Live Mac Forensics: Round Out Your On-Scene Triage

When conducting on-scene triage for any type of crime it is essential to be prepared for any devices you may encounter. It is important to pre-plan and try to figure out what type and how many devices you may encounter, but no matter how many times you read the report or conduct pretextual calls your estimate is going to be off. You need to be prepared and have the ability to adapt and overcome.

With Digital Evidence Investigator PRO in your toolbox, you have the ability to conduct Mac forensics. DEI PRO allows you to triage just about any device you encounter, quickly, and with confidence, you have documented what you need. 

  • Boot to or live scan Windows machines
  • Preview, screenshot, or logically acquire mobile devices, and now 
  • Boot and live scans of Mac computers, Live Mac forensics, on scene.

Mac computers are the one device that has slowly become more popular and are being encountered in more and more scenes. Not only do you want to be able to locate the items you are looking for, but you also want it to be user-friendly and easy to use. Investigations do not need to be any harder than they already are.

In this video, you will see a MacBook Air (M12020) connected via ethernet cable, directly to the Windows workstation running DEI PRO. Using a customized Search Profile configured to detect images, videos, and child exploitation keywords in the Users' profiles, the scan detects 3100 images in under 2 minutes. You can also now logically image the Mac to an aff4 image to be scanned later with a more comprehensive profile.

Digital Evidence Investigator will get you into more devices faster than any other tool, including Surface pros, and many tools where secure boot may cause you an issue.
