Four Critical Success Factors In Mobile Forensics

Monday, September 16, 2019 (07:50:46)
by Mike Dickinson, Deputy Executive Officer at MSAB

The purpose of this paper is to encourage mobile forensic practitioners to consider a wider number of critical factors surrounding their choice and use of mobile forensic tools. Specifically, the quality of decoding, training of users and ultimately the preservation of digital as evidence in court proceedings.

There is a tendency in the world of mobile forensic tools to focus on one thing: data acquisition.

Most users tend to focus on purchasing a tool that gets them access to the data. Makes sense, right? Not much point in doing anything else, if you can’t get the data in the first place, and we would agree. But it shouldn’t stop there. There are four critical factors to consider.

How To Acquire Data From A Mac Using MacQuisition

Friday, September 13, 2019 (12:08:13)
Depending on the digital forensic imaging tool you have available, creating a forensic image of a Mac computer can be either an anxiety-creating situation, or as easy as “1-2-3-START”. There are several things you must identify ahead of attempting a full disk image of the system. Below are some things to consider:

1. Type of Mac computer: Identify the serial number / model number; identify if the Mac is installed with a T2 security chip. Are SecureBoot settings enabled to prevent booting from external media?
2. What file system (HFS+ vs APFS) is currently running on the source Mac?
3. Is FileVault2 enabled on the source Mac? Do you have the password or Recovery Key available?
4. Do you need a logical or physical acquisition of the Mac?
5. Has the owner of the Mac enabled a firmware password on the system?
6. Is the Mac installed with a fusion drive?
7. Do you need a RAM image?

Having the answers to the above questions is imperative.
