Advanced FTK Training From AccessData

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.   more ...

Oxygen Forensic Detective From Oxygen Forensics

Reviewed by K. Gus Dimitrelos CEO – Cyber Forensics 360

Opening the Oxygen Forensic Detective Dongle packaging I did not expect my forensics world of 20 years and counting to change so quickly. As a retired Secret Service agent, I began forensics in the dark ages of 1996 and would never have forecasted the growth of the mobile device market or their involvement or use in criminal enterprise. The importance of connecting device extracted data, event timelines, and linked communications with the associated web, social and cloud artifacts has re-defined the role of examiners and detectives. Welcome to the future and the new baseline of mobile device and data forensics. Oxygen Forensic Detective moved the line across from the typical data-dump style result to a more analytical and fully functioning Swiss cyber knife.   more ...

Mobile Forensic Investigations

by Lee Reiber

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.   more ...

Oxygen Forensic Complete Training

Reviewed by Brad Robin

Introduction

This review will be based solely on the Oxygen Forensic Complete Training class that occurred in Lafayette, Louisiana between April 19-21, 2016.

Coming into this class my knowledge of the Oxygen Forensic Detective program was very limited. I still remember calling a friend the first time I used the program and asking “Where are the pictures and videos?’ Now don’t get me wrong I have a vast knowledge of the digital forensics community and programs, however you will find that all programs are created different and the GUI interfaces can be quite tricky until you learn each. This is why I am an advocate of being trained on the software you actually use in your day to day investigations.   more ...

Registry Recon

Reviewed by Cheryl A. Purdy, MBA, A+, CCNA, CCAI, ACE, AME

Executive Summary

Registry Recon, developed by Arsenal Recon, is a powerful computer forensics tool used to extract, recover, and parse registry data from Windows systems. The process of manually scouring Windows Registry files proves to be extremely time consuming and leaves gaping holes in the ability to recover critical information. What makes this tool superior to others is its capability to examine registry files not only from the current installation of a Windows operating system, but former installations as well. In addition, this application can be used to quickly and efficiently determine external devices that have been connected to the computer. The company’s slogan is, “Computer forensics tools by computer forensics experts.” This tool certainly affirms the slogan!   more ...
