7:30p - Lightning Talks

• Lisp & Python: Hy - Andres Moreno (15 minutes)

Time Intervals By Extending the Datetime Library - Kyle Marek-Spartz

• Parsing data with Construct - Benjamin Riggs

• Mobile App Forensics Python Plug-in Development - John J. Carney, Esq. & Don Huettl (30 minutes)

Digital forensic practitioners are facing a challenging problem today keeping up with the sky rocketing popularity of mobile apps on smart phones and tablets. Mobile apps available for the public to download from app stores are growing exponentially and now number into the millions. Digital evidence from these apps is frequently material to criminal and civil cases and investigations. Yet app evidence is time consuming and costly to decode, analyze, and produce while facing deadlines and a backlog of cases. What can be done to solve this industry wide app challenge?

This session will present a case study in mobile app forensics development that points to a solution. Mobile examiners can step up and become developers of Python scripts or plug-ins that meet the need for cost effective evidence retrieval from mobile apps not yet supported by mobile device forensic tools vendors. The presenters will describe the development environment and process for decoding, authoring, and testing a plug-in for examining an unsupported mobile messaging app on an Android mobile device using Cellebrite’s UFED Physical Analyzer. Lastly, they will point the way to resources and documentation to educate and support examiners who want to develop their own plug-ins.

    I didn't have any slides (since it was just the code for https://pypi.python.org/pypi/datetime-interval), but if I did, I would put my presentation on the archive: https://github.com/PyMNtos/PyMNtos-presentation-archive

    Looks like a great lineup, but I have to cancel my RSVP. Hopefully the wait list can fill my spot.

    Peter, is the talk request still active? I can talk about scientific/engineering experience with Python.

      Peter, no worries. I'll miss the July event (Scipy Conference!) but will be in touch for the next meetup. Maybe after Scipy I'll have more to share too.

    Does anyone know why eval(' is '.join([str(False) for i in range(104813)]))

    doesn't segfault for me but

    eval(' is '.join([str(False) for i in range(104814)]))

    and everything above[masked] segaults?

    I can give a talk on representing time intervals (a duration of time with a specific start time) by extending the datetime module. I made a small library demonstrating this: https://pypi.python.org/pypi/datetime-interval

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
