Ananthalakshm iAmmal R CDAC-Trivandrum Cyber Security Group Scientist G
Technical Application Area: Other
If 'Other', please specify:
Cyber Forensics
Please give more details of new technical application area:
Win-LiFT is a Windows Live Forensics Tool which collects volatile data from a Windows Computer and analyse it to find forensically sound evidence. Win-LiFT consists Win-LiFTImagerBuilder and Win-LiFTAnalyzer tools. Win-LiFT enables volatile data acquisition using Win-LiFTImager and analysis of the Win-LiFTImagerBuilder, which runs in the Investigator’s machine, builds Win-LiFTImager tool to a USB Device. Win-LiFTImager is a Forensic Volatile Data Acquisition Tool that has the facility for capturing various kinds of volatile artefacts from the Suspect’s machine to the Win-LiFTImager USB. The volatile artefacts that cab be collected includes Running Processes, System Information, Network related information like network Neighbours, Network Connections, Process Port Connections, Routing Table, Network Interfaces etc., Scheduled Jobs, Shared Resources, Services List, Clipboard Content, System Users, PC On/Off Time, Drive Information, Loaded Drivers, Installed Applications, Recycle Bin Information, Printer Information, USB Information, Bluetooth Device Details, Jump Lists etc. The imager too has the facility to dump Physical Memory content from Windows Systems. Win-LiFTAnalyzer analyses the data collected by the Win-LiFTImager and creates a detailed report after analysis. This analysis tool is capable of analysing the Live Forensics data captured by Win-LiFTImager from the Suspect’s machine. The tool does advanced Memory Analysis of Windows Physical Memory dump to extract Running Process and its associated details, Network Information, Internet usage based Information including User Credentials used while browsing, MFT Records, Executable Reconstruction. The tool is capable of doing the structural Analysis of Reconstructed Executables. The tool do Registry Analysis, Event Log Analysis, Browser Forensics of IE, Chrome, Opera, Safari and Firefox. same using Win-LiFTAnalyzer.

It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
