Atola TaskForce Gets Segmented Hashing, Target Encryption & Segmented E01 Images

Monday, March 30, 2020 (10:28:11)
In the last two months, Atola Technology has come out with three firmware updates for Atola Taskforce forensic imager!

Each of the releases contained a key feature: 2020.1 introduced target drive encryption, 2020.2 allowed imaging to a segmented E01 file and finally 2020.3 features segmented hashing.

“These features were among the most anticipated by our customers and help further enhance evidence acquisition, verification, and storage process,” says Atola’s CTO Vitaliy Mokosiy. “While target encryption allows for secure image preservation and transportation, segmented E01 files are easier to create and store, and segmented hashing ensures image verification even if the evidence drive is damaged or the image goes corrupt before it can be presented in court.”

Thursday, March 26, 2020 (14:09:23)
Welcome to Oxygen Forensic Detective’s Knowledge Nuggets. In this video we’re going to discuss decrypting WhatsApp messaging.

Let’s go over a few very important points that you need to consider before analyzing WhatsApp.

Number one: always place the device in airplane mode. This is important for many reasons, but the reason specific to WhatsApp is [that] during the extraction of WhatsApp, iCloud backup or Google Drive backup or the WhatsApp cloud, entering the phone verification code will disable the previous WhatsApp installation.
