Memory forensics provides cutting edge technology to helpinvestigate digital attacks Memory forensics is the art of analyzing computer memory (RAM)to solve digital crimes. As a follow-up to the best seller MalwareAnalyst's Cookbook, experts in the fields of malware, security, anddigital forensics bring you a step-by-step guide to memoryforensics—now the most sought after skill in the digitalforensics and incident response fields. Beginning with introductory concepts and moving toward theadvanced, The Art of Memory Forensics: Detecting Malware andThreats in Windows, Linux, and Mac Memory is based on a five daytraining course that the authors have presented to hundreds ofstudents. It is the only book on the market that focusesexclusively on memory forensics and how to deploy such techniquesproperly. Discover memory forensics techniques: How volatile memory analysis improves digitalinvestigations Proper investigative steps for detecting stealth malware andadvanced threats How to use free, open source tools for conducting thoroughmemory forensics Ways to acquire memory from suspect systems in a forensicallysound manner The next era of malware and security breaches are moresophisticated and targeted, and the volatile memory of a computeris often overlooked or destroyed as part of the incident responseprocess. The Art of Memory Forensics explains the latesttechnological innovations in digital forensics to help bridge thisgap. It covers the most popular and recently released versions ofWindows, Linux, and Mac, including both the 32 and 64-biteditions.

This hands-on textbook provides an accessible introduction to the fundamentals of digital forensics. The text contains thorough coverage of the theoretical foundations, explaining what computer forensics is, what it can do, and also what it can’t. A particular focus is presented on establishing sound forensic thinking and methodology, supported by practical guidance on performing typical tasks and using common forensic tools. Emphasis is also placed on universal principles, as opposed to content unique to specific legislation in individual countries. Topics and features: introduces the fundamental concepts in digital forensics, and the steps involved in a forensic examination in a digital environment; discusses the nature of what cybercrime is, and how digital evidence can be of use during criminal investigations into such crimes; offers a practical overview of common practices for cracking encrypted data; reviews key artifacts that have proven to be important in several cases, highlighting where to find these and how to correctly interpret them; presents a survey of various different search techniques, and several forensic tools that are available for free; examines the functions of AccessData Forensic Toolkit and Registry Viewer; proposes methods for analyzing applications, timelining, determining the identity of the computer user, and deducing if the computer was remote controlled; describes the central concepts relating to computer memory management, and how to perform different types of memory analysis using the open source tool Volatility; provides review questions and practice tasks at the end of most chapters, and supporting video lectures on YouTube. This easy-to-follow primer is an essential resource for students of computer forensics, and will also serve as a valuable reference for practitioners seeking instruction on performing forensic examinations in law enforcement or in the private sector.

Digital forensics deals with the acquisition, preservation, examination, analysis and presentation of electronic evidence. Networked computing, wireless communications and portable electronic devices have expanded the role of digital forensics beyond traditional computer crime investigations. Practically every crime now involves some aspect of digital evidence; digital forensics provides the techniques and tools to articulate this evidence. Digital forensics also has myriad intelligence applications. Furthermore, it has a vital role in information assurance -- investigations of security breaches yield valuable information that can be used to design more secure systems. Advances in Digital Forensics XI describes original research results and innovative applications in the discipline of digital forensics. In addition, it highlights some of the major technical and legal issues related to digital evidence and electronic crime investigations. The areas of coverage include: Themes and Issues Internet Crime Investigations Forensic Techniques Mobile Device Forensics Cloud Forensics Forensic Tools This book is the eleventh volume in the annual series produced by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) Working Group 11.9 on Digital Forensics, an international community of scientists, engineers and practitioners dedicated to advancing the state of the art of research and prac tice in digital forensics. The book contains a selection of twenty edited papers from the Eleventh Annual IFIP WG 11.9 International Conference on Digital Forensics, held in Orlando, Florida in the winter of 2015. Advances in Digital Forensics XI is an important resource for researchers, faculty members and graduate students, as well as for practitioners and individuals engaged in research and development efforts for the law enforcement and intelligence communities. Gilbert Peterson, Chair, IFIP WG 11.9 on Digital Forensics, is a Professor of Computer Engineering at the Air Force Institute of Technology, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, USA. Sujeet Shenoi is the F.P. Walter Professor of Computer Science and a Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Tulsa, Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA.

Using a well-conceived incident response plan in the aftermath of an online security breach enables your team to identify attackers and learn how they operate. But, only when you approach incident response with a cyber threat intelligence mindset will you truly understand the value of that information. With this practical guide, you’ll learn the fundamentals of intelligence analysis, as well as the best ways to incorporate these techniques into your incident response process. Each method reinforces the other: threat intelligence supports and augments incident response, while incident response generates useful threat intelligence. This book helps incident managers, malware analysts, reverse engineers, digital forensics specialists, and intelligence analysts understand, implement, and benefit from this relationship. In three parts, this in-depth book includes: The fundamentals: get an introduction to cyber threat intelligence, the intelligence process, the incident-response process, and how they all work together Practical application: walk through the intelligence-driven incident response (IDIR) process using the F3EAD process—Find, Fix Finish, Exploit, Analyze, and Disseminate The way forward: explore big-picture aspects of IDIR that go beyond individual incident-response investigations, including intelligence team building
