Welcome to F-Response
Thank you for purchasing F-Response. You have now extended the capabilities of your existing
arsenal of tools to enable them to work over an IP network. F-Response accomplishes this
through the use of a patented process (US 7,899,882 US 8,171,108 and patents pending); a part
of which includes leveraging the Internet Small Computer Systems Interface (iSCSI) protocol
standard as defined in RFC 3720 (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3720.txt).
Terminology
The iSCSI terms “Target” and “Initiator” are used throughout this manual. The choice of
“initiator” and “target” verbiage in the iSCSI definitions may prove confusing to forensics
practitioners because “target” carries a different definition in the field of computer forensics
versus iSCSI. In computer forensics, the system to be analyzed is generally referred to as the
“subject” system, whereas the system to which forensically sound data is collected is generally
referred to as the “target” system. In this manual, the forensic “subject” is an iSCSI “target”, i.e.
F-Response Target code is executed on the machine to be analyzed. For this reason, we want to
make clear that the use of the word “target” in this manual refers to the iSCSI definition, and not
the forensics definition. The definitions for Target and Initiator used in this manual are as
follows:
Target
F-Response Target code is to be executed on the machine(s) to be analyzed. All references to
“target” in this manual refer to the machine(s) being analyzed using F-Response target code.
Initiator
An iSCSI “initiator” is used to establish network connections to machines running F-Response
Target code. iSCSI initiator software must be installed on the machine from which analysis is to
be conducted over the network. F-Response Target code has been tested with Microsoft iSCSI
Initiator 2.0 software, included by default with newer Windows operating systems, and freely
available for download from the Microsoft web site.

Dropbox Credentials
Dropbox uses the web standard OAUTH for providing application access to accounts. With
OAUTH the application user, in this case the F-Response Cloud Connector user does not have
knowledge of the Dropbox username or password. Therefore in order to connect the Dropbox
using the Cloud Connector the Dropbox user must expressly approve access. The following dialog
and details further illustrate this process.
Configure Dropbox Credentials
The first step is to generate a token for requesting credentialed access. An examiner may
accomplish this by pressing on the “Generate” button. Upon indication of a successful Token
generation the examiner must now get the user to Authorize the newly generated Token. This
can be accomplished in one of two ways. Either open the url directly using “Open URL”, in this
case the examiner will need the username and password as they will be approving access on the
account holder’s behalf, or use the “Copy to Clipboard” option to generate a URL suitable for
sending to the account holder.

Regardless of the option selected, the account holder must approve access to their Dropbox
account, upon approval the web browser will be redirect to a page at F-Response.com with the
Request Token and optional Verifier.

The Request Token value (and any optional Verifier) as displayed on that page must be inputted
into the Dropbox Credentials dialog in the “Request Token” box. After this is complete, press
“Validate Access” to validate the newly acquired Request Token.
Validate Access will confirm the account holder’s account details, and present that information in
the “Name” box.
If this is the correct username and account, press “Add” to add the credential to the encrypted
credential store and “Save” to save the newly added credential.
It is important to note that all Cloud Storage credentials are saved, unlike the F-Response

The first step is to get the account holder to Authorize the Token. This can be accomplished in
one of two ways. Either open the url directly using “Open URL”, in this case the examiner will
need the username and password as they will be approving access on the account holder’s
behalf, or use the “Copy to Clipboard” option to generate a URL suitable for sending to the
account holder.

Cache Location
o All Email content is cached locally, use this option to specify a location to store
cache files.
IMAP Options
o Present Google Mail All Mail Folder?
 Enabling this option will show the Google “All Mail” Folder and make its
contents accessible.
o Consider zero byte messages throttling
 Enabling this option will force the FEMLC to verify that a zero byte
message is a valid zero byte length message and not a result of provider
throttling. Disable this option to improve speed, however note that zero
byte messages will be accepted as valid.
o Max data downloaded in a 24hr period (in gigabytes, ex 2)
 Many providers restrict the total amount of data that can be downloaded
in a 24hr period. For instance Google limits 5 the total to 2.5 Gig/24hrs.
By setting a limit here you enforce a soft throttle to limit the chances of
account lockout. By setting this value to zero you enforce no limits and
allow the data to be downloaded at the maximum possible speed.



Step 1
o To use the F-Response Consultant Edition, insert a valid F-Response FOB key
into a USB port of the computer on which you will be running the F-Response
License Manager Service, and then execute the F-Response License Manager
Service on that computer.
Step 2
o If you are using the “Autoconfigure” feature unique to the Consultant Edition,
jump to Step 7.
o If you are not using the “Autoconfigure” feature, make the F-Response CE Target
code available to the machine to be analyzed (via USB, network share, CD, etc.,)
and execute the F-Response CE Target code. The following consultant validation
box will appear.
F-Response Consultant Edition Validation User Interface (See Appendix A for field information detail)

Select an IP Address from the “Host IP Address” drop-down arrow to bind the FResponse Target code to a local IP address currently in use by the computer. In
this case we have chosen 192.168.1.218.
Alternatively you can select “All IP Addresses” to bind to all available IP
addresses.

Step 4
o Select the TCP Port. In this instance we chose to keep the default ‘3260’.
o [OPTIONAL] Select the Flexdisk™ Port. In this instance we chose to keep the
default “3261”.

Step 5
o Enter in a username and password value. These values will be used later to
authenticate the network connection to this computer.

Step 6
o Press the “Start” button to start listening for incoming connections.
o When the service is started one temporary file is created if the Physical Memory
option has been enabled. This file “Mnemosyne.sys” is the physical memory
driver necessary for providing access to physical memory.
o
At this time, the F-Response Consultant Edition client has been successfully
validated, and the F-Response Consultant Connector Active Clients Tab shows
the remote client’s IP address, Machine name, and Platform as shown below.

This completes F-Response preparation for this session. Remember – you will need the four
entries selected in the User Interface from Step 2 above in order to establish the
connection to access the computer’s drives over the network. Refer to the section on
using the F-Response Consultant Connector to complete the connection(s) and access the local
machine’s physical drives from remote.
Steps 7 through 10, below, are applicable only if you are using the “Autoconfigure”
feature unique to the Consultant Edition. The “Autoconfigure” feature unique to the FResponse Consultant Edition allows you to create a configuration file prior to running F-Response
target code on any number of machines to be analyzed. This can be a valuable time saving
feature if numerous machines are to be investigated, or if an assistant is going to be starting the
tool on a remote machine for the benefit of the examiner. E.g., The examiner can prepare an
Autoconfiguration CD-ROM. When analysis is to be conducted, the CD is simply placed in the
machine to be analyzed and F-Response is run and started from the CD. No further setup is
required.

Step 7
o Execute the F-Response CE Target code on a suitable machine in order to create
the portable configuration files to be used later on the machine(s) to be
analyzed. The following consultant validation box will appear.

or more characters), and password value (a minimum of 12 characters). These
values will be used later to authenticate the iSCSI/Flexdisk™ network connection
to this computer.

Step 8
o Press the “Save” button to create the automatic Configuration files that will be
used on any number of machines to be analyzed.
o Three files are created; fresponse.ini, flexdmgr.dll (if Flexdisk™ is enabled), and
Mnemosyne.sys (if Physical Memory is Enabled).
o At this time, the F-Response Consultant Edition Automatic Configuration is
complete.
o The examiner can prepare an Autoconfiguration CD-ROM, thumb drive, or other
delivery mechanism using the three files shown above; i.e. 1) f-response-ce.exe,
2) fresponse.ini, 3) Mnemosyne.sys (if Physical Memory is enabled), 4)
flexdmgr.dll (if Flexdisk™ is enabled).

What is a F-Response Flexdisk™?
The F-Response Flexdisk® (Patented) is a web based disk access and representation tool. The
Flexdisk™ uses standard web technologies (HTTPS/REST7) to provide direct access to the remote
target machines Logical and Physical targets in both raw and logical format. The Flexdisk™ can
be accessed and used from any modern web browser and also exposes a feature rich and
extensible application programming interface (API) accessible from any system capable of
making and interpreting web queries and JSON 8.
How do I access and use a F-Response Flexdisk™?
Using the F-Response Flexdisk™ is as easy as working with a web browser. The Flexdisk™ web
viewer interface contains multiple icons as well as a clearly defined legend to cover their usage
and meaning. A sample of that legend appears below:
In addition to using the provided web viewer, the F-Response Flexdisk™ provides a rich and
capable web services API that can be used to build mobile and web based applications that
leverage F-Response Flexdisk™ provided content. More information of using the Flexdisk™ API is
available in the Flexdisk™ API document available on the Downloads page of the F-Response
Website.

8. Q) Can I deploy F-Response to Linux or Other Operating Systems (OS’s)?
9. Q) When I attempt to deploy F-Response using the FEMC I cannot, even though I have valid
credentials?
10. Q) I established an F-Response connection, tried to view the remote “Documents and
Settings” folder and received a message that I don’t have permission to view that folder.
Why don’t I have access?
11. Q) What port does the F-Response EMC management console use to deploy and manage the
F-Response Service?
12. Q) Where does the F-Response EMC management console “install” or place the F-Response
Enterprise executable and configuration file?
13. Q) What port does the F-Response EMC management console use to deploy and manage the
F-Response Service?
1. Q) Can multiple initiators connect to a single F-Response target machine?
A) While the F-Response target code is running, any iSCSI initiator with access to the
listening port can connect to the machine; provided, of course, that the proper
authentication credentials are provided.
2. Q) Do I change any data on the target computer by using F-Response?
A) Once the F-Response Target code is executed and the network connection is
established, the practitioner conducting the analysis cannot edit or alter data on the
machine under inspection via the F-Response connection. Executing or starting the FResponse service does, of course, effect some change to the target computer, but the
changes are about as minimal as they can be for analysis that is being conducted on a
live machine.
3. Q) I am connected via F-Response. I navigated to a file on the remote computer, hit
delete, and it appears to be gone. Did I really delete the file?
A) No, you didn’t delete the file. You cannot delete files, alter Meta data, or effect any
other changes on the machine under inspection using F-Response. What you did do was
fool your analysis machine into “believing” that the file is deleted and thus your analysis
machine is no longer presenting the file to you as available.
4. Q) I have a personal firewall running on my computers. Do I need to change firewall
settings to use F-Response?
A) Possibly, F-Response does create temporary exceptions in the Windows Firewall
during execution. Furthermore these exceptions are removed when the application exits.
However, if you are using a firewall other than the Microsoft Windows Firewall, you may
need to set an exception. F-Response machines must be able to send and receive on port

3260 (this default is changeable) and if using the Enterprise or Consultant Edition, also
port 5681 (this default is changeable). We recommend disabling the firewall for the
duration of the session during ad hoc usage (e.g. temporary consultant use at a third
party site), and tuning the firewall configurations to allow F-Response connectivity for
planned enterprise deployment.
5. Q) I have a remote user that accidentally deleted a file. Can I use F-Response to
recover deleted files?
A) F-Response will enable you to use your recovery tool of choice to recover the file(s) to
a location other than the target machine. You cannot restore the file directly to the
target machine via F-Response because you do not have write capability on that
machine, but you can recover the file and make it available to the user via email,
network share, etc.
6. Q) Is the F-Response iSCSI connection encrypted?
A) By default, no. However AES 256 bit Encryption is available in F-Response Enterprise
edition. Alternatively, there are native methods to accomplish this, if needed. E.g. using
Microsoft IPSec policy manager you can create a configuration to enforce an IPSec policy
in your enterprise governing ports 3260, or whatever port you have elected to use with
F-Response. This could be used to force F-Response to be used over an IPSec tunnel,
and thus allow you to have the F-Response service start automatically with each boot. If
F-Response is being used over the Internet and corporate policy dictates encryption over
public networks, then the existing corporate VPN capability should satisfy the encryption
policy.
7. Q) Does F-Response work as an agent?
A) No. It does not collect or store any data on the machine under inspection. It does
not report to a management server. It does not have an inherent analysis or reporting
capability.
8. Q) Can I deploy F-Response to Linux or Other Operating Systems (OS’s)?
A) Yes, we have support for 7+ Non Windows Operating systems. See the platforms
supported section of this document for further details.
9. Q) When I attempt to deploy F-Response using the FEMC I cannot, even though I have
valid credentials?
A) Your target machine is most likely a Windows XP machine not running in “Classic”
mode for credential authentication. This is typically the case when attempting to connect
to XP machines not part of a Windows Domain. To switch the target machine to Classic
you must open the Local Security Policy Administration Tool under Control Panel,
Administrative Tools. You will then select Local Policies->Security Options and change
the value of “Network Access: Sharing and Security Model for Local Accounts” to “Classic
– Local Users authenticate as themselves”. This is only necessary in when using the
FEMC to deploy F-Response to XP or greater computers not part of a Windows Domain.

If the target machine is a Windows 7, Vista, or newer Windows OS and not joined to a
Domain (ie. Workgroup Member) then a key will need to be added to the registry of the
target machine. You can manually create and add this key to the registry by following
these steps:
To create your registry key, copy the following information into Notepad:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
]
“LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy”=dword:00000001
Save this file as LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy.reg, and then copy it to your target
machine. Double click this file on the target machine to populate the registry with this
key.
To remove follow the same steps as above this time with the following information:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
]
“LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy”=dword:00000000
10. Q) I established an F-Response connection, tried to view the remote “Documents and
Settings” folder and received a message that I don’t have permission to view that folder.
Why don’t I have access?
A) You have the access with the right tools. You probably used Windows Explorer or an
equivalent tool that is subject to the file permission settings for those folders. If you use
a forensics tool that can take advantage of your raw drive access, then you won’t have
this issue.
11. Q) What port does the F-Response EMC management console use to deploy and manage
the F-Response Service?
A) The F-Response EMC uses Microsoft File and Printer Sharing services for remote
administration and deployment, TCP Port 445.
12. Q) Where does the F-Response EMC management console “install” or place the FResponse Enterprise executable and configuration file?
A) The F-Response EMC places the executable and configuration file in the
C:\Windows|WINNT\System32|SysWow64 folder depending on Windows version.
13. Q) What port does the F-Response EMC management console use to deploy and manage
the F-Response Service?
A) The F-Response EMC uses Microsoft File and Printer Sharing services for remote
administration and deployment, TCP Port 445.

Linux License Manager and Accelerator
F-Response Consultant and above now includes an F-Response License Manager and Accelerator
for 32 and 64 bit Linux platforms.
The License Manager and Accelerator, along with a sample init script for starting the License
Manager automatically is included in the installation folder in the directory “Linux Tools”.
f-response-accel-lin (F-Response Accelerator for Linux, 32bit only)
The F-Response Accelerator for Linux essentially uses the Linux iSCSI Initiator to assist with
connecting to F-Response Targets.
f-response-lm-lin(lin64) (F-Response License Manager for Linux, 32 and 64 bit)
The F-Response License Manager for Linux provides F-Response License Manager services from
the Linux platform (32 and 64 bit). It currently does NOT provide the encryption services that are
available from the Windows version of the License Manager, if that is a requirement in your
environment you will have to continue to use the Windows License Manager. Use the –d option
plus a “&” to run the License Manager Service. Running the command without any options will
return a list of the active clients.
fresponselm (Init Script Sample)
In addition to the above binaries, you will also find a sample init (initialization script) that could
be used to configure the License Manager to run at boot. Please refer to the specific Linux server
and distribution for more details on setting up init scripts, etc.

Appendix A – Overview of the F-Response Enterprise
Edition Windows Command Line Interface
This appendix provides details regarding the command line options for installing, uninstalling, and
configuring F-Response Enterprise on each target machine. The help text is shown in the
following screen capture:
F-Response Enterprise Edition command line interface
F-Response Enterprise edition is a GUI-less Windows Service version of the F-Response Target
Code. It was designed for ease of administration and distribution to remote targets. The screen
capture above provides the f-response-ent.exe help page, including several examples.
The following help text details the command line options for installing, uninstalling, and
configuring F-Response Enterprise on each target machine.
Installing & Uninstalling F-Response Enterprise:
 -c {Create}, -d {Delete}
o These options are mutually exclusive. They either install (-c) or uninstall (-d) the
service on the local target computer with the default service name “F-Response
Enterprise Service”. Note: You can change the name of the F-Response
Enterprise executable file to anything you like prior to installation (e.g. you may
rename “f-response-ent.exe” to “xyz_tester.exe”). You may also place the FResponse Enterprise executable file anywhere you like prior to installation (e.g.
\WINDOWS\system32).
Revision 5.0.3

5/29/2014
All Versions
Users Manual
5.0.3

-a (“user defined service name”), -r (“user defined service name”)
o These options are mutually exclusive. They either install (-a) or uninstall (-r) the
service on the local computer with a user defined service name. Note: You can
change the name of the F-Response Enterprise executable file to anything you
like prior to installation (e.g. you may rename “f-response-ent.exe” to
“xyz_tester.exe”). You may also place the F-Response Enterprise executable file
anywhere you like prior to installation (e.g. \WINDOWS\system32).
Configuring F-Response Enterprise:
 -s (Server IP), -o (Server Port)
o Since the Enterprise Edition of F-Response allows the F-Response FOB to be
physically remote from the computer to be analyzed, the Enterprise Edition
software must be configured with parameters identifying the network address
(Server IP) and port number (Server Port) of the computer to which the FResponse FOB is connected, and which is running the NetUniKey Server (often
the IP Address of an Enterprise Investigations Server).
o Completing a successful configuration creates a “NetUniKey.ini” file. For
successful execution of F-Response Enterprise, both the F-Response Enterprise
executable (“f-response-ent.exe” by default) and the “NetUniKey.ini” file must be
located in the same folder on the target computer.

-u (username), -p (password), -i (iSCSI Port), -f (Flexdisk™ Port)
o These options set the username, password, and iSCSI port that will be used for
remote connectivity by the iSCSI initiator. If the Flexdisk™ port is not specified it
will not be enabled.
F-Response Enterprise Edition Service Management Console interface
The F-Response Enterprise service is controlled via the Microsoft Management Console for
Services. By default the service is installed in the Manual position, such that it may be started
during an investigation and stopped when no longer needed. Once installed and configured, the
service need only be “started” each time it is to be used. The default service name “F-Response
Enterprise Service” can be replaced with a user defined service name during installation with the
“-a” option.

Appendix E – Understanding Unix Credentials
F-Response uses Unix Credentials and the Secure Shell service (SSH/SFTP) to access remote
non-Windows based machines. In order to utilize this service you’ll want to familiarize yourself
with Unix credentials.
User accounts and Credentials
For our purposes there are two different user accounts we can use to gain sufficient access to a
target non-Windows based machine, a general user account, and “root”.
In the Unix world “root” is the superuser or Administrator. As you can imagine using the
superuser or “root” account can be dangerous therefore most system administrators allow
general user account to perform actions requiring “root” level permission through one of two
options, su and sudo.
Assume User (su)
Using “su” a general user account can assume superuser privileges for a limited period of time.
The user will require the “root” or superuser password to gain these privileges, and once the “su”
action is complete the user will effectively be able to perform any and all actions as “root” or
superuser. It is sometimes easiest to think of this process much like Windows User Account
Controls (Windows UAC) in Microsoft Windows Vista and 7, you are asked to use “su” as an extra
step in an effort to make you cognitive of the powerful capabilities your account now possesses.
Superuser do (sudo)
Using “sudo” a general user is allowed to execute a specific command with superuser privileges.
In this instance the user need only enter their user password when prompted. Again, much like
the Windows UAC process, you are asked to use sudo as an extra step in an effort to make you
aware of the actions your account is temporarily capable of.
SSH Keys
Many system administrators prefer to allow remote connections only when they are attempted
using a special cryptographic key file, the SSH Key File. F-Response allows you to specify a key
file for access, however unless your account is the “root” or superuser account you will need to
provide the appropriate password for “su” or “sudo”. F-Response supports both OpenSSH and
Putty SSH Key files.
F-Response allows you to access the remote machine with any combination of user account and
credential, however let’s go through a few common scenarios below:

Obligations. Each Party shall maintain in confidence all Confidential Information of the disclosing Party that is
delivered to the receiving Party and will not use such Confidential Information except as expressly permitted herein. Each

monetary damages will be inadequate to compensate the non-breaching Party. In the event of a breach or threatened
breach of any of the provisions of this section, the non-breaching Party, in addition to and not in limitation of any other
rights, remedies or damages available to it at law or in equity, shall be entitled to a temporary restraining order, preliminary
injunction and/or permanent injunction in order to prevent or to restrain any such breach by the other Party.
