'''BitLocker Disk Encryption''' (BDE) is [[Full Volume Encryption]] solution by [[Microsoft]] first included with the Enterprise and Ultimate editions of [[Windows|Windows Vista]]. It is also present in [[Windows 7]] along with a system for encrypting removable storage media devices, like [[USB]], which is called [[BitLocker To Go]].

Volumes encrypted with BitLocker will have a different signature than the standard [[NTFS]] header. Instead, they have in their volume header (first sector): <tt>2D 46 56 45 2D 46 53 2D</tt> or, in ASCII, <tt>-FVE-FS-</tt>.

Volumes encrypted with BitLocker To Go will have a hybrid encrypted volume, meaning that part of the volume is unencrypted and contains applications to unlock the volume and the other part of the volume is encypted. These volumes can be identified by the BitLocker GUID/UUID: 4967d63b-2e29-4ad8-8399-f6a339e3d00.

The actual data on the encrypted volume is protected with either 128-bit or 256-bit [[AES]] and optionally diffused using an algorithm called Elephant. The key used to do the encryption, the Full Volume Encryption Key (FVEK) and/or TWEAK key, is stored in the BitLocker metadata on the protected volume. The FVEK and/or TWEAK keys are encrypted using another key, namely the Volume Master Key (VMK). Several copies of the VMK are also stored in the metadata. Each copy of the VMK is encrypted using another key, also know as key-protector key. Some of the key-protectors are:

manage-bde.exe -status

manage-bde.exe -protectors -get C: -Type recoverypassword

The Defense Cyber Crime Center, or DC3, is a Department of Defense organization run by the Air Force Office of Special Investigations. The center consists of four divisions:

Events

The DC3 sponsors an annual conference, the DoD Cyber Crime Conference. They also run an annual forensics contest, the DC3 Digital Forensics Challenge. The winner of the challenge receives a free trip to the DoD Cyber Crime Conference.

History

The DC3 was formed in 2001 when the newly created DCCI was merged with the existing DCFL and DCITA (at the time called the Defense Computer Investigations Training Program (DCITP).
