Imm2Virtual: A Windows GUI To Virtualize Directly From Disk Image File

Monday, October 09, 2017 (12:39:23)
by Nanni Bassetti

Sometimes during a computer forensic investigation, we need to virtualize our image disk, because it could be useful for checking or finding something of interest.

If we need to virtualize a disk image file, we can:

1. Convert the image file in VDI/VMDK
2. Use GNU/Linux and XMount

The first point is very space and time consuming, indeed if we have a disk image of 1Tb in size, we need another 1Tb to store the VDI/VMDK virtual disk for feeding our Virtual Machine and the conversion process is time wasting.

In GNU/Linux we can use XMount which is very comfortable because we don’t need to convert the image file in Virtual Disk file format, it “allows you to convert on-the-fly between multiple input and output harddisk image types. Xmount creates a virtual file system using FUSE (Filesystem in Userspace) that contains a virtual representation of the input image.“

Call For Papers: DFRWS EU 2018

Wednesday, October 04, 2017 (11:17:10)
The call for papers for DFRWS EU 2018 has been extended to the 9th of October.

DFRWS invites contributions in five categories:

• Research papers
• Practitioner / industry researcher presentations
• Hands-on workshops / tutorials
• Panel discussions
• Demos and posters

RESEARCH PAPERS undergo double-blinded peer review, and the proceedings are published by Elsevier as a special issue of the Journal of Digital Investigation.

PRESENTATIONS, POSTERS, and DEMOS require a brief proposal, not a paper. These proposals undergo a light review process to select presentations of maximal interest to DFRWS attendees, and to filter out sales pitches. Presentation proposals must specify their target length from the following options: 20 minutes, 120 minutes (2 hours), 240 minutes (4 hours), or full day. Note, longer presentations and hands-on tutorials are referred to as ‘workshops’ described below.
