Improvements to Magnet AXIOM Cloud
In addition to AXIOM 1.2.6 now allowing you to acquire data from Google Hangouts using AXIOM Cloud, you can now also load previously generated cloud image acquisitions for analysis. Now you don’t have to delay processing and analyzing mobile and computer evidence while waiting for a cloud acquisition to complete.
Full Disk Decryption Using a Generated Password List
Thanks to our integration of Passware, we’ve included the ability to analyze content from drives running various types of encryption software (such as BitLocker, TrueCrypt and PGP). In 1.2.6, we’ve brought the ability to use a password dictionary list to attempt to decrypt any supported encrypted device. This, combined with wordlists created by using the AXIOM Wordlist Generator, will attempt to unlock a device by using possible common passwords when the password is not known.
Updated Reporting on Filesystem and Artifact Explorers
Finally, after updating to 1.2.6, you’ll be able to export a single report with tagged items from both the filesystem AND artifacts explorers — saving time by reporting the same way you go through the evidence.
