About the Registry Artifacts – Learn more about the functions of the Registry artifacts running a Windows operating system. Students will explore how an artifact category was populated and identify raw information in both hexadecimal encoding and plain text.

Validate Registry Information – Validating the information examiners are shown through any forensic tool is especially important in a digital forensics case, and this lesson will explore how the Registry explorer in Axiom can be used to validate information, using source and location links. This lesson also covers the use of third-party tools to validate the data.

Investigate OS and Registry Artifacts – Focusing on user accounts and time zone artifacts, this lesson will introduce students to tagging in Axiom and working with hexadecimal values.

Encryption & Credentials Artifacts Within Axiom Examine – An introduction to working with encryption and anti-forensic artifacts, this lesson covers the identification of encrypted files or containers and the presence of anti-forensic software within the evidence.

Decrypting an Encrypted BitLocker Drive – The case scenario handles methodologies for decrypting encrypted drives and adding this evidence to an existing case, including using Axiom to scan for recovery keys that will assist in decryption.

Refined Results Overview – Covering the uses of the Refined Results category and the different artifacts associated with it. Students will also be able to gain a solid understanding of applying filters and search options, as well as tagging evidential artifacts.

Cloud Service URL Artifact – Review and understand the relevance of several cloud service artifacts and perform multiple searching and filtering to hone in on key evidence. The World Map View is shown to explore the location data stored in certain artifacts. 

Locally Accessed Files and Folders Artifact – A vital resource to track local documents and other file access, including being able to identify devices that might have earlier been attached to the computer. This lesson also explores the rebuilt user’s desktop and the use of identifiers and profiles, to track technology and people connected to the evidence.

SQLITE Databases, Web History, and Web Visits - Exploring all web-related artifacts is vital to the majority of digital forensic investigations. This lesson identifies key browser-related artifacts and how databases provide evidence for these artifacts. Students will be able to explore SQLite databases and how to find key material in a database using Axiom.

Downloads, Cached Content, and Bookmarks - Understanding the relevance of cached web content found on the device is critical to a sound investigative mindset. This lesson will also cover JSON files and how to validate the data from the Artifacts explorer.

Session Data - This lesson focuses on the use of Google Chrome, including maximizing the information obtained from Session Data, as well as cookies, and examining the different sources and types of web visits. This lesson also explores using the Time Range filter to track activity.

Identifying Different Email Artifacts in Axiom -  Navigating to the Email & Calendar category in Axiom allows the students to explore the emails, where they will learn how to read email headers and extract IP addresses and significant dates and times from the emails.

Recovering Email Attachments form mail clients supported by Axiom -  Axiom understands the importance of quickly identifying files sent via email. This lesson allows students to understand how to work with emails and use the links to switch between attachments and source emails.

Searching Emails in Axiom – Understanding the nature of emails will allow students to use advanced search filtering to quickly reduce a potentially huge email store, down to just a few key artifacts.

Exploring OS Artifacts – MRU Docs, Jump Lists,  Prefetch Files -  Understand the importance of Prefetch files and how they relate to program execution. This lesson will also explore Jump Lists and the rich data that can be parsed from this source.

Exploring OS Artifacts – Windows Event Logs -  The Windows Event Logs can seem overwhelming at first, but this lesson will show students how to dive into the data and use the advanced filtering of Axiom, together with data collected from other artifacts to piece together activity caused by the suspect. This lesson also covers Windows Timeline, a lesser-known Windows component that tracks user activity across the computer.

Features of Pictures and Videos – This lesson will show how to identify the types of media supported by Axiom, including how to search for, locate, and tag files to review. Students will learn about image and video artifacts and how the differing views of Magnet Axiom make it easy to review and categorize them.

Features and Functions of MagnetAI -  Using automation is so beneficial to examiners and this lesson shows Content-Based Image Retrieval usage to find pictures relevant to the investigation. This lesson also introduces categorizing and grading images.

Features of Office Wellness and Media Explorer - Continuing the categorizing of pictures, this lesson describes how Axiom makes it easy to protect those that have to categorize illegal content through a suite of Officer Wellness features. The Media Explorer is used to filter media based on grouping, including stacking images by hash.

Features of Connections and Timeline Explorer - This lesson introduces working with Connections and the Timeline explorer so that students can identify related artifacts and data fragments. Students will also be able to export a CSV report from their cases.

Working With Portable Cases – This lesson describes the process of creating a Portable Case for review by external or internal stakeholders. The use of tagging within Portable Case is described as it differs from Axiom. Lastly, the lesson covers the ability to merge a Portable Case back to the main case, and the important caveats to be aware of.

Exporting Case Artifacts From Axiom - There is often cause to export files from the case for external review.
