Every device on a network generates some kind of log for each and every action carried out on the network. Capturing and analyzing the log files are important steps for investigating the security posture of the target network, as they contain information about all the system, device, and user activities that took place within the network.


The objective of this lab is to provide the forensic investigator with a solid understanding of how to capture and analyze the logs of a network, as well as other responsibilities. The lab aims to capture and analyze:
Log Capturing and Event Correlation
  • Security event logs
  • Application event logs
  • System event logs
  • Other logs of Microsoft Windows operating systems


James is working as a team leader in a MNC company. Sam is an efficient, honest, and dedicated member of James'™s team, but recently James noticed a big drop in Sam'™s performance. Through speaking with the other team members, James found out that Sam is wasting a lot of time browsing and chatting on social networking sites. James called Sam to ask him to explain the drop in his performance, and Sam lied, saying his current project was very difficult to understand and time consuming. Before taking any serious action against Sam, James wants to capture and analyze all the logs of Sam's computer to know how he is spending his time in the office. This way, he will be able to see if the rumors spread by the coworkers are true.
