Can You Get That License Plate?

Wednesday, October 08, 2014 (13:13:57)
We find ourselves analyzing new surveillance videos almost every day, and in most cases we can either solve the problem very quickly or understand (even quicker) that there is no information to recover in the video. In special cases though, where something very specific and strange happened, or the problem is very complex, it can take a lot of time.

As always… Pareto principle: you solve 80% of the cases in 20% of the time, and, well, 20% of the cases takes 80% of the time. In our own work, the right numbers are probably 95% to 5%, but the idea still holds.

We can estimate whether an image or video contains some information and is worth processing, or not, very quickly. In this article, we will describe some of the tests that can be done to quickly tell if you can get that license plate...

Using Dynamic App Finder to Recover More Mobile Artifacts

Tuesday, October 07, 2014 (10:45:38)
Data recovered from mobile chat apps is critical to many forensic investigations. However, with thousands of mobile chat apps in use today and a steady stream of new apps emerging, identifying, recovering and analyzing mobile chat data has become a challenging and time consuming duty for forensic professionals.

Often investigators will come across a less popular app, or even a custom app created by a suspect that isn’t supported by any tool, but will still require examination. Dynamic App Finder is a feature of the Internet Evidence Finder (IEF) Mobile Module that helps address this problem. DAF searches for any potential mobile chat app databases located on images or file dumps of iOS or Android mobile devices...

Stuart, please tell us more about your role as Director of Cybersecurity and Investigation Services at Nuix.

My role covers three main areas: product development, support and training, and advisory to the United Nations’ International Telecommunications Unit (ITU).

What cops need to know about Apple’s iOS 8 lockout

Wednesday, October 01, 2014 (09:12:13)
In mid-September, Apple rolled out iOS 8 for users of the more recent models of the iPhone, iPad, and Mac computers. Among many changes was a statement from Apple CEO Tim Cook that Apple would no longer assist law enforcement agencies in unlocking iPhones and iPads. Actually, Apple’s claim is that they cannot assist law enforcement in this way, because iOS 8 encrypts the data on the device with a key linked to the user’s passcode, and that passcode is not transmitted to Apple. This saves Apple from being in the middle of a subpoena/search warrant war, as they can’t give the police what they do not have. Privacy advocates lauded Apple for taking this position.

Analysis by iOS forensics experts indicates that Apple is speaking the truth. Apple doesn’t have the key to unlock a device running iOS 8. However, that doesn’t always mean that the cops can’t get access...
