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 ...

Cellebrite's UFED Cloud Analyzer Product Review

Reviewer: Neil Beet, Blue Lights Digital

Introduction

The Cellebrite UFED Series has been our mobile device forensics product of choice over the past few years, both in the law enforcement environments we previously operated in, and now at Blue Lights Digital where we conduct complex digital investigations on behalf of our clients whether criminal, civil or corporate. We have found that when performing both roles, the products have proved good value for money, are simple to use and remain focused on the investigative need throughout.

Where we have been continually challenged throughout our investigations is in the field of Cloud Forensics, where clients are seeking to obtain information that is not available within the device downloads but that a user would routinely have had access to and be authenticated to do so on their mobile device. Examples of such data include web based email accounts, instant messaging services and social media networks.   more ...

Lima Forensic Case Management, Laboratory Edition

Reviewer: Richard Bunnell, Digital Forensics, LLC

Executive Summary

Lima Laboratory is an amazing product. If I was on a medium to large digital forensics team, I would not hesitate to recommend that this product be purchased and used. A good selling point would be the compliance with the international standards ISO 9001, ISO 27001 and ISO 17025 and US Standards such as ASCLD accreditation. One of the goals for us when I worked in a large corporate environment was to bring the lab up to these standards. We had two obstacles: finding the time to research how the standards applied to us, and then actually setting goals to move from where we were to processes and procedures that would meet the standards. With this product, most of that work is already done.   more ...
