SubRosaSoft.com (http://www.macforensicslab.com) has updated MacLockPick, a digital forensic field tool, to version 3.0. The new version offers improvements in iOS support, the addition of file and meta tag filters, upgraded application support, and more.
Designed for law enforcement professionals, it’s based on a USB Flash drive that can be inserted into a suspect’s Mac OS X computer that is running (or sleeping). Once the MacLockPick software is run it will extract data from the Apple Keychain and system settings to provide the examiner fast access to the suspect’s critical information with as little interaction or trace as possible.
A database of the suspect’s information is compiled on the Flash drive to allow for transportation away from the suspect’s system. This database can be read by the included log readers on Mac OS X, Windows or Linux computers.
MacLockPick isn’t for sale to the general public. Purchasers will be required to provide proof that they are a licensed law enforcement professional. Users are required to ensure that the use of this technology is legal on federal, state, and local level. Licensed investigators and law enforcement professionals can purchase MacLockPick for US$499.95 for an 8GB version and $549 for a 16GB version. Upgrade pricing for version 3.0 starts at $349.
