Oxygen Forensics Releases Cutting-Edge Integration to Categorize Images and Unveils TamTam Messenger Cloud Extraction

Alexandria, VA - December 5, 2019 - Oxygen Forensics, a global leader in digital forensics for law enforcement, federal, and corporate clients, today announced their flagship software, Oxygen Forensic Detective 12.1, Powered by JetEngine, will bring image categorization and grouping, allowing investigators to use AI to sort and categorize images into twelve categories, including drugs, weapons, alcohol, and nudity, to more quickly find pertinent images to an investigation. The latest update also includes TamTam Messenger extraction capabilities, following the breaking news that as of early December 2019, it is suspected TamTam is the new, preferred communication service for ISIS supporters. Now Oxygen Forensic Detective 12.1, Powered by JetEngine, will allow investigators to extract chats, calls, contacts, and other information from the TamTam cloud. 

The image categorization innovative implementation further bolsters Oxygen Forensics with a best-in-class object recognition software, and comes on the heels of incorporating facial recognition technology earlier this year. TamTam data extraction, along with object and facial recognition and many other robust features are included in Oxygen Forensic Detective 12.1, Powered by JetEngine with no fees or add-on costs, continuing the software’s reputation as the number one, all-in-one digital forensic solution. The newly added TamTam data extraction gives investigators combatting terrorism the ability to obtain data from ISIS’s newly preferred communication platform, ensuring national and international law enforcement entities have all the tools they need. This quick and robust addition to the full, digital forensics suite demonstrates Oxygen Forensics’ unparalleled speed and efficacy in adding new features investigators of all kinds need.

“Imagine law enforcement officers on scene, having eye witness reports of a red van in a robbery. Now, with the image categorization integration, investigators can seamlessly and quickly sort through thousands of images to find the red van. It doesn’t stop there—guns, nudity, drug paraphernalia—investigators can easily sort images to get what they need for all types of investigations,” said Lee Reiber, COO of Oxygen Forensics. “We also added TamTam data extraction almost immediately after we found out that’s the preferred platform for ISIS supporters. Our goal every day is to bring law enforcement and corporate investigators the single most comprehensive digital forensics tool out there, with no additional costs, and sometimes that means a fast turnaround to add new features so investigators can stay ahead of criminals and terrorists. I’m confident Oxygen Forensics Detective continues to be second to none.”

The twelve, base categories of images also include extremism, graphic violence, and more, drastically speeding up criminal investigations and internal corporate audits while reducing case backlog. The average person has over 600 photos on their phone and there are over 230 million smartphones in the United States alone, meaning the amount of digital data in an average criminal or corporate investigation is staggering and speed remains one of the most crucial factors for success. Oxygen Forensic Detective 12.1, Powered by JetEngine remains the undisputed digital forensics software.

The Oxygen Forensic Detective Suite is available to previously vetted and appropriately licensed law enforcement organizations. The suite is also available to private customers for investigations and corporate in-house analysis.

Oxygen Forensics introduces advanced support for Parrot drones and exclusively uncovers BlaBlaCar trips

Alexandria, VA – Feb. 13, 2019 – Oxygen Forensics, a leading global provider of digital forensic investigation software for government, law enforcement, and enterprise organizations, has released an update to its flagship product, Oxygen Forensic® Detective, introducing advanced features to support Parrot drone flight logs extracted from either an installed mobile app and even a physical dump along with the exclusive ability to extract and parse BlaBlaCar and CoverMe data.

The new release offers extraction of Apple Health data from the cloud account via login/password  or token and the ability to collectively analyze file systems from several extractions in a single view within Oxygen Forensics’ JetEngine.

 

“Keeping the world safe should be the subtitle of this release” says Lee Reiber, COO of Oxygen Forensics.  “With our continued innovation and support of the newest technologies being encountered by our customers daily we have risen to the challenge once again.  In 11.2 we released the first support for BlaBlaCar, a world-wide ridesharing program, as well as CoverMe, and app used to conceal data, often for nefarious reasons, along with unique support for Parrot drones and health apps.”  “Listening to our customers, and their operational needs, will continue to be a priority for us.  This commitment is what sets us apart in a growing industry”

Headlines around the world during the recent months have highlighted the growing danger caused by recreational drones. The Gatwick drone issue that grounded all the flights for several days is a good example of it. Oxygen Forensic Detective had previously released support for data parsing from FreeFlight Pro, the official piloting mobile app for Parrot drones. However, the new version now delivers the ability to import and parse Parrot’s flight logs. Now investigators can view geo coordinates containing timestamps along with metadata that includes: altitude, velocity, ground speed, Wi-Fi signal, battery level, current satellite numbers, and more.

New Oxygen Forensics updates put one of the world’s fastest, most comprehensive digital forensic platforms in the hands of investigators

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Dec. 6, 2018 – Oxygen Forensics, a global provider of digital forensic investigation software to law enforcement, government and enterprise organizations, introduced today an update to its product enabling forensic investigators to process and examine large volumes of data at record speed. The update, which includes a new module called Oxygen Forensic® JetEngine, not only makes Oxygen Forensic® Detective 11.1 one of the most comprehensive analysis tools on the market for examining data from mobile devices, cloud services, drones and IoT devices, but also one of the fastest in the world.

While smartphones represent the handheld key to an individual’s digital identity and activity, only a small portion of the data collected about a person is stored on the phone itself. Complemented by various network devices such as laptops, drones, health trackers and connected home assistants, and powered by cloud services, the amount of data about an individual relevant to an investigation grows exponentially over time.

“Analyzing a dozen or more cell phones from different individuals can lead to quite a volume of data – not just from the phones alone, but also from online data and accounts associated with the phones,” noted Bryan Neumeister, a court-certified forensic expert and CEO of USA Forensic. “JetEngine has given us the ability to bulk-download information from various websites and backup files and incorporate that into a case database quickly and effortlessly.”

The JetEngine module enables users to remove processing memory limitations by expanding or upgrading the hardware used in extracting and processing data. Many advanced forensic labs leverage multi-core processors or multiple configurations to examine many devices and accounts at once as part of one or more investigations. Now, these investigators can take full advantage of these hardware components by removing limitations of the software.

Lee Reiber, chief operating officer for Oxygen Forensics, commented, “Finding relevant evidence across multiple devices and accounts is already like finding a needle in a haystack and law enforcement officers face haystacks that grow bigger every day. We designed JetEngine specifically to help investigators tackle enormous amounts of data quickly and efficiently. For high-stakes criminal investigations such as murder cases and terrorist activity, cutting the time spent retrieving and sifting through data by 50 percent has the potential to save countless lives.”

Oxygen Forensic® JetEngine, along with several other new features including industry-exclusive support for Uber, Fitbit, Google Fit and Samsung Health, is available today for Oxygen Forensics customers to download and begin using. For more information regarding this update or Oxygen Forensic® Detective, visit www.oxygen-forensic.com.

Oxygen Forensic® Detective Version 11.1 Update Highlights

  • Introducing Oxygen Forensic® JetEngine, a module enabling rapid parsing of large data sets 50% faster than competing platforms
  • Full support for extracting and examining cloud data from Fitbit, Google Fit and Samsung Health

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Oct. 11, 2018 – Oxygen Forensics, the D.C. area provider of software enabling law enforcement organizations to collect and examine evidence from digital devices, has released the latest version of its flagship product, Oxygen Forensic® Detective. The new set of features builds on 18 years of digital forensics capabilities to support the growing needs of investigators with expanded support for smartphones in addition to new tools to examine connected home devices, smartwatches, and encrypted cloud data when involved in criminal activity.

“Increasingly, the ‘eyes and ears’ of our personal digital networks – smartwatches, connected home devices, and other technologies that respond to our voices or movements – are the most reliable witnesses to a crime,” explained Lee Reiber, COO of Oxygen Forensics. “With this new version of Detective, we aim to empower investigators in solving their toughest cases using the most detailed data available by overcoming roadblocks and collecting more data from the central nervous system of these networks, the cloud.”

Headlines around the world during the recent years have highlighted the growing disparity between technology manufacturers and law enforcement, sparking debate regarding when and how data from smartphones and other devices can be secured for investigation. Similarly, law enforcement has been applauded for solving many high-profile crimes using data from these devices. Fitbit data retrieved through an Amazon Echo is currently being used in prosecution for the murder of Karen Navarra in San Jose, and the British government has begun pursuing organized crime rings through decryption of communications using WhatsApp.

Oxygen Forensic® Detective is leveraged by investigators in thousands of cases around the world to provide prosecutors with the digital evidence necessary to solve crimes like these and make the world a safer place. 

Oxygen Forensic® Detective Version 11.0 Update Highlights

  • Extract WhatsApp messages through the WhatsApp server using a QR code
  • Examine IoT connected home devices using Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant

Alexandria, VA – Aug. 8, 2018 – Oxygen Forensics, a leading global provider of digital forensic investigation software for government, law enforcement, and enterprise organizations, has released an update to its flagship product, Oxygen Forensic® Detective, introducing advanced features to support the extraction of data from locked smartphones, import of extractions performed from the popular GrayKey iPhone cracking software, and analysis of device logs including history of Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connections.

“If you’ve read any headlines lately about digital forensics, then you’ve heard of GrayKey,” stated Lee Reiber, chief operating officer of the D.C. area-based software company. “The team at Grayshift has built a great product to help law enforcement organizations access locked iPhones for examination, and we’re excited to support customers using this tool with advanced analytics.”

Oxygen Forensics products offer investigators the ability to access and extract data from thousands of smartphones, drones, cloud accounts, and Internet of Things (IoT) components; however, many investigations in recent years have been limited by security constraints on Apple devices. GrayKey has caught the attention of investigators due to its ability to work around these security constraints and grant access to locked iPhones.

Oxygen Forensics customers who are using its software to analyze data extracted from devices are now able to import device images from GrayKey to analyze the data and combine it with other digital evidence sources in their investigations.

Oxygen Forensics adds support for Samsung Secure Folder and lock screen bypass enhancements

Alexandria, VA – May 31, 2018 - Oxygen Forensics, has released an update to its popular mobile forensic software allowing investigators exclusive access to mobile devices, applications, and cloud data not previously accessible through software solutions.

The company’s flagship software, Oxygen Forensic® Detective, enables investigators to access and extract data from thousands of mobile devices, applications, and storage locations to build stronger cases with digital evidence. The update to version 10.3, which most notably includes access to cloud backups of the Samsung Secure Folder and Viber messaging app, as well as expanded support in extracting from locked Android devices, will allow for more detailed investigations by law enforcement and government defense groups in legal proceedings.

“Our commitment to supporting digital investigations requires constant innovation to ensure we quickly deliver the most updated solutions to meet ever-evolving technological needs and supporting popular applications,” commented Lee Reiber, Oxygen Forensics COO. “The sooner law enforcement and defense organizations have access to these features, the sooner they can begin holding wrongdoers legally accountable for their actions.”

The Samsung Secure Folder represents one of many roadblocks investigators face when collecting digital evidence for a case. Users of supported Samsung devices may store files separately from the phone’s primary storage, allowing them to protect information with a separate set of security standards and access credentials. Oxygen Forensics’ software allows investigators exclusive access to backups of these protected files through cloud extraction to retrieve data relevant to a case.

Oxygen Forensic® Detective version 10.3 supports more than 7,000 smartphone and drone operating systems and applications – the most of any forensic software currently on the market – through both device physical extractions and cloud backup access. For more information on Oxygen Forensics or this software update, visit www.oxygen-forensic.com.

Oxygen Forensics Introduces New Method of Decrypting WhatsApp Data With Release of Oxygen Forensic Detective 10.2

Alexandria, VA – May 8, 2018Oxygen Forensics is a worldwide developer and provider of advanced forensic data examination tools for mobile devices, cloud services and drones, announced today that Oxygen Forensic® Detective 10.2 can now acquire a WhatApp Cloud token from Android devices.

Two months ago, Oxygen Forensics announced Oxygen Forensic Detective 10.1 that featured the ability to help decrypt WhatsApp iCloud or Google backups with a token.

Oxygen Forensics Continues Leadership Position on Drone Forensics by Adding Physical Extraction from DJI Drones

Alexandria, VA – April 10, 2018 - Oxygen Forensics, a worldwide developer and provider of advanced forensic data examination tools for mobile devices, cloud services and drones, announced today that its flagship software product, Oxygen Forensic® Detective v. 10.2, offers forensic detectives the industry-first ability to extract all information from a DJI drone with only a USB cable.

The new Oxygen Forensic® Detective v.10.2 allows forensics experts to connect the drone to their examination computer via USB cable and conduct a physical collection of the embedded storage chip. Once Oxygen Forensic® Detective recognizes the drone, a physical acquisition is available in only a few clicks that then reveals the drone’s complete flight history with GPS locations and metadata. This data includes valuable facts like speed, altitude, direction, and other evidentiary parameters. The drone flight path is then visualized in the built-in Oxygen Forensic® Maps (both online and offline) which gives a clear picture of where the drone has traveled.

“The number of recreational drones being used around the world is growing at an incredibly fast pace,” said Lee Reiber, COO, Oxygen Forensics. “It should come as no surprise that we’ll see the number of crimes involving drones also increasing exponentially. It has become essential for digital forensic experts to have a tool that combines automated extraction, parsing and analysis of drone data from all possible sources, and we’ve given our customers exactly that with more features expected in the weeks and months to come.”

In addition to the new ability to extract data with the physical drone and a USB cable, Oxygen Forensic® Detective (in version 10.1) also allows experts to extract drone data from DJI cloud, critical when the drone is damaged or cannot be acquired. With Oxygen Forensic® Cloud Extractor, forensics experts can analyze the user account information, the list of drones connected to this account, and the complete flight history of the drone(s), all from the DJI cloud.

Decryption of DJI Cloud Token

With Oxygen Forensic® Detective v.10.2, forensics experts can extract and decrypt the DJI cloud token directly from a mobile device (Apple iOS and Android) when the DJI GO or DJI GO 4 app is installed. A decrypted DJI token is shown in the Cloud Accounts section of Oxygen Forensic® Detective. The token is then used to access DJI cloud with just one click to reveal and extract the drone flight history. By using the token, experts leave no digital trace. DJI token extraction from a mobile device makes it possible to acquire all the vital drone information, even without the drone itself.

Oxygen Forensics Doubles Down on Drone Forensics by Providing Industry-Exclusive Support for DJI Cloud

Alexandria, VA – March 01, 2018 - Oxygen Forensics, a worldwide developer and provider of advanced forensic data examination tools for mobile devices, cloud services and drones, announced today that its flagship software product, Oxygen Forensic® Detective v. 10.1 can now obtain data from the DJI cloud, which is the data repository for all DJI drones. Oxygen Forensics does this through Oxygen Forensic® Cloud Extractor.

With almost a million registered drones in the United States alone and much more all over the world, drones take pictures and video and even can transport packages. Law enforcement continues to review methods to acquire data from drones that are involved in illegal activities, especially GPS location data such as altitude, direction of travel, speed, and facial recognition data that can reveal the flight data of the drone. This information is sometimes stored on the drone itself, but in the case of drones manufactured by DJI, this digital information is also stored in the DJI cloud.

“Gathering data from the DJI cloud is a feature exclusive to Oxygen Forensics. From the DJI cloud, we can obtain important data from a drone that crashed or was physically damaged,” said Lee Reiber, COO, Oxygen Forensics, Inc. “The DJI cloud is critical since it stores all the serial numbers of the drones associated with an account holder. If we can match serial numbers from the cloud to a specific device, then the authorities can find information about the owner of the drone.”

Oxygen Forensic® Detective is the only tool that allows forensics professionals the ability to extract and decode drone data from all possible sources: drones, the cloud and apps associated with drones. Drone data is transmitted and stored in either the user’s online account, the drone manufacturer’s cloud, or in some cases both locations. The additional data within the cloud represents a separate challenge for a mobile data forensics expert since manual extractions can be extremely complicated or just simply not possible for various reasons. With the use of Oxygen Forensic® Detective, experts are now able to access the drone cloud and extract the information about the account, the drone serial number, the flight history, and other associated metadata.

Any images found to be suspicious on seized mobile devices will be copied to the Project VIC section and classified according to the Project VIC Classification Standard

“Mobile devices have become weapons in the hands of individuals seeking to exploit our children,” said Richard Brown, Director of Project VIC. “Oxygen Forensics’ new technical capabilities will have a significant impact on efforts by law enforcement to rescue victims from abusers.”

Oxygen Forensic Detective X Launches with New WhatsApp Extraction Features

Alexandria, VA – November 16, 2017 — Oxygen Forensics, a worldwide developer and provider of advanced forensic data examination tools for mobile devices, cloud services and drones, today announced that its new flagship product, Oxygen Forensic® Detective X (version 10), which contains the industry- leading Oxygen Forensic® Cloud Extractor, has added new WhatsApp extraction features.

Advanced WhatsApp Extractions
Oxygen Forensic Detective X has added two industry-first features in the algorithm of WhatsApp data extraction, including:

  • WhatsApp backups decryption with 2-step verification - This verification is an optional feature that added to provide better security to the account. When enabled, any attempt to verify the phone number on a WhatsApp account needs to be accompanied by the six-digit PIN created by the user. The new Oxygen Forensic Cloud Extractor offers either the opportunity to enter the PIN (if it’s known) or several methods to deactivate it.
  • Unique WhatsApp data from the server - Oxygen Forensics has added a special WhatsApp Cloud service that allows forensics experts to acquire undelivered messages, unanswered calls and information about groups and contacts directly from the WhatsApp server. This service is useful in specific cases with damaged or locked devices. When forensic experts use the WhatsApp Cloud service, they can even obtain access to the WhatsApp server without the phone.

“Since the middle of this year, we’ve been able to decrypt WhatsApp backups from Google Drive without an encryption key from the device. For the Oxygen Forensic Detective X release, our team has been strategically focused on supporting investigations by continuing to provide industry firsts such as WhatsApp extractions,” said Lee Reiber, COO, Oxygen Forensics, Inc. “With Oxygen’s Cloud Extractor, we can now decrypt devices with 2-step verification, and acquire data from the WhatsApp server. Both were greatly needed to keep pace with 3rd party mobile apps – and are more industry firsts.”
