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.

Windows Registry Analysis 101

Friday, April 05, 2019 (06:43:26)
by Chirath De Alwis

Computer forensics is the process of methodically examining computer media (hard disks, diskettes, tapes, etc.) for evidence. When considering computer forensics, registry forensics plays a huge role because of the amount of the data that is stored on the registry and the importance of the stored data. The extraction of this data is therefore highly important when investigating. Due to the limitation of tools that can extract forensically valuable data from registry files, investigators have to extract it manually. Because of the registry file format (.REG), extracting information is a challenging task for investigators. Registry files normally store data under unique values called “Keys”. One challenge that investigators must face is the lack of knowledge about Registry Keys and the data which stored under those Keys. This article provide an overview of registry file acquisition, registry structure and common issues in registry analysis.

Career Paths In Digital Forensics

Wednesday, April 03, 2019 (09:12:05)
by Christa Miller, Forensic Focus

In the 30 or so years since the advent of personal computers made digital forensics a viable career path, the profession has matured to the extent of making multiple career paths possible. Now, professionals who are interested in digital forensics have options that range from law enforcement and government investigations, to corporate and self-employed consulting — and often switch between tracks.

Of course, having so many options means that forensic professionals have to be intentional about setting and following their course. The field continues to evolve, so new options may make themselves available in the short or long terms.

Joe: So, here we have Michael and Tim, who will be talking about their paper, ‘CGC Monitor: A Vetting System for the DARPA Cyber Grand Challenge’.

Timothy: Hi. Thanks for sticking around for the last paper, presentation, [anyway], looks like a few more people have trickled in since breakfast. I’m Tim and this is Mike. And we both worked on the DARPA Cyber Grand Challenge program for about three years. And that concluded just under two years ago now, and the DEF CON conference in Las Vegas. So, we wanted to … it took a little bit to get through all of the disclosure and vetting and [01:01] processes for getting information out from the project, as is sometimes the case with government work.
