How To Boot Scan A Mac With APFS And FileVault 2

Thursday, October 17, 2019 (09:43:43)
Hi, I’m Rich Frawley and I’m the Digital Forensic Specialist with ADF Solutions. Today we are going to conduct a boot scan of a MacBook Air that has APFS and FileVault 2 enabled.

At this point you have decided on a search profile or profiles to use and and prepared your collection key.

When conducting a boot scan, Digital Evidence Investigator is forensically sound. This means that no changes are made to the target media.

Prior to conducting a boot scan, establish how many USB ports are available and determine if the four-port USB hub is required. Two ports are required in order to complete a scan: one for the collection key and one for the authentication key. Once the scan has started, the authentication key can be removed.

The Mueller Report Part 2 – What It Feels Like To Be Targeted By A Nation State

Tuesday, October 15, 2019 (15:09:36)
by Stephen Stewart, CTO, Nuix

Preface: This still isn’t about politics. It’s all about the data discussed in Part 1 of this blog series.


In Volume 1 Section III. Russian Hacking and Dumping Operations, the Mueller Report provides frightening detail about what it means to be targeted by a Nation State. The prevailing sentiment is that if you are targeted by a Nation State, it will eventually get in.

For those in the security industry, this is old news. What is interesting about the Mueller Report is that the details are included in a document that will be read by millions of ordinary people, not just security professionals.

“In total the GRU stole hundreds of thousands of documents from the compromised email accounts and networks.”
