Cellebrite Launches Actionable Forensics Data In The Field

Friday, June 10, 2016 (06:17:43)
Police work is mostly about solving cases, and this is not a trivial task. Gathering clues and hints is important to achieve the desired outcome. As everyone today has a mobile device with them wherever they go, and these devices are capturing a lot of information (calls, chats, locations, pictures, contacts), leveraging this data for investigation is just common logic.

Researchers conducted on investigation process proved that evidence or clues that are gathered within the first 48 hours are imperative to solving cases, and the statistics shows that when there is no real direction the chances to ever solve the case decreases by 50 percent.

What Has Changed in 2016 in the Way SSD Drives Self-Destruct Evidence: Demystifying eMMC, M.2, NVMe, and PCI-E.

In the previous part of the article, we talked about eMMC storages and external SSDs. We also mentioned TRIM when talking about trimming behavior of eMMC. We will talk a bit more about TRIM this time and then move on to some real-life cases.

More about TRIM: Checking TRIM Support

There are several levels of TRIM support, all of which are worth checking.

- TRIM support by the SSD drive itself.
- Whether TRIM is enabled and active on a given system/configuration.
- Whether TRIM is correctly implemented by the SSD controller.
- Whether the SSD supports and implements DRAT and DZAT.
- Checking whether a particular SSD drive advertises TRIM support is as easy as reviewing its S.M.A.R.T. output, using the manufacturer’s bundled tool (e.g. SSD Toolbox, Samsung Magician and similar) or using a third-party tool such as CrystalDiskInfo.
