Forensics in the Cloud




Objectives:     Process case evidence using Axiom

Locate and analyze “app” evidence in cloud accounts


Introduction:  This lab introduces you to acquiring evidence from cloud accounts. In the real world, you generally need app credentials to access cloud data. For this lab, assume you have already conquered this issue through analysis of the computer or tablet files.


Lab Resources:  

  • Magnet Axiom
  • User login for Dropbox (sign in with Google credentials) and Facebook ( Password: 0rahtas6
  • Magnet Axiom reference/artifact guide



During your investigation of the OWAT code, you suddenly discover additional subjects of interest. Ms. Marie Taylor is possibly selling a drug that goes by the street name ‘Molly Percocet’ and possibly other drugs.  This information was discovered on a Samsung Tablet. Ms. Taylor seems to communicate via Facebook Messenger. Additionally, Ms. Taylor had a few pictures on the tablet that resembled drugs, and also documents open that appeared were in relation to manufacturing drugs. Your team was able to retrieve login credentials from the tablet. We are hoping the same credentials will work on Ms. Taylor’s cloud accounts. Because this case is different than the OWAT scope of authority, assume you have already secured your additional warrants as needed.


PART 1 – Processing the Case:

Using the snapshots below as a guide, process the case to find artifacts for Facebook and Dropbox. Close the box when the processing is complete.

  • Go to the location where the case is stored on your computer. What kind of file is it saved in? Embed the file into the document. (Insert on the tool bar/Go to the Text box/Click on the arrow next to Object/Choose ‘Text from File’. Make sure all files are chosen to see all the documents.


  • Open the File System. What image did the acquisition create?  Take a screen shot of image.


  • Open the File System tree to show the two parent folders. What are the evidence sources (or the path location) for each folder? Open the tree so you can see all the subfolders. Take a screen shot of the source.  Return to the evidence screen.


PART 2 – Examining the Artifacts

  • Before you really start to examine the artifacts, build connections between them. Describe where you navigate to build them.


  • Find Marie Taylor’s Facebook Profile. What is her Facebook author number? Show the path to the page.


  • Navigate to identifiers. Who is the other person that it appears Marie is corresponding with?  Create profiles for both parties.  Before you close the profile box, take a screen shot of the profiles created.
  • Find that individual’s Facebook author id. Where did you go to find it?  Show the path of the artifact.


  • Go to Facebook messages. Find at least five artifacts of possible drug selling or making activity. Show the path and provide screen shots the artifacts.  Note: Make sure you are book marking the artifacts you find relevant to the case for your final report.


  • Find at least two Dropbox files that mention the making of drugs. Show the path to the documents.


  • From the previous question, show me the connections between the artifacts, if there are none, then state that.


PART 3 – Compiling a report of Evidence

Use the Reporting feature in Axiom to document ten pieces of evidence from this case.
