Export transferred files from SCP, SFTP, HTTP and RDP audit trail using the command line

The following procedure describes how to export the files that the user transferred in an SCP, SFTP, HTTP, or RDP session using the command line.

To export the files that the user transferred in an SCP, SFTP, HTTP, or RDP session using the command line

Start a command prompt and navigate to the installation directory of Safeguard Desktop Player. By default, it is C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Software\Safeguard\Safeguard Desktop Player\ on Microsoft Windows platforms, ~/SafeguardDesktopPlayer on Linux, and /Applications/Safeguard Desktop Player.app/Contents/Resources/ on MacOS.

  1. List the channels in the audit trail, and find the one you want to extract files from. Note down the ID number of this channel as it will be required later on (it is 3 in the following example).

    Windows: adp.exe --task channel-info --file <path/to/audit-trail.zat>

    Linux or MacOS: ./adp --task channel-info --file <path/to/audit-trail.zat>

    If the audit trail is encrypted, use the --key <keyfile.pem:passphrase> option. Repeat the option if the audit trail is encrypted with multiple keys. Include the colon (:) character even if the key is not password-protected. Example output:

    Channel information : ssh-session-exec-scp:3
  2. Export the files from the audit trail. Use the ID number of the channel from the previous step.

    Windows: adp --task indexer --channel 3 --file <path/to/audit-trail.zat> --export-files <folder/to/save/files/>

    Linux or MacOS: adp --task indexer --channel 3 --file <path/to/audit-trail.zat> --export-files <folder/to/save/files/>

    If the audit trail is encrypted, use the --key <keyfile.pem:passphrase> option. Repeat the option if the audit trail is encrypted with multiple keys. Include the colon (:) character even if the key is not password-protected.

  3. Check the output directory for the exported files.

  2. Export the channel(s) from the audit trail. Use the ID number(s) of the channel(s) from the previous step.

    Windows: adp.exe -f <path/to/audit-trail.zat> -c <channel id> -t indexer --export-pcap output.pcap

    Linux or MacOS: adp -f <path/to/audit-trail.zat> -c <channel id> -t indexer --export-pcap output.pcap

    If the audit trail is encrypted, use the --key <keyfile.pem:passphrase> option. Repeat the option if the audit trail is encrypted with multiple keys. Include the colon (:) character even if the key is not password-protected.
