Something malicious has happened. Now where do you go from here?

Labs in this category focus on collecting, analyzing, and reporting on digital data in a way that is repeatable and legally admissible. Even if you’re not the victim of a crime, cyber forensics helps you understand what’s going on with your systems whether your users are following appropriate policies and regulations.

Introduces students to the process of investigating usage of peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing services for trading illicit content. Students learn what artifacts of P2P file sharing usage are left on a suspect’s hard drive, as well as how to extract forensically-relevant information from the raw data. Students then use Architecture Technology Corporation’s P2P Marshal™ software in a hands-on practical, gathering evidence from provided forensic disk images using Microsoft Windows®.

A copy of the P2P Marshal software is available free of charge to anyone enrolled in this course.

Prerequisites

Basic cyber forensics knowledge and best practices are recommended.

Disk-based analysis is the cornerstone of cyber forensics, whether it be to track what a suspect was doing or simply to recover accidentally deleted files. This exercise introduces students to the process of imaging and forensically analyzing disks, including finding artifacts such as deleted files. The free Autopsy forensic browser will be used in addition to command-line programs from the open-source Sleuth Kit tool set.

Prerequisites

In order to get the most out of this lab, you should be comfortable with cyber forensics best practices (chain of evidence, etc.) and be comfortable with a Linux/Unix command line.

Expected Duration

4 hours, self-paced. Pause and continue at any time.

GRR Rapid Response is an open source live forensics tool originally created by Google. GRR allows an investigator to collect data about running systems on a network, anywhere from one system to thousands. In this exercise, students will perform live remote forensic investigations against running systems. Without having to take the systems offline for imaging, students will examine running processes and network connections, files and disk artifacts, and registry keys across multiple target machines in a forensically-sound manner.

Prerequisites

You should have a basic familiarity with computer forensics processes and tools in order to get the most out of this lab.

Analyzing a suspect system "live", before disconnecting it and imaging the disks, often yields valuable forensic evidence. Further, it can help you determine whether a crime has been committed at all, or whether the system contains evidence at all, thereby avoiding time-consuming examination of irrelevant machines. The Volatility® framework is the dominant open-source memory analysis framework, examining RAM snapshots from a large variety of operating systems in multiple formats. This exercise introduces students to the process of capturing a live RAM image and analyzing it using Volatility. Students will learn about several Volatility plugins for analyzing a Windows memory image, then analyze actual RAM images, including one with active malware, and view the results.

Analyzing a suspect system "live", before disconnecting it and imaging the disks, often yields valuable forensic evidence. Further, it can help you determine whether a crime has been committed at all, or whether the system contains evidence at all, thereby avoiding time-consuming examination of irrelevant machines. Rekall is an advanced, open-source memory capture and analysis framework that has expanded to include a variety of live incident response tools. This exercise introduces students to the Rekall framework, both for extracting evidence from memory images and for analyzing the current live state of the system. Students will learn about several Rekall tools, both on the command line and via the interactive console, for analyzing memory images. Students will then analyze several images of Windows systems with in-memory malware.

This course builds on the Introduction to P2P Forensics in order to provide students with a deeper understanding of how to extract evidence from a suspect’s hard drive. Students learn detailed file formats used by popular P2P software and methods for extracting information by hand. The course concludes with a hands-on practical using Architecture Technology Corporation’s P2P Marshal™ and provided forensic disk images using Microsoft Windows®.

A copy of the P2P Marshal software is available free of charge to anyone enrolled in this course.

Prerequisites

You should complete the Introduction to P2P Forensics course first in order to get the most of this exercise.
