ElcomSoft Updates iOS Forensic Toolkit with iOS 5 Support and Faster Acquisition Times

MOSCOW, Nov. 1, 2011 /CNW/ - ElcomSoft Co. Ltd. updates iOS Forensic Toolkit, adding iOS5 and doubling the acquisition speed. With iOS5 support, iOS Forensic Toolkit can recover device passcodes and perform physical acquisition of Apple devices running iOS 3.x, 4.x and 5. By more than doubling the acquisition speed of the earlier versions, the updated Elcomsoft iOS Forensic Toolkit can acquire a 16-Gb iPhone 4 in about 20 minutes, or a 32-Gb version in 40 minutes.

Providing near-instant forensic access to encrypted information stored in the latest iPhone and iPad devices, Elcomsoft iOS Forensic Toolkit enables access to protected file system dumps extracted from supported Apple devices even if the original device passcode is unknown.

Forensic Analysis of iOS 5 Devices

While the whole security system received a minor facelift in iOS5, Apple made significant changes regarding keychain protection, replacing the encryption algorithm entirely. In addition, Apple made Escrow Keybag useless to forensic specialists by protecting escrow keys with device passcode. Apparently, the protection of iOS5 devices relies more heavily on device passcode than in earlier versions.

Keychains contain information highly valuable to forensic investigators. This includes stored login credentials to Web sites, Wi-Fi, email and application passwords, and more. With new encryption employed to protect keychain items, Elcomsoft iOS Forensic Toolkit becomes the first commercially available product offering full support for recovering iOS5 keychains.

Elcomsoft iOS Forensic Toolkit can recover the original passcode by performing a brute-force attack. With plain-text passcode available, Elcomsoft iOS Forensic Toolkit can decrypt all items stored in the keychain.

Availability and Distribution

Elcomsoft iOS Forensic Toolkit is available immediately. Access to the new tool is generally provided to qualified government and law enforcement agencies. Pricing available by request.
