This week at WinHEC, we were able to talk to silicon, hardware, and device partners about the advances we are making in Windows 10 to simplify building Windows devices, drivers, and apps. This talk covered the key advances we disclosed this week, which include:
The Windows 10 device platform allows IHVs to develop a single universal driver that can be deployed across all Windows 10 device families (e.g. PCs, phones, IoT).
The Windows 10 device platform provides new tools and techniques to reduce the cost and complexity of imaging and manufacturing Windows 10 devices.
In-market and new hardware development boards will support Windows 10 and Windows universal drivers.
Windows 10 will include a new IoT edition for small devices that is tuned to run Windows universal apps and drivers and is royalty free to makers and device builders.
Acquiring and analyzing physical memory as done by forensics professionals is a skill crucial to understanding how an operating system works or worked during the incident. For hobbyists, working with memory can be useful to perform troubleshooting and understand how certain solutions work. Just as it is crucial to understand operating system internals and security aspects, it is equally critical to understand what's in the operating system's memory. The valuable content contains evidence of user actions, hacker's tasks, malicious code behaviors, and the story of what happened on a system.
During this session Paula explains and shows the techniques for memory acquisition, techniques for grabbing the juicy data, and why it is so amazing to find someone's memory dump! This session is really intense but practical at the same time, as always it is packed with a lot of live demos and stories!
