Paraben Announces the Device Seizure Challenge

How long has it been since you’ve tried Device Seizure? With over 12 years of development exclusively as a forensic tool, the latest version of Device Seizure goes head-to-head with any tool available. We know you will love the new Device Seizure and are willing to give you a free 30 day license so you can find out how much Device Seizure v6.66 can do for you.

Visit the Paraben website for additional details on the challenge at www.paraben.com/challenge.phpParaben’s Device Seizure v6.66 is the latest release in Paraben’s mobile forensic tool line. With this new release Paraben has a challenge offered to any examiner so they can use a fully licensed version of Device Seizure for 30-days. “Since 2002 we have been doing mobile forensics and we feel our latest version really shows the commitment we have to the discipline with support for all Android and iOS versions as well as a long list of additional features. This is the perfect opportunity for members of the community to try the tool out and see if it is a good fit in their toolbox,” said Amber Schroader, CEO of Paraben. “With tight budgets and other products hitting end of life, it’s more important than ever that examiners have access to powerful, yet affordable tools that support almost all devices on the market both logically and physically and Device Seizure offers just that.” Mobile forensics has become a crucial discipline for every lab to be able to handle. In the past, technologies have been cost prohibitive for smaller labs to be able to add this capability. But that is not the case with comprehensive tools such as Device Seizure at an affordable cost.

The Device Seizure Challenge is simple. Sign up and you will receive a free 30-day license of Device Seizure v6.66. After you test it out, fill out a short survey and you’ll receive a free small StrongHold faraday bag. Paraben’s StrongHold bags are the only patented EMI shielding bags in the industry. The recent SCOTUS ruling on mobile phone searches makes having a faraday solution a must have part of your toolbox.

About Device Seizure

Device Seizure was the first commercial tool released for mobile forensics in 2002. With over 10 years of development Device Seizure supports over 18,000 device profiles for logical, physical, and file system extractions, as well as password bypassing. By supporting 100% of iOS devices and over 96% of Androids, Device Seizure is the top notch solution for forensic examiners that are looking for a comprehensive and cost effective solution for their lab to be able to process mobile devices.

Quantifying Data Volatility for IoT Forensics With Examples From Contiki OS

File timestamps are used by forensics practitioners as a fundamental artifact. For example, the creation of user files can show traces of user activity, while system files, like configuration and log files, typically reveal when a program was run. 

Despite timestamps being ubiquitous, the understanding of their exact meaning is mostly overlooked in favor of fully-automated, correlation-based approaches. Existing work for practitioners aims at understanding Windows and is not directly applicable to Unix-like systems. 

In this paper, we review how each layer of the software stack (kernel, file system, libraries, application) influences MACB timestamps on Unix systems such as Linux, OpenBSD, FreeBSD and macOS.

We examine how POSIX specifies the timestamp behavior and propose a framework for automatically profiling OS kernels, user mode libraries and applications, including compliance checks against POSIX.

Our implementation covers four different operating systems, the GIO and Qt library, as well as several user mode applications and is released as open-source.

Based on 187 compliance tests and automated profiling covering common file operations, we found multiple unexpected and non-compliant behaviors, both on common operations and in edge cases.

Furthermore, we provide tables summarizing timestamp behavior aimed to be used by practitioners as a quick-reference.
