MSAB XRY Drone – New Technology To Acquire And Analyze Drone Data

Thursday, October 11, 2018 (12:57:26)
XRY Drone lets investigators extract and analyze data from popular drone models being used for illegal activity --- to reveal flight paths, origin, behavior and other critical information that can identify operators

Police, corrections agencies, border control and military organizations around the globe are developing methods to counter the growing threat from drones. When a drone engaged in illegal activity is recovered, investigators need to extract, decode and view the data --- to get actionable intelligence that can help lead them to the operators and organizers.

New XRY Drone gives investigators new capabilities to do that. Based on a collaboration between URSA and MSAB, XRY Drone is a new member of the XRY line of products from MSAB, widely used by law enforcement to recover and view data from mobile phones and other mobile devices.

Walkthrough: Oxygen Forensic Detective Latest Features

Friday, October 05, 2018 (11:53:58)
Within Oxygen, you’re able to not only connect one device, but several devices, and image them simultaneously. Oxygen’s extractor runs independently of Oxygen Detective, and that’s what allows you to run several different extractions at the same time, and there is no limit other than what the machine you were using will allow.

So again, with Oxygen Extractor, you’re able to open them up and have several open at the same time, and begin multiple device acquisitions. One of the other things that we’re able to do with our imaging is with drones, specifically DJI drones. We can get a full physical from a DJI drone by simply connecting to the device, applying an exploit, and then extracting the physical image from that drone via the micro USB port that is on the drone itself.

Interview With Angus Marshall, Digital Forensic Scientist

Thursday, October 04, 2018 (12:48:30)
Angus, tell us a bit about yourself. What is your role, and how long have you been working in digital forensics?

Where to begin? I have a lot of different roles these days, but by day I’m a Lecturer in Cybersecurity – currently at the University of York, and also run my own digital forensic consultancy business. I drifted into the forensic world almost by accident back in 2001 when a server I managed was hacked. I presented a paper on the investigation of that incident at a forensic science conference and a few weeks later found myself asked to help investigate a missing person case that turned out to be a murder. There’s been a steady stream of casework ever since.

Introducing XAMN 4.0 – Redesigned To Help Investigators Find Evidence Fast

Thursday, October 04, 2018 (11:12:05)
Extracting and decoding mobile data is only half the battle. Finding the critical evidence or intelligence you’re looking for can be equally challenging, like finding a needle in a haystack – or thousands of haystacks, based on the high volumes of data found in modern smartphones.

XAMN 4.0 is a breakthrough; we’ve combined four tools in one powerful, yet lightweight package, with unprecedented capabilities for visualizing data, to help you find the data you need — faster than ever.

Opinion: Is ISO17025 The Right Standard For Digital Forensics?

Wednesday, October 03, 2018 (12:55:08)
by Rich2005

Standardisation is currently the subject of animated discussion among digital forensic examiners worldwide. In this opinion piece, Rich2005 looks at the challenges of the ISO17025 standard for digital forensics and why it might not be the best choice for the field. Please note that the views contained within this article are the opinions of its author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Forensic Focus.

In my opinion ISO17025 is a dangerous standard. It gives the illusion of accuracy and reliability, whilst in the real world it may actually lead to poorer results via static process-following, bulk-evidence production, and the assumption of reliable results at the expense of properly considering the complexities of individual cases.
