In 2018 Windows 10 introduced a new feature named "Timeline" which has seen enhancements in subsequent updates to the Operating System in 2018 ~ 2021. This feature acts like a browser for all your recent file and web interactions on the local computer as well as mobile devices and if enabled your additional trusted devices too. It provides a chronological view of software interactions, which not only contains the websites visited but all documents edited, the pictures you viewed as well as information of which machine it was interacted with last, most importantly the amount of time the user interacted with the item.

During this session we will take a deep dive into the artifacts this feature creates and learn how:

  • these artifacts may be used by the system and interpreted in a forensic examination
  • to deeper understand the complexities of Windows Timeline
  • to look at the SQLite database containing all the artifact
  • to understand the cloud-based synchronization issues
  • to interpret advanced SQLite queries into a more human readable format

The webinar will take place on August 26.
