Android Auto And Google Assistant – How Google Encourages Hands-Free Motoring

Monday, March 02, 2020 (10:10:28)
Josh Hickman shares his research at DFRWS US 2019.

Josh: My name is Josh Hickman. I am the forensic scientist manager for the digital evidence section in the North Carolina state crime lab. And I am here this morning to talk about Android Auto and Google Assistant. And I know I'm the last presentation before lunch, so I'll try to do my best to get you out here on time. Real quick before I do get started, I gave this presentation to our labs administrators as a dry run and I inadvertently set off a couple of Google Assistant phones during it. I will make a conscious effort to not say the hot word to trigger Google Assistant, but I may slip up inadvertently do it. So you're forewarned.

So Android Auto and Google Assistant work together. You know, the ability to have our vehicles interface with our mobile devices is not a new concept, but it's one that's really started to get into the mainstream.

Chromium-Based Microsoft Edge From A Forensic Point Of View

Wednesday, February 26, 2020 (15:06:46)
by Oleg Skulkin & Svetlana Ostrovskaya

Recently Microsoft finally released the Chromium-based version of Edge Browser, so it seems we’ll miss ESE databases soon (not). Of course, it may have a similar set of forensic artifacts to Chromium or Chrome, but we must check it anyway. What’s more, the browser is available not only for Windows, but also for macOS, Android and iOS.

On Windows, Edge data is available under the following location:

C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Edge\User Data\Default

Let’s start from bookmarks or “favorites”. They are stored in a JSON file with the same name – Bookmarks. You can open it with any text editor. The timestamps are stored in WebKit format – a 64-bit value for microseconds since Jan 1, 1601 00:00 UTC.

Forensic Pattern Of Life Analysis

Tuesday, February 25, 2020 (15:32:58)
by Christa Miller, Forensic Focus

Pattern of life analysis isn’t a new concept to anyone who’s ever been involved with intelligence, in particular surveillance. It’s all about the habits that people — suspects, persons of interest, crime victims, or those connected to any of the above — carry out in day-to-day life.

When it comes to digital devices, how users interact with them can tell a very detailed story about any given timeframe. There are two reasons for doing this. One, as Brett Shavers outlined in a blog post last year, is to tie a particular device to a user — more of an issue for a computer or tablet than a smartphone.

Australian Police: XAMN Helped Solve Armed Robbery

Monday, February 24, 2020 (13:59:38)
By: Jeremy Byers, a police investigator in Australia
This post was originally written and published on the MSAB blog

I have been employed as a member of the Australian Federal Police and the South Australian Police since 2008. Most of my law enforcement experience has been investigating serious and organized crime. I am presently undertaking a Graduate Diploma in cybersecurity under the supervision of Dr Matthew Sorell Senior Lecturer at University of Adelaide.

Investigations within this field of policing increasingly rely upon interpreting large volumes of telecommunications data commonly derived from service providers as well as data extracted from mobile telephones.
