agenda
Agenda
  • Forensics Background
  • Operating Systems Review
  • Select Windows Features
  • Vectors and Payloads
  • Forensics Process
  • Forensics Tools Demonstration
forensics background
Forensics Background
  • Inspection of computer system for evidence of:
    • crime
    • unauthorized use
  • Evidence gathering/preservation techniques for admissibility in court of law
  • Consideration of suspect's level of expertise
  • Avoidance of data destruction or compromise
operating system review
Operating System Review
  • What does an OS do?
operating system review1
Operating System Review
  • What does an OS do?
    • starts itself
    • low-level management of:
      • interrupts, time, memory, processes, devices (storage, communication, keyboard, display, etc.)
    • higher-level management of:
      • file system, users, user interface, apps
    • addresses issues of fairness, efficiency, data protection/access, workload balancing
select windows features
Select Windows Features
  • Kernel vs. User Mode
  • Kernel features (architecture)
    • device drivers
    • installable file system
    • object security
  • Services

Computing Devices: Simplistic

  • Computing Device
    • takes some input
    • processes it
      • OS, services, applications
    • provides some output
  • Network
    • connects device
  • Data

Computing Devices: Connections
  • removable media
    • floppy,CD/DVD,flash,microdrive
  • PC Card
  • wired
    • serial/parallel,USB,Firewire,IDE,SCSI,twisted pair
  • wireless
    • radio (802.11, cellular, Bluetooth)
    • Infrared (IR)
    • Ultrasound
vectors and payloads
Vectors and Payloads
  • Vector: route used to gain entry to computer
    • via a device without human intervention
    • via an unsuspecting or willing person's actions
  • Payload: what is delivered via the vector
    • malicious code
    • may be multiple payloads
    • spyware, rootkits, keystroke loggers, bots, illegals software, spamming, etc.
forensics process
Forensics Process
  • Assess
    • after permission is granted
    • determine how to approach affected system(s)
    • watch out for anti-forensics
    • how to stop computer processing?
  • Acquire
    • capture volatile data
    • copy hard drive
  • Analyze
volatile data
Volatile Data
  • All of RAM, plus paging area
  • Logged on users
  • Processes (regular and services)
  • Process memory
  • Buffers
  • Clipboard
  • Network Information
  • Command history
nonvolatile data
Nonvolatile Data
  • Partitions
  • Files
    • hidden, streams
  • Registry Keys
  • Recycle Bin
  • Scheduled Tasks
  • User information
  • Logs
what to look for
What to Look For
  • Know baseline system: what to expect of good system
  • Malware Footprint
    • in logs
    • on file system (changed dates/sizes)
    • in registry
    • in startup areas
    • in service list
    • in network connections
  • Abnormalcy – functionality, performance, traffic patterns
  • Cross-check with multiple tools
slide15
Microsoft Tools
  • Basic
      • Windows Update, Malicious Software Removal, Baseline Security Analyzer, Time Service, Routing and Remote Access, Event Viewer, EventCombMT, LocalService, NetworkService, Runas, systeminfo, auditpol
