Review: WriteProtect-Portable From Logicube

Friday, November 23, 2018 (10:44:45)

by Scar de Courcier

Logicube provide a line of write blockers for forensic analysis: Portable, Desktop and Bay. The idea behind the write blocker line is to combine multiple interfaces into one device; in the case of the WriteProtect-Portable, it’s a very small device that nonetheless manages to pack quite a punch!

The WriteProtect-Portable includes SATA, USB and PCIE natively, and for investigators who are still encountering IDE drives there is an optional IDE to SATA adapter available as an add-on. The WriteProtect-Desktop allows you to connect multiple devices simultaneously, but with the WriteProtect-Portable you can only connect one at a time. There is a web browser function on the WriteProtect-Portable which is rarely required but can come in handy sometimes; an ethernet port on the side of the device allows for easy internet connection. The device also features a fast SuperSpeed USB 3.0 host connection.

My current course concentrates on several different aspects of Information Security. Both the practical application of network and systems security as well as security at a strategic level. It is accredited by the Tiger Scheme, and is a mix of lectures, self-study and practical.

How To: Use The File Browser Feature In Logicube’s Forensic Falcon NEO

Monday, November 19, 2018 (09:16:54)

Welcome to Logicube’s tutorial on the Forensic Falcon NEO. In this session, we’ll show you how to use the file browser feature. The file browser feature of the Falcon NEO provides logical access to source and destination drives connected to the Falcon NEO. To open the file browser, click on the left-hand menu and click on the File Browser icon. The browser can be used directly on the Falcon NEO’s display, which can be useful when you’re out in the field and there are no computers available; or the browser can be used from the web interface, as we’ve done here. The file browser can open several types of image files, including jpeg, png, gif, and can also open text, HTML and PDF type files. Using the web interface on a PC also gives you the ability to download files to that same PC and then preview any files that cannot be previewed on Falcon NEO. Read More
