MacLockPick adheres to commonly held forensic principals and does not negate the ability to transfer systems/storage media back to the lab for more detailed investigation after field triage has been concluded.
Comprehensive forensic applications such as MacForensicsLab focus on the analysis of static data. However, the need to capture live data has become paramount in an environment wrought with forensic pitfalls such as encryption, malicious running processes and networked storage pools. In cases such as child abductions, pedophiles, missing or exploited persons, time is critical. In these types of cases, investigators dealing with the suspect or crime scene need leads quickly, sometimes this is quite literally difference between life and death for the victim.
MacLockPick II™ is an indispensable tool designed for first responders and law enforcement professionals performing live forensic triage on most computer systems. The solution is based on a USB Flash drive that is inserted into a suspect’s computer that is running (or sleeping). Once the MacLockPick II software is run it will extract the requisite data providing the examiner fast access to the suspect’s critical information, that may otherwise be rendered unreadable by modern encryption programs, hardware malfunctions, or simply powering the system down. MacLockPick II is the only cross platform solution on the market and therefore the best chance of successfully capturing data critical to any investigation involving running computers. In addition, MacLockPick II is minimally evasive, providing results that can hold up in a court of law.
