Mac Support in AXIOM Continues with More AirDrop Artifacts

With the recent releases of both AXIOM 3.8 and 3.9, we’ve added additional Mac support to parse the unified log for entries surrounding the use of AirDrop. You can review these AirDrop artifacts on both computer and mobile evidence sources.

Whether your macOS/iOS case is based on intellectual property theft from an organization and identifying how that data was exfilled, or a criminal investigation tracking contraband on devices, AirDrop should be investigated as a potential source of how that data was moved.

Go in-depth on what you can get from the AirDrop in this how-to document.

Rebuilt Desktop

Rebuilt Desktops is a new artifact that allows users to view an approximation of what a given Windows user’s desktop looks like, including wallpapers, monitor configurations, and icon positioning—without having to virtualize the image.

Many examiners, as part of their court preparation, will virtualize images in an effort to show non-technical stakeholders the look and feel of someone’s Windows environment. While this is powerful when it comes to painting a clear picture of possible intent of a suspect, virtualizing an image often requires additional software and time. The Rebuilt Desktops artifact aims to help provide a visual reference without the need of virtualizing the entire suspect machine.

Sync Tags Between Artifacts and File System

In AXIOM 3.9, you now have the ability to sync tags applied to items between the filesystem and artifacts explorer. You can perform an export for all tagged artifacts and files and include those tagged files from the filesystem in reports. ​ Check out this how-to video to learn more:

In addition, we’ve also updated AXIOM to automatically attempt BitLocker ClearKey when detected.
