When scanning evidence in Magnet AXIOM, most of the time the default artifact selection and options cover a wide range of case types. However there are times when applying additional options for a particular artifact could unlock a wealth of information otherwise thought unavailable. For example, knowing the user’s Windows password isn’t usually necessary to analyze their computer, however there are many apps such as browsers, Zoom, Dropbox, etc. that use the built in Windows data protection controls to encrypt their data on the user’s system. Knowing what these options offer can enable examiners to know when to enable certain features and assist in uncovering additional details that wouldn’t have otherwise been unlocked in the default scan. Join Jamie McQuaid as we walk through some of these options to help you better understand their value to your investigation and when they should be applied.
