Title: Modern Mobile and Computer Forensics with Belkasoft and the Latest Advances in iOS Forensics

Summary: iOS forensics has been a hot topic over the last few years. Apple is constantly strengthening its security measures on their devices such as iPhones, iPADs and others. This was designed to prevent hackers and by doing so law enforcement investigators access to its devices, Things like remote phone wiping, not allowing the passing of data through lightning cable, requests to enter a PIN after potentially suspicious actions (like changing a SIM card), 6-digit PIN by default etc, make digital investigations much more difficult. There are, however, some breakthrough advances in the field of Apple device forensics, such as checkm8 and checkra1n jailbreak and other new exploits. These advances gave investigators the forgotten possibility to acquire so called "full file system copy", which has far more data than a regular iTunes backup. Under some circumstances there is a possibility to acquire data even without a jailbreak!

New version of Belkasoft Evidence Center supports an important feature of checkm8-based acquisition. This feature can extract data from both unlocked and locked devices. Yuri Gubanov, CEO and founder of Belkasoft will speak about the latest advances in iOS forensics with Belkasoft, will demo the checkm8-based extractions.
