if they are about love infidelities, missing persons or asocial behavior of adolescents, today are unimaginable without forensic analysis of mobile devices. I will be more specific, I wouldn't be able to close many of my cases without the help of tools like Oxygen Forensic Detective.

A Method For Verifying Integrity And Authenticating Digital Media

Friday, June 09, 2017 (07:11:05)
by Martin Harran, William Farrelly & Kevin Curran

Due to their massive popularity, image files, especially JPEG, offer high potential as carriers of other information. Much of the work to date on this has focused on steganographic ways of hiding information using least significant bit techniques but we believe that the findings in this project have exposed other ways of doing this. We demonstrate that a digital certificate relating to an image file can be inserted inside that image file along with accompanying metadata containing references to the issuing company. Notwithstanding variations between devices and across operating systems and applications, a JPEG file holds its structure very well. Where changes do take place, this is generally in the metadata area and does not affect the encoded image data which is the heart of the file and the part that needs to be verifiable. References to the issuing company can be inserted into the metadata for the file. There is an advantage of having the digital certificate as an integral part of the file to which it applies and consequently travelling with the file. We ultimately prove that the metadata within a file offers the potential to include data that can be used to prove integrity, authenticity and provenance of the digital content within the file.

New White Paper - The Technology Of Child Luring: Can Machine Learning Help?

Wednesday, June 07, 2017 (06:53:49)
Magnet Forensics has a new white paper available that discusses why and how contextual content analysis works, based on a description of what child luring is (and isn’t) and what nuances to expect.

The white paper - The Technology of Child Luring: And How Machine Learning Helps Investigators to Spot it - also covers how machine learning, such as the model introduced with Magnet.AI (our industry-leading technology that analyzes conversations to recover potential child luring content for examiners to consider), overcomes the above challenges using data science.
