Review: Advanced FTK Training From AccessData

Monday, November 28, 2016 (08:56:53)
Reviewed by Azeem - Cyber Security Professional

At the end of the three-day, instructor-led AccessData Advanced FTK (Forensic Toolkit) class, students have been exposed to and trained in the effective use of advanced analysis with FTK, FTK Imager, Password Recovery Toolkit (PRTK), and Registry Viewer. Prior to enrolling in this course, all students should have gone through either AccessData’s BootCamp training or possess a few years of hands-on work experience with FTK software. In my opinion, by meeting these requirements, students will be best prepared to take advantage of everything that the course has to offer, which is sizable.

For a few years, I had been using FTK without any formal training. I had managed to work my way through the fundamentals on my own, but I always sensed that there was much on which I was missing out. Little did I know that the breadth of these tools was passing me by completely.

A Deeper Look at Magnet AXIOM's Improved Hashing

Friday, November 25, 2016 (10:11:58)
By Jamie McQuaid, Forensic Consultant at Magnet Forensics

One of the most obvious benefits of Magnet AXIOM is the access to the entire file system, as well as the hundreds of artifact types that the Magnet Forensics parsing and carving engine finds. To accommodate the larger data set and expanded access, we’ve improved the hashing functionality as well.

If you are more familiar with IEF, then you know there are a few options to hash pictures or whitelist non-relevant files. However, since IEF only reports on the artifacts it finds, some features like hashing were limited to artifacts and any file that was not an artifact wouldn’t be included.

To get started using AXIOM’s advanced hashing functionality, the first thing you’ll want to do is to load your hash lists into AXIOM and, depending on the type of hash list you’re loading, you’ll have a few options available.
