Jessica Hyde discusses her research on Google Chrome at DFRWS EU 2019.
Jessica: Hey, everyone. Good morning. So we’re going to be talking about forensics of Chromebooks, as Hans just mentioned. Just a little bit about me, I work as Director of Forensics at Magnet Forensics, and I also teach mobile device forensics at George Mason University. (That is a really old picture of me, like twenty years ago.) And I also did all this work with our CTO, Jad Saliba, so we did this research together.
So what are we going to be talking about today? We’re going to be talking a little about what [a] Chromebook operating system is, why we care about it, what issues we have in the analysis of Chromebook forensics, what we learned in this, what we can recover, a lot about how it compares to data you may be able to get via other methods, and what the differences are. And then we’ll wrap it up.
