Items of interest to Forensics people

  • It comes in two flavors, boot password protect and Windows Pass-through. Boot protect means you're going to need the key. Windows pass-through means you can attack the OS to get to the underlying data (on a working copy, of course). Once you have an OS key, you can use a fresh copy to assemble evidence.

  • Checkpoint(sec) does supply boot drivers that allow you to mount a pass-through volume inside a BartPE environment. Very useful. Drivers are available from Checkpoint.
