Exploring the Wonders of Timesketch and Jupyter

In this webinar we will be harnessing the powers of notebooks, more specifically colab/jupyter notebooks, and Timesketch/plaso to solve an open source forensics challenge, the infamous case of the stolen szechuan sauce. The webinar will focus on how to use notebooks for investigations, to upload and analyze data, while storing it using Timesketch, and how the two tools can work together.

All the data for the challenge will be stored on the Timesketch demo server (https://demo.timesketch.org), making it easy for students to follow along in this interactive webinar, where we’ll solve the challenge step by step using notebooks, and the powers of pandas and Timesketch.
