Are you ready for a big one? Anticipating what your evidence collection needs will be while you are on-scene includes trying to ascertain how many electronic devices you will encounter. ADF makes it easy for you to be prepared.
Preparing multiple digital evidence collection keys to include in your investigator "go-bag" will ensure you're ready for investigations of all sizes.
So what do we have in that bag? When it comes to on-scene investigations with any of the ADF suite of tools, the need for hardware is minimal depending on what you are going to encounter. You'll need:
- An ADF license key to authenticate your device scans
- A Collection Key (CKY) to boot to a powered off computer or a live Windows computer
- Smartphone Cables (if you are working from the Digital Evidence Investigator Pro Field Tablet or Mobile Device Investigator Field Tablet).
ADF has different licensing methods to allow for either one licensed Collection Key or multiple Collection Keys with one license, giving you maximum flexibility. With either method when you prepare multiple Collection Keys in advance you'll be prepared.
Example: A task force was executing a warrant upon a business and expected to encounter 75 computers and wanted to determine which had devices needed to be seized, imaged, or excluded. The task force prepared 75 Collection keys and conducted RAM Capture, Live Scans, Boot scans, and imaging with one ADF authentication license key. They had anticipated several days of work but this was reduced to a single day.
So how do we prepare that many Collection Keys with ADF applications? You are only limited by the number of USB ports you have available to you. Watch as we show you the method to prepare multiple Collection Keys to get you ready for your next field investigation.
