Chromium-Based Microsoft Edge From A Forensic Point Of View

As you can see from the output, the data is stored as plain-text with an initialization file structure. We can see a group header called [ZoneTransfer] along with various name/value pairs. Immediately, you can see there are some very interesting properties in this stream, such as ReferrerUrl and HostUrl. This was not always the case. Earlier versions of the Zone.Identifier stream only contained the ZoneId property. Other properties have been added over time, further enhancing the value of this data. From an investigative point of view, these properties are extremely useful.

Chromium-Based Microsoft Edge From A Forensic Point Of View

The Chromium cache, is a repository for web data a user has viewed or downloaded. In general, the purpose of the cache is to store data locally, and thus allow the browser quick access for later requests to a previously viewed website. The cache includes: website pages, files, scripts, images and other items that were viewed by a user or data that the browser needed to use. In addition to the raw data that was received from a web server, the cache also contains useful metadata associated with each item. From the point of view of the forensic examiner the cache provides insights to the user's Internet usage, since it contains items such as: the URL of the webpage, number of times the page was fetched from the cache, filename/type/size, last modified time, last fetched time, server time, etc. Having a tool available that can take advantage of this artifact data is necessary to have insights into the user's activity.

In particular, the KapeTriage Compound Target was created to selectively collect the most important artifacts from a computer in minutes, rather than creating a full disk image, with forensically reliable, quick win results. Numerous components exist within the KapeTriage Compound Target that have various relationships between data points. Our KapeTriage MindMap provides a hierarchical outline of the KapeTriage Compound Target and, at a glance, shows how various segments collectively deliver the most relevant results for efficient, yet nuanced, IR investigations. Our KapeTriage MindMap can be downloaded for personal use here.

A critical step in the incident response process is the collection of data from compromised endpoints for further forensic analysis. Threat Response provides a feature called Live Response that you can use to collect specific information from endpoints to use for forensic analysis, data correlation, and to investigate potentially compromised systems with a customizable and extensible framework.

Live Response collects forensic information from endpoints, and transfers the results to a network location that you specify in a package. The Live Response package contains configuration files that identify the data to collect, and where to copy the data. Specify the data that you want to collect from endpoints, and the network destination to save the collected files.

Alex Bilz has researched Microsoft Teams from a forensics perspective and has developed tooling to parse these files; you can read more about his thesis work here -09-09-forensic-artifacts-microsoft-teams/.

Video forensic software assists in this task of analyzing and reviewing evidence obtained from a target device such as smartphones, tablets, and computers. Proper video forensics software allows users to identify objects and people in the video, recreate events, and understand how a crime was committed. Video forensics tools will aid in recovering electronically stored videos from devices and filtering them in a manner that is rapid and easily accessible to users.

The knowledge and training you can gain at digital forensic conferences around the world can make the difference in crime solving. In addition to networking, annual conferences are one of the best ways to learn from peers, stay on top of the latest strategies and tactics, get an advance look at industry trends, and they can be a great place to talk face-to-face with digital forensic vendors. In addition to keynotes and lectures, many annual conferences also offer hands-on lab sessions or pre-conference training classes. Below is a list of some of our favorite annual conferences which are in addition to our list of 2020 Law Enforcement Conferences in North America.

The conditions in the Middle East are just too volatile. What you have is effectively a civil war through the entire geographic area. It can be viewed as deep and long fractures stretching out from many points and practically from sea to sea.

When I talk to people I hear them tell me about getting hacked by China or Russia. Plenty of news stories have come out with corporate viewpoints and corporate victims over the years. I have seen this from countries all across the map. We all have. Not a difficult search to perform. It is newsworthy. Countries and companies and individuals want to speak up. Not all, but they are surely out there.
