The Importance of a Secure RF Shielded Enclosure

When a mobile device is seized, it is vital to maintain the integrity of its data and prevent any potential tampering or remote wiping attempts. By keeping the device isolated from wireless signals in a secure RF shielded enclosure, such as a trusted faraday bag, you significantly reduce the risk of chain of custody corruption and unauthorized access. This containment ensures that the evidence remains untainted until it reaches the hands of the digital forensics investigator.

The Power of a Live Device for Data Recovery

Nowadays digital forensics tools rely on a live device to extract the most data and recover passwords effectively. These tools employ various sophisticated methods to bypass security measures and gain access to the device's data. Having the device powered on from the point of seizure, during transport, and throughout the examination allows investigators to utilize these tools to their full potential, maximizing the chances of successful data recovery.

The Role of a Rechargeable Battery

Transporting a live device necessitates a reliable power source that keeps the device operational for an extended period. While a rechargeable battery inside a faraday bag can offer a cost-effective and simple solution, it is limited by the battery's capacity. Therefore, a long-lasting continuous charging solution is crucial to ensure the device remains live and accessible throughout the investigative process. It's important to invest in a large-capacity battery with the ability to continuously charge the device once it reaches 100% power. This is an important feature for digital forensics use, ensuring that the device stays charged. Standard power banks stop outputting power when they detect that the device plugged into them is fully charged. The downside of using a rechargable battery as a power source, is that you are limited in the amount of time you have to get the device to the analysis stage. The battery only lasts for so long before runnig out of power, and that time may be even more limited if the battery is not introduced fully charged.

Rechargable portable batteries may be the most cost-effective solution for keeping devices live for short periods of time, where as faraday bags with shielded filters offer a more reliable long-term charging solution. A faraday bag with a shielded filter allows the user to connect to a long-term charging solution, such as a power outlet or battery. Batteries can be swapped our or recharged this way, since they are attached to the outside of the faraday bag, as opposed to being stored inside of the faraday bag. However, these types of shielding and charging solutions come with a higher price tag, since the shielded filter is an expensive component. Although preferred, it is less feasible to provide a large amount of field officers with these types of bags due to budget constraints. That is why a simpler faraday bag with battery kit is the most popular cost-effective solution for keeping devices live during transport. The products below are specialized faraday bags with shielded USB filters and cable kits, if long-term charging is required and if the budget permits.

The Advantages of Separate High-Quality Cable Tips

The reliability of your tools is only as good as the connections you use. To increase effectiveness and minimize the chance of cable failure, it is essential to use separate high-quality cable tips, as oppoosed to a multi-cable (such as a 3-in-1 tip). Most commonly used single cable tips that should be included in a kit are Apple lightning, USB micro, USB-C, and a USB extension cable to increase ease of use. High-quality cables maintain a strong and stable connection throughout frequent uses, preventing potential data loss or disruptions during examination. Additionally high-quality cables have a longer lifespan.
