You can download all of our Free Tools over at the Free Tools page of our website.

Over the years, we’ve always tried to find ways to provide helpful tools to the community wherever we can — whether it’s the MAGNET App Simulator, MAGNET Process Capture, or our consistently popular Magnet ACQUIRE too. We’re happy to keep that tradition going with these newly released Free Tools — read all about them below.New: MAGNET Custom Artifact Generator

Download MAGNET Custom Artifact Generator here.

The new MAGNET Custom Artifact Generator (MCAG) tool makes it easy to create custom artifacts for use within Magnet AXIOM from CSV (and other delimited files) and SQLite databases. This means you can now build your own custom artifacts to bring data into AXIOM from other sources without needing to know XML/Python or Magnet’s API for custom artifacts.

We know that examiners are always looking for ways to bring more data from multiple sources into AXIOM, many times in unsupported formats. Custom artifacts are a very powerful extension to Magnet AXIOM that can make this possible, but they would often require time and some programming knowledge to create.

With the MAGNET Custom Artifact Generator, that process is now simplified so you don’t need programming experience to help unlock their power.

Key Features:

– Supports CSV/Delimited files (tab-separated, space-separated, or custom delimiters) and SQLite databases
– Allows you to configure timestamp fields and other categorization fields and set data types
– GUI/Wizard-driven, so no coding experience required
– Generated custom artifacts can be saved directly to AXIOM

For a detailed review of MAGNET Custom Artifact Generator check out this blog from our Director of Forensics, Jessica Hyde.

MAGNET Web Page Saver v3.0

Download MAGNET Web Page Saver v3.0 here.

MAGNET Web Page Saver (WPS) is perfect for capturing how web pages look at a specific point in time. We’ve brought a lot of new features to WPSv3.0 including:

– New SQLite output option: Everything captured goes into a single SQLite database file and a custom artifact is saved to the output folder, enabling you to ingest that SQLite database (or any WPS-generated SQLite database) into AXIOM
– Ability to save linked/embedded images and videos (.jpg, .mp4, .png, .bmp, .gif, .avi, .mpg, .wmv, .jpeg, .mov, .m4v, and .flv extensions) from captured web pages to individual files that are easy to scan/hash with Magnet AXIOM afterwards
– Web browser interface included to allow for logging into sites/creating sessions prior to starting a capture
– Enables Ad-hoc/manual capture of pages, browsing to sites manually and capturing as you go
– View progress for long captures when in the automated capture mode
– New option to save raw HTML content from captured web pages in addition to the screen capture
– New Chrome-based browser/browser engine for displaying and capturing pages – supports all modern pages and doesn’t rely on what you have installed on your machine
– Updated PDF support with improved capture and new options, including auto-bookmarking and enable/disable links in the PDF
– New link to the capture log in the HTML report

MAGNET Encrypted Disk Detector v3.0

Download Encrypted Disk Detector v3.0 here.

Encrypted Disk Detector (EDD) is a command-line tool that can quickly and non-intrusively check for encrypted volumes on a computer system during incident response.

New Features include:

– Overall performance and stability improvements
– VeraCrypt support added
– You can now specify a single drive to be checked for encryption:
Bitlocker, TrueCrypt, PGP, SafeBoot, and VeraCrypt detection are supported in this mode
This allows EDD to be used in an AUTOMATE workflow to check a drive/mounted image for encryption in order to determine next steps in the workflow
– Enhanced information displayed for drives
