Paraben Launches The E3 Platform Version 2.0

Providing a better solution for all types of digital evidence, E3 Platform is a comprehensive digital forensic tool designed to handle more data, effectively and efficiently. The version 2.0 of the E3 Platform has only enhanced these capabilities with key features in both architecture and analysis. “We put a lot of thought into our 2.0 release to make sure we were not only offering new great features like iOS 12 and Android Pie support, but also a better design with a change to a full 64-bit backend for all of our analysis engines. We want to make sure we are producing data quickly and completely with each investigation” stated Amber Schroader, Founder and CEO.

Paraben’s long-term support of the DFIR space and their commitment to processing of digital evidence many organizations have switched to the E3 Platform for their processing needs. Many investigators have noticed how easy it is to make the switch with an intuitive interface and pricing that is not only fair, but also affordable to maintain with no subscription cost over $1,000.00.

So, what makes the 2.0 release shine? It is brimming with new features and enhancements.

• E3 Platform is now 64-bit with all of our analysis engines ready to speed up your analysis.
• Python SDK allows you to create your own custom scripts of the E3 Platform!
• Encrypted file detection in the sorter for quick triage of locked files.
• iOS 12 support
• Android Pie support
• Windows 10 artifacts for Cortana voice commands, file history, and file backups with their locations
• User Activity Timeline for Android allows you to pinpoint everything happening on a device for a specific moment of time!
• New and improved Android acquisition that is faster and acquires more data than ever before.
• iOS acquisition accelerator for faster acquisitions!
• New Image Analysis Add-On for scans for illicit content, drugs, weapons, and more.

Quantifying Data Volatility for IoT Forensics With Examples From Contiki OS

Forensic Focus 22nd June 2022 5:00 am

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.
