MOSCOW, July 17, 2013 /CNW/ - ElcomSoft Co. Ltd. updates iOS Forensic
Toolkit, enabling physical acquisition of certain iOS 5 and iOS 6
devices including iPhone 4S and 5, iPad 2 through 4, iPod Touch 4-5.
Support for iPhone 4S and 5 has been highly demanded by forensic
customers. By enabling physical acquisition of last-generation Apple
devices, iOS Forensic Toolkit makes forensic analysis of these iOS devices once again a feasible
The acquisition of jailbroken devices gets automated, eliminating
previously required manual steps. The acquisition of legacy devices is
now completely automated.
iOS Forensic Toolkit continues providing unrestricted support for legacy iOS devices such as
iPhone 4 and earlier. However, physical acquisition support for
last-generation iOS devices is subject to technical limitations. iPhone
4S and 5, iPad 2-4 can only be acquired if jailbroken or unlocked so
that jailbreak code could be installed. Non-jailbroken devices locked
with an unknown passcode cannot be acquired.
Passcode recovery speed on jailbroken iPhone 5 devices is increased to
15.5 passcodes per second, allowing iOS Forensic Toolkit to break
typical 4-digit passcodes in about 10 minutes.
Physical acquisition preferable for accessing data in iOS devices,
returning more information than any other method such as logical
acquisition or backup analysis. Physical acquisition operates within a
definite timeframe, delivering the entire content of a 32-GB device in
under 40 minutes. All protected information including SMS, emails, call
history, contacts, organizer data, Web browsing history, voicemail and
email accounts and settings, stored logins and passwords, geolocation
history etc. can be recovered even if the original passcode is unknown.
Windows and MacOS X versions are available. Physical acquisition support
varies depending on lock state, jailbreak state and the version of iOS
iPhone 4 and older; iPad 1; iPod Touch 1-3: no restrictions, all
versions of iOS.
iPhone 4S, 5; iPad 2-4; iPod Touch 4-5: if already jailbroken, or
jailbreak can be installed (iOS up to 6.1.2, device unlocked, passcode
not set or known).
