Operate, Charge, and Extract Information on Devices while Shielded from RF Signals
The Mission Darkness™ BlockBox Touch Multiport is the most versatile, light-weight analysis enclosure in the BlockBox forensics series. The product consists of a spacious faraday chamber with a built-in multifunctional shielded filter including two USB ports, one RJ45 ethernet port, and one AC power port. Additional components include a double layer conductive glove, large transparent window, branding/evidence card pocket, unique serial number, and LED light strip. The combined features allows an operator to connect multiple electronic devices inside the faraday chamber to a local network internally, as well as connect to a charging source, computer, or data extraction tool externally. The primarily use is for forensic investigators to conduct triage and analysis on seized devices (such as cell phones and tablets), while remaining shielded from RF signals. Being able to keep devices charged indefinitely prevents lockout mode and reduces the amount of time needed to break a passcode, enabling the maximum amount of data extraction and unlocking with tools like GrayKey, Cellebrite, XRY, BlackBag, Oxygen, etc. Alternative uses relate to mobile device testing, since the product can be used to create an isolated and controlled environment.
The interior faraday chamber includes padded side walls and two layers of high-shielding TitanRF™ Faraday Fabric on all sides with dual paired seam construction. The faraday chamber will block all wireless signals including WiFi (2.4 & 5GHz), Bluetooth, cell signals including 5G networks, GPS, RFID, NFC, and radio signals with 90dB average attenuation from low MHz to 40GHz spectrum. The exterior is built with water-resistant ballistic nylon outer material to ensure that devices and faraday fabric stay protected.
The faraday chamber uses a NeoLok™ closure system, allowing an operator to effortlessly close the faraday chamber by way of a double roll and strong neodymium magnetic seal holding the roll in place. A quick-snap strap over the roll provides extra security, which is especially useful if transporting shielded devices inside to various locations, such as from the collection site to the lab. The magnetic closure increases the product's overall longevity, compared to faraday enclosures built with Velcro which can damage gloves and wear out with frequent use due to "hard pulling" on the closure area.
The BlockBox Touch Multiport is easy to use, extremely high-shielding, and large enough to accommodate a variety of midsize electronics and accompanying accessories. The kit includes corresponding cables (two USB A/M to A/M cables, one AC power cable, and one right angle AC adapter), plus a removable signal-dampening foam block, which provides a platform to take photos of devices, as well as additional shielding in high-signal strength environments.

Easily Add Department/Agency Info
Mission Darkness faraday bags and BlockBox Touch analysis enclosures have a transparent pocket on the back to place a business card or more permanent sticker. There is no need to silkscreen your department information on the bag. If you would like a permanent way to custom brand items, we can add woven labels during production. Please contact us to discuss options.

USB Filter & Cable Details
The shielded filter installed through the bag enables dual sided device connectivity, allowing a device to be charged or have data extracted while remaining isolated from RF signals. Being able to keep the device live prevents lockout mode and reduces the amount of time needed to break a passcode, enabling the maximum amount of data extraction and unlocking with forensics tools.
Purchase the USB cable set add-on if needed to connect to devices internally (compatible with lightning, micro USB, and USB-C devices). *If you are using your own cables (not ones we provided), be aware that all cables used both within and outside of the analysis enclosure need to be SHIELDED.
The product requires shielded cables both within and outside of the enclosure to effectively block RF signals. Click the link below for product care and usage instructions (a hard copy is included with the kit).

Use With Forensics Tools, Like Cellebrite and GrayKey
In additional to offering an RF isolated environment, the various filter ports allow a user to operate, charge, interrogate, and conduct triage on mobile devices. The ability to charge indefinitely using the power outlet prevents lockout mode and reduces the amount of time needed to break a passcode, while the RJ45 ethernet port allows shielded internet use in an isolated environment. These unique features enables the maximum amount of data extraction and unlocking with tools like GrayKey, Cellebrite, XRY, BlackBag, Oxygen, etc. The details below provide a basic overview of how to use the BlockBox Touch Multiport with a few forensics tools.
If Using With GrayKey:
- Make sure the outer filter cables are connected. Place the GrayKey unit inside of the powered BlockBox Touch Multiport faraday chamber and connect it to the inner RJ45 ethernet port, as well as the power outlet. Connect the device(s) to GrayKey and use the tool as directed.
If Using With Cellebrite or Related Extraction Tool:
- Place the device inside of the powered BlockBox Touch Multiport faraday chamber and connect it to the USB filter internally using a compatible cable tip. Connect an extraction tool directly to the outer USB filter on the opposite side, then use as directed.
Each connection on the BlockBox Touch Multiport is an independent pass-though, meaning, each individual connection will only pass power and/or data to its opposite connection on the other side. Below are a few connection examples showing the correct and incorrect ways to connect devices through the BlockBox Touch Multiport.
*Helpful tip: use the right angle AC adapter to connect a charging bank or power strip (not included) internally to charge multiple devices.
These accessories are often added to BlockBox Touch Multiport kit because they enable short term charging capabilities, which may be required during transportation or until the analysis enclosure can be connected to a long term power source. Simply add the accessory you want to your cart.

This is the second forensic enclosure I have purchased from MOS Equipment. After testing, I can confidently say that all signals are 100% blocked, even when next to the router. This one is being used with GrayKey inside, as it works through the rj45 connector. These are by far the best forensic shielding enclosures in the market. I would recommend them to any PD.
