1. 2009-M57 "Patents" scenario
 +
 
 +
  This scenario involves a small company called M57 which was engaged
 +
  in prior art searches for patents. The fictional company is
 +
  contacted by the local police in November 2009 after a person
 +
  purchases a computer from Craigslist and discovers "kitty porn" on
 +
  the computer. The police trace the computer back to the M57
 +
  company.
 +
 
 +
  The scenario actually involves three separate criminal activities:
 +
      1 - Exfiltration of proprietary information by an M57 employee.
 +
      2 - Stealing of M57's property and selling it on Craigslist.
 +
      3 - The possession of "kitty porn" photos by an M57 employee.
 +
 
 +
  This is an involved scenario which has the following information
 +
  available to students trying to "solve" the case:
 +
    * Disk image of the computer that was sold on Craigs List
 +
    * Disk images of the firm's five computers when the police show up.
 +
    * Disk images of the four USB drives that were found on-site
 +
      belonging to M57 employees
 +
    * The RAM image of each computer just before the disk was imaged.
 +
 
 +
There are approximately 2-4 weeks of use on each computer.
 +
 
 +
2. Nitroba University Harassment Scenario
 +
 
 +
  This scenario involves a harassment case at the fictional Nitroba
 +
  University.
 +
 
 +
  Nitroba's IT department has received an email from Lily Tuckrige, a
 +
  teacher in the Chemistry Department.  Tuckrige has been receiving
 +
  harassing emails and she suspects that they are being sent by a
 +
  student in her class Chemistry 109, which she is teaching this
 +
  summer.  The email was received at Tuckridge's personal email
 +
  account, lilytuckrige@yahoo.com. She took a screenshot of the web
 +
  browser and sent it in.
 +
 
 +
  The system administrator who received the complaint wrote back to
 +
  Tuckridge that Nitroba needed the full headers of the email
 +
  message. Tuckridge responded by clicking the "Full message headers"
 +
  button in Yahoo Mail and sent in another screen shot, this one with
 +
  mail headers.
 +
 
 +
  The mail header shows that the mail message originated from the IP
 +
  address 140.247.62.34, which is a Nitroba student dorm room. Three
 +
  women share the dorm room. Nitroba provides an Ethernet connection in
 +
  every dorm room but not Wi-Fi access, so one of the women's friends
 +
  installed a Wi-Fi router in the room. There is no password on the
 +
  Wi-Fi.
 +
 
 +
  Because several email messages appear to come from the IP address,
 +
  Nitroba decides to place a network sniffer on the ethernet port. All
 +
  of the packets are logged. On Monday 7/21 Tuckridge received another
 +
  harassing email. But this time instead of receiving it directly, the
 +
  perpetrator sent it through a web-based service called
 +
  "willselfdestruct.com."  The website briefly shows the message to
 +
  Tuckridge, and then the website reports that the "Message Has Been
 +
  Destroyed."
 +
 
 +
  Students are provided with the screen shots, the packets that were
 +
  collected from the Ethernet tap, and the Chem 109 roster. Their job
 +
  is to determine if one of the students in the class was responsible
 +
  for the harassing email and to provide clear, conclusive evidence
 +
  to support your conclusion.
 +
 
 +
'''RESEARCH DATA SETS'''
 +
 
 +
We are also making available an enlarged "research data set" which
 +
contains a wealth of information that can be used by students
 +
interested in RAM, Network, or Disk Forensics.
 +
 
 +
The research data set was created at the same time as the
 +
2009-M57 Patents dataset but contains substantially more information:
 +
 
 +
  * All of the IP packets in and out of the M57 test network.
 +
  * Daily disk images and RAM captures of each computer on the network.
 +
 
 +
This data is not needed to "solve" the scenario, but it might be
 +
interesting for students that are:
 +
 
 +
  * Interested in learning about RAM analysis and needs a source of
 +
    RAM images.
 +
 
 +
  * Interested in network forensics and wants packets.
 +
 
 +
  * Interested in writing software that does "disk differencing" or
 +
    can detect the installation of malware.
 +
 
 +
  * Wants examples of how a Windows registry is modified over time
 +
    with use.
 +

EDUCATIONAL DATA SETS

1. 2009-M57 "Patents" scenario

 This scenario involves a small company called M57 which was engaged
 in prior art searches for patents. The fictional company is
 contacted by the local police in November 2009 after a person
 purchases a computer from Craigslist and discovers "kitty porn" on
 the computer. The police trace the computer back to the M57
 company.
 The scenario actually involves three separate criminal activities:
     1 - Exfiltration of proprietary information by an M57 employee.
     2 - Stealing of M57's property and selling it on Craigslist.
     3 - The possession of "kitty porn" photos by an M57 employee.
 This is an involved scenario which has the following information
 available to students trying to "solve" the case:
    * Disk image of the computer that was sold on Craigs List
    * Disk images of the firm's five computers when the police show up.
    * Disk images of the four USB drives that were found on-site
      belonging to M57 employees
    * The RAM image of each computer just before the disk was imaged.
There are approximately 2-4 weeks of use on each computer.

2. Nitroba University Harassment Scenario

 This scenario involves a harassment case at the fictional Nitroba
 University.
 Nitroba's IT department has received an email from Lily Tuckrige, a
 teacher in the Chemistry Department.  Tuckrige has been receiving
 harassing emails and she suspects that they are being sent by a
 student in her class Chemistry 109, which she is teaching this
 summer.  The email was received at Tuckridge's personal email
 account, lilytuckrige@yahoo.com. She took a screenshot of the web
 browser and sent it in.
 The system administrator who received the complaint wrote back to
 Tuckridge that Nitroba needed the full headers of the email
 message. Tuckridge responded by clicking the "Full message headers"
 button in Yahoo Mail and sent in another screen shot, this one with
 mail headers.
 The mail header shows that the mail message originated from the IP
 address 140.247.62.34, which is a Nitroba student dorm room. Three
 women share the dorm room. Nitroba provides an Ethernet connection in
 every dorm room but not Wi-Fi access, so one of the women's friends
 installed a Wi-Fi router in the room. There is no password on the
 Wi-Fi.
 Because several email messages appear to come from the IP address,
 Nitroba decides to place a network sniffer on the ethernet port. All
 of the packets are logged. On Monday 7/21 Tuckridge received another
 harassing email. But this time instead of receiving it directly, the
 perpetrator sent it through a web-based service called
 "willselfdestruct.com."  The website briefly shows the message to
 Tuckridge, and then the website reports that the "Message Has Been
 Destroyed."
 Students are provided with the screen shots, the packets that were
 collected from the Ethernet tap, and the Chem 109 roster. Their job
 is to determine if one of the students in the class was responsible
 for the harassing email and to provide clear, conclusive evidence
 to support your conclusion.

RESEARCH DATA SETS

We are also making available an enlarged "research data set" which contains a wealth of information that can be used by students interested in RAM, Network, or Disk Forensics.

The research data set was created at the same time as the 2009-M57 Patents dataset but contains substantially more information:

 * All of the IP packets in and out of the M57 test network.
 * Daily disk images and RAM captures of each computer on the network.

This data is not needed to "solve" the scenario, but it might be interesting for students that are:

 * Interested in learning about RAM analysis and needs a source of
   RAM images.
 * Interested in network forensics and wants packets.
 * Interested in writing software that does "disk differencing" or
   can detect the installation of malware.
 * Wants examples of how a Windows registry is modified over time
   with use.

OBTAINING THE DATA

You can obtain our data at the following addresses:

The M57 Corpus:
 * http://torrent.ibiblio.org/doc/187/torrents  (bit torrent form)
 * http://domex.nps.edu/corp/scenarios/2009-m57/  (individual files)
 Please download from the iBiblio bittorrent server if possible.
 There are a number of torrents available for your convenience.
 If you examine the manifests, you will notice that the files
 overlap (some disk images appearing in more than one torrent).
 Each torrent will place files into:
         [YOUR_LOCAL_DIRECTORY]/torrent_name/corp/scenarios/2009_m57/
 Please seed if possible! The "police materials" torrent references only those
 materials that would be captured in a raid (e.g. the final day of
 the scenario).
