Bruteforcing Linux Full Disk Encryption (LUKS) With Hashcat

Thursday, February 22, 2018 (11:24:03)
by Patrick Bell

This walk-through will show you how to Bruteforce LUK volumes using hashcat, how you can mount a LUK partition, and how we can image it once it’s decrypted.

Scenario: You’ve got a Macbook in. MacOS has been removed and Debian 9.0 has been installed. The suspect is using LUKS (Linux Unified Key Setup) full disk encryption to encrypt the disk. Password is unknown and we need a forensically sound method to access the data. This is how I’d do it.

Interview With Nick Sharples, Senior Solutions Consultant, Nuix

Monday, February 19, 2018 (13:24:50)
Nick, can you please tell us a bit about yourself and your background; what does a day in your life look like?

A ‘regular day in the office’ starts early, the alarm goes in my house at 5am so I can get to the gym for an hour before jumping on the train to London. I am relatively new at Nuix and I am still learning the different capabilities of each product, so I tend to use the time on the train to pick up a product I’ve not used before to see what it can do or how to install and configure it. I also use the time to catch up with emails from my colleagues in the Solutions Consultants (SC) Team, or brush up on my programming skills.
