MOSCOW, RUSSIA – March 12, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ – ElcomSoft Co. Ltd. updates Elcomsoft Phone Breaker (formerly Elcomsoft Phone Password Breaker) with full support for Apple iCloud Drive. The new release adds acquisition support for iCloud Drive, enabling investigators to extract all types of data stored in Apple iCloud as well as iCloud Drive by all Apple and third-party applications. In addition, the new release adds the ability to decrypt the keychain stored in iCloud backups provided that the correct ‘securityd’ key is supplied (extracted from the physical device). Finally, the latest release changes the Open File dialog, displaying backup’s properties in-place, before the backup file is actually opened.
With this release, Elcomsoft Phone Breaker finalizes acquisition support for Apple’s online infrastructure, delivering investigators the ability to perform the complete over-the-air acquisition of information stored in the cloud regardless of whether or not the subject has upgraded their account to use iCloud Drive.
“We strived to deliver this functionality right after the official release of iCloud Drive,” says Vladimir Katalov, ElcomSoft CEO. “Unfortunately, this required far more efforts than we initially anticipated. We wanted to thank our customers for their patience, and apologize for not updating our tool earlier. Today, we have finalized support for iCloud Drive, and can now offer our customers a reliable way for accessing information stored in both Apple iCloud and iCloud Drive accounts.”
While accessing user files uploaded to iCloud Drive via Finder or Windows Explorer could be possible with other tools (if Apple ID and password are known), Apple provides no means for accessing iOS backups and data stored in the iCloud Drive account by the apps. Considering the changes between iCloud Drive and the “old” iCloud, previous versions of Elcomsoft Phone Breaker were only able to extract information from iCloud accounts that have not been updated to use iCloud Drive.
Armed with the ability to access information stored in the subject’s cloud without knowing the original Apple ID or password (via binary iCloud/iCloud Drive tokens extracted from the subject’s computer or hard drive), Elcomsoft Phone Breaker becomes the ultimate acquisition tool for Apple iOS devices.
About Apple iCloud Drive
According to Apple, more than 72% of its users have already migrated to iOS 8, gaining the possibility to upgrade their iCloud service to iCloud Drive.
iCloud Drive Acquisition Support
The feature is available in the Forensic edition of Elcomsoft Phone Breaker.
Acquiring Keychain Items
“In order to decrypt the keychain, one will need a valid ‘securityd‘ key extracted from the device with Elcomsoft iOS Forensic Toolkit,”says Ivan Ponurovskiy, ElcomSoft Lead Mobile Forensics Developer. “Notably, this key will not change through the entire life of the device. As a result, one will only need to extract the key once to be able to deal with existing and future backups.”
