Using The Content-Length Header Field In Email Forensics

Friday, March 29, 2019 (11:06:55)
by Arman Gungor

As forensic examiners, we often have to analyze emails in isolation without the benefit of server metadata, neighbor messages, or data from other sources such as workstations. When authenticating an email in isolation, every detail counts—we review a long list of data points such as formatting discrepancies within the message body, dates hidden in MIME boundary delimiters, and header fields.

One data point I often see being overlooked is the Content-Length header field. The value this field contains can be leveraged for a simple but powerful check to verify an email’s payload. In this post, I will discuss how we need to preserve emails to be able to utilize the Content-Length header field, how to utilize the data in this field, and a couple of use case scenarios. Let’s start by defining Content-Length.

Interview With Benjamin, Creator Of Metadata Interrogator

Wednesday, March 27, 2019 (11:22:43)
Ben, tell us a bit about yourself and how you got into digital forensics.

Hello! So in terms of background, I come from predominantly a law enforcement background, although I’ve also worked in counter-fraud in the private sector too. I’ve been lucky enough to work in a number of roles in a variety of countries, and I feel that it’s given me a broad insight into our field and the challenges we face.

I started working in proper investigations at that strange time when everything was just starting to go ‘online’ – the move to dynamic web pages and online services. At that time, I had a lot of colleagues who rejected the idea of digital investigations/forensics (“the internet is never going to take off!”), and so due to just having a love of tech, I was always given any case that had a technical/digital element to it – and that was really how I began in digital forensics!

Using Distinctive Digital Traces To Evaluate Non-Obvious Links And Repetitions

Tuesday, March 26, 2019 (10:58:57)
Timothy Bollé discusses his research at DFRWS EU 2018.

Timothy: Hello. I am Timothy Bollé. I am currently doing my PhD at the School of Criminal Justice in the University of Lausanne, with Professor Eoghan Casey. And I’m going to discuss the usage of computed similarity of distinctive digital traces to evaluate non-obvious links and repetitions in cyber-investigations.

Just as a quick introduction: The online crimes are repetitive by nature, because there is a lot of victims to reach and because there is a low risk of being identified or apprehended. This repetition can be found as crime series, so it will be the same offender or same group of offenders that will commit multiple crimes. Or, as crime patterns, like hotspots or repeated victimization. To find this repetition, we can use forensic data, like traces, and also, more situational information, like modus operandi description or spatiotemporal information.

Standardized Corpus For SQLite Database Forensics

Wednesday, March 20, 2019 (15:02:23)
Sven Schmitt discusses his work at DFRWS EU 2018.

Sven: Thank you very much, ladies and gentlemen. Thank you for having me. I will today talk about SQLite database forensics. My name is Sven Schmitt, as Bruce introduced correctly. I am a PhD student with Felix Freiling at the FAU University in Erlangen-Nuremberg, but actually, I only pursue my PhD during night-times and on the weekends, because I mainly work for law enforcement in Germany.

The topic that I’ve brought to Florence this time is ‘A Standardized Corpus for SQLite Database Forensics’. Basically, we will talk about forensic corpora in general, at the beginning. Then, we will introduce the forensic corpus that we created during this work, and I’ll who a little bit details about the tests and the results that we have, because we tested some tools against the corpus, and finally, we derived some points, some requirements that we think are useful for forensic tools in general.

Webinar: How To Image Macs With The T2 Chip

Monday, March 18, 2019 (18:49:05)
BlackBag Technologies is proud to announce the first and only solution to produce a decrypted physical image of Apple’s latest Mac systems utilizing the T2 chip.

Current logical imaging solutions, including functionality available in the previous version of BlackBag’s own MacQuisition tool, and competing solutions like Sumuri Recon and EnCase, miss critical file system information that only this new level of physical access will be able to provide.

This vital imaging functionality will be available in the upcoming MacQuisition 2019 R1 release and the output will be seamlessly ingested for analysis by BlackLight 2019 R1.
