Decrypting FileVault 2 Volumes

Elcomsoft Phone Breaker gains the ability to extract FileVault 2 recovery keys from the user's iCloud account, and use these keys to decrypt encrypted disk images. Valid authentication credentials (Apple ID/password or iCloud authentication token) as well as volume identification information extracted from the FileVault-encrypted disk image are required in order to extract the key. Once the recovery key is successfully obtained, the user can perform full decryption for offline analysis.

Extracting iCloud Photo Library

Elcomsoft Phone Breaker downloads photos and videos stored in iCloud Photo Library. The tool can extract media files that have been deleted more than 30 days ago, which can result in significantly more evidence compared to simply pulling the "Recently Deleted" album.

New Keychain Viewer

The updated Keychain Explorer displays browser passwords, authentication tokens (including those to access iCloud backups and files), saved credit card data and Wi-Fi passwords synced from the iCloud keychain. The viewer can automatically discover the user's Apple ID password and/or authentication token by analyzing browser passwords, iTunes and App Store settings.

About Elcomsoft Phone Breaker

The tool can extract cached passwords and synced authentication credentials to a wide range of resources from local backups. Cloud extraction with or without a password makes it possible to decrypt FileVault 2 containers without lengthy attacks, pull communication histories and retrieve photos deleted by the user a long time ago.
