SubRosaSoft Ships MacLockPick for Law Enforcement

Live forensics tool for extracting passwords, Internet history, Wi-Fi connections and system settings from a suspect's Mac OS X computer. Inc. today announced the immediate availability of MacLockPick, a new live forensics tool for extracting passwords, Internet history, and system settings from a suspect's Mac OS X computer.

According to the company, MacLockPick is an indispensable tool for law enforcement professionals to perform live forensics on Mac OS X systems. The solution is based on a USB Flash drive that can be inserted into a suspect's Mac OS X computer that is running (or sleeping). Once the MacLockPick software is run it will extract data from the Apple Keychain and system settings to provide the examiner fast access to the suspect's critical information with as little interaction or trace as possible.

A database of the suspect's information is compiled on the Flash Drive to allow for easy transportation away from the suspect's system. This database can be read by the included log readers on Microsoft Windows, Linux, or Apple Mac OS X computers back at base.
