We are looking for a UK-based SME and university to apply for Eurostars2 joint research funding ( The company should be a “R&D performing SME.” The SME on the UK and Korean side will be considered the PI. Project topic areas in are ICT : Internet of Things; AI & Robotics; Augmented & Virtual Reality; Cyber Security. The current consortium has several ideas for the project, and are happy to discuss.

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 00:49:09 GMT Forensic Software: Tools for scanning dd images / Finding an encrypted file There is a script here to calculate the Shannon Entropy of a file. Maybe you could modify it to instead do the same for 10MB blocks of raw disk data. Then load the result into a spread sheet. The big random parts of the disk should then be obvious and it should be a simple matter to find the exact start of the random block by visual inspection and carve it out.

We took some notes and will work on being better prepared next time. @athulin sorry, no saved logs on our attempts with live distros (we didn't use the original boot system again after it was apprehended). I also believe it's probably a ZFS release issue. Sun, 19 Nov 2017 21:19:17 GMT Education and Training: Forensics Experts challenges Hello, guys!

With all due respect, you are completely failing to provide any meaningful detail. Explorer (right click) reports (not an example, what it does actually reports) .... ? while tool ..... reports .... ? What (EXACT) device is it? Whihc (EXACT) Windows version is it? Is it seen as "removable" or as "fixed" by Windows? Is it partitioned or not? Which filesystem(s) are in use? jaclaz Sun, 19 Nov 2017 16:32:41 GMT Mobile Phone Forensics: Write Blocker thefuf wrote: athulin wrote: Can you provide an example of such laws and such requirements? If you're thinking of national or regional legislation, ... what nation/region are you thinking of? Russia. I'm in the U.S. I'm not aware of any case law or legislation here that would make evidence from a live acquisition or mobile acquisition (using an agent, jailbreak, etc.) inadmissible. The generally accepted practice (from my readings and training) is to avoid unnecessary modification, minimize any changes you do make, and document everything. If you're in a place that prohibits a certain action or requires special permission, by all means follow your local laws.

I can see some substabtial content but have yet to find a way to view it (which I believe to be buffered video). Tried converting it, carving, VLC etc etc. Maybe Im just not getting it??..
