10 DFIR Blogs You Don’t Want to Miss

Tuesday, September 20, 2016 (11:12:56)
by Christa M. Miller

Digital forensics is a tough job. Forensicators must evolve as rapidly as the technology does, which means being in a constant state of learning. Formal education is costly and can’t keep up. The next best alternative: learn from others’ experience.

It can be a challenge, however, to share one’s forensication expertise on an ongoing basis. Nondisclosure agreements, time, and effort all present a challenge when you’re a forensicator with a life. Those who make it work, however, deserve special recognition for fueling the DFIR community with the information examiners need to understand where their results come from, how to do better, more accurate work, and overall keep moving forward.

Meeting A Forensic Challenge: Recovering Data From A Jolla Smartphone

Wednesday, September 14, 2016 (07:49:19)
by Davide Gabrini, Andrea Ghirardini, Mattia Epifani and Francesco Acchiappati

During the hacking camp MOCA 2016, at the end of a talk held by Davide “Rebus” Gabrini on passcode circumvention methods on mobile devices, a bystander offered an intriguing challenge: he offered for research purposes a smartphone to find out if and how someone could crack it, overcome security and extract information.

The smartphone was a Jolla White 16GB JP-1301, equipped with the Sailfish operating system. The device was previously reset twice by the owner and it was protected by a 5-digit PIN without encryption on the internal storage. Moreover, the developer mode was not active because it required a Jolla account that was not available.

Webinar: Deep Diving for Forensic Gold – Applications and Deleted Data

Tuesday, September 06, 2016 (08:54:17)

Date: Wednesday, September 14, 2016
Time: 7 am PDT / 10 am EDT / 3 pm BST
Duration: 60 mins

Presenter: Lee Reiber, COO at Oxygen Forensics

Several years ago, forensic software manufacturers prided themselves on the amount of device profiles they supported. Nowadays what really matters is the amount of supported applications. Beyond all doubt, all the vital evidence is stored in apps: contacts, group and private chats, plans, geo coordinates, cache and much more. But it is not enough to parse apps databases: in many cases you need to decrypt and retrieve securely stored data in apps, like Whatsapp, Snapchat, Telegram, etc. Moreover, the situation with apps is constantly changing: popular apps are updated almost every week and forensic software manufacturers have to catch up with it adding support for newer versions. A variety of supported applications also matters: criminals prefer to choose unknown apps to communicate which is why support for popular apps is not enough.

Review - Mobile Forensic Investigations

Wednesday, August 31, 2016 (07:26:12)
Reviewed by Scar de Courcier, Forensic Focus

The subtitle of this book is A Guide to Evidence Collection, Analysis and Presentation - a grand aim considering the scope of the subject matter. 'Mobile devices' these days is an umbrella term covering an overwhelming amount of evidence.

However, the book does it justice. It's an in-depth guide and one that's unusually easy to read for something so technical.
