Digital Forensic SIFTing – Mounting EWF or E01 evidence image files

Digital Forensic SIFTing – Mounting EWF or E01 evidence image files.

Introduction :

Over the past few years, many investigators are realizing that having to convert an image from one format to another is sometimes painful and extremely time consuming and fairly unnecessary at this point. Using a tool such as FTK Imager, seen below, is an example of converting an image from E01 to RAW format that could take hours and take up more storage than is necessary. There are many reasons that an investigator would like to examine the raw image. For me, I usually like to have access to the raw system for file carving, direct examination of the files, and utilization of free/open source tools such as log2timeline.

Rubik’s for cryptographers

Rubik’s for cryptographers

Abstract: Hard mathematical problems are at the core of security arguments in cryptography. In this paper, study mathematical generalizations of the famous Rubik’s cube puzzle, namely the factorization, representation and balance problems in non-Abelian groups. These problems arise naturally when describing the security of Cayley hash functions, a class of cryptographic hash functions with very interesting properties. The factorization problem is also strongly related to a famous long-standing conjecture of Babai, at the intersection of group theory and graph theory. A constructive proof of Babai’s conjecture would make all Cayley hash functions insecure, but on the other hand it would have many positive applications in graph theory and computer science. In this paper, we classify existing attacks against Cayley hash functions and we review known results on Babai’s conjecture. Despite recent cryptanalytic progress on particular instances, we show that the factorization, representation and balance problems presumably remain good sources of cryptographic hard problems. Our study demonstrates that Cayley hash functions deserve further interest by the cryptography community.

VoIP Hopper 2.01 Released – IP Phone VLAN Hopping Tool

VoIP Hopper 2.01 Released – IP Phone VLAN Hopping Tool

VoIP Hopper is a GPLv3 licensed security tool, written in C, that rapidly runs a VLAN Hop into the Voice VLAN on specific ethernet switches. VoIP Hopper does this by mimicking the behavior of an IP Phone, in Cisco, Avaya, and Nortel environments.

This requires two important steps in order for the tool to traverse VLANs for unauthorized access. First, discovery of the correct 12 bit Voice VLAN ID (VVID) used by the IP Phones is required. VoIP Hopper supports multiple protocol discovery methods (CDP, DHCP, LLDP-MED, 802.1q ARP) for this important first step. Second, the tool creates a virtual VoIP ethernet interface on the OS. It then inserts a spoofed 4-byte 802.1q vlan header containing the 12 bit VVID into a spoofed DHCP request.

Once it receives an IP address in the VoIP VLAN subnet, all subsequent ethernet frames are “tagged” with the spoofed 802.1q header.

VoIP Hopper is a VLAN Hop test tool but also a tool to test VoIP infrastructure security.

New Features

  • New “Assessment” mode: Interactive, menu driven command interface, improves ability to VLAN Hop in Pentesting when the security tester is working against an unknown network infrastructure
  • New VLAN Discovery methods (802.1q ARP, LLDP-MED)
  • LLDP-MED spoofing and sniffing support
  • Can bypass VoIP VLAN subnets that have DHCP disabled, and spoof the IP address and MAC address of a phone by setting a static IP
