Forensic Implications of iOS Lockdown (Pairing) Records

Monday, November 14, 2016 (12:06:24)
In recent versions of iOS, successful acquisition of a locked device is no longer a given. Multiple protection layers and Apple’s new policy on handling government requests make forensic experts look elsewhere when investigating Apple smartphones.

In this publication, we’ll discuss acquisition approach to an iOS device under these specific circumstances:

1. Runs iOS 8.x through 10.x
2. When seized, the device was powered on but locked with a passcode and/or Touch ID
3. Device was never powered off or rebooted since it was seized
4. Does not have a jailbreak installed and may not allow installing a jailbreak
5. Investigators have access to one or more computers to which the iOS device was synced (iTunes) or trusted (by confirming the “Trust this PC” pop-up on the device) in the past

The Growth of Digital Evidence Backlogs and Making Them a Thing of the Past

Friday, November 11, 2016 (15:48:10)
By Adam Belsher, CEO Magnet Forensics

This shouldn’t come as a surprise given the proliferation of smartphones, tablets, drives, computers, and other connected devices. Some estimates show that there will be 6.1 billion smartphones alone in the world by 2020.

Unfortunately, these devices not only make our lives more convenient, they have also helped to enable criminals. It’s easy to imagine that almost every criminal case could involve some form of digital evidence.
