JTAG 2.0 Forensics

Learn the latest techniques for accessing mobile devices using the JTAG technique for data recovery and device unlocking. The newly designed course incorporates the new Teel Tech JTAG Forensic Certification “TJFC” test, as an option for students. All students receive a Certificate of Attendance, and those who pass the practical examination successfully will earn their TJFC.

Molex Close Up

New Class Additions
  • New probing processes
  • Password recovery on newer devices
  • New soldering processes
  • Students learn on Z3X box, in addition to Riff
  • Information on new equipment

 

Why do we need JTAG 2.0? — it helps us get into these phones:
  • Locked Android cell phone with USB Debugging turned off
  • Locked Windows phones
  • Locked proprietary OS phones
  • Physical memory acquisition where tools don’t support this
  • Damaged or broken phones

 
This comprehensive course enables investigators to learn and build on the required soldering skills and JTAG access options through practice and many practical exercises.  Students leave class with a full skillset to continue on performing JTAG 2.0 back at the lab.

 

Course Essential components: 
  • Disassembly and assembly of devices
  • Extensive soldering lessons, as well as using Molex Adapters.
  • Identify the test access points (TAPs) using various means, as well as the supplied Z3X Box
  • eMMC Reads – Working directly with eMMC partitions on live phones to save only the data you need.
  • Production of a physical dump of a locked / disabled USB Android phone, identification of the password and then restore user data by using your forensics tools.
  • Utilizing Python scripts for recovering pattern/pin locks. Introductory information using open source scripts.
  • Learn how to use commercial tools with JTAG dumps, such as UFED PA, Magnet IEF, Oxygen Detective
  • Students are provided with multiple devices to perform JTAG examinations.
  • All students receive Certificate of Participation
  • Students Receive the complimentary TeelTech JTAG RIFF Kit, as well as UFED PA, Magnet IEF, Belkasoft and Oxygen demo licenses.
  • Final Practical Exam to Earn the Teel JTAG Forensic Certification “TJFC” consists of a fully assembled locked device that students disassemble, perform the JTAG acquisition to acquire the raw data, and retrieve pattern lock. Students reassemble device, power up and unlock the device with acquired pattern lock code.

Additional Details

  1. New Molex adapter connections – Some phones allow connection without soldering, these techniques are addressed.
  2. eMMC Reads – Working directly with eMMC partitions on live phones to save only the data you need.
  3. Identify the test access points (TAPs) using various techniques and tools.
  4. Utilizing Python scripts for recovering pattern/pin locks. Introductory information using open source scripts.
  5. Advanced HashCat processing for pattern/PIN password lock the new style Android OS phones.
  6. Implementation of JTAG support in Cellebrite to RAW – to decode dumps.

 

Teel Tech JTAG Chip-off Student Training 2Students will use today’s tools with features for assisting in analyzing  JTAG data, including UFED Physical Analyzer and IEF Forensics.  Trial versions of each software are provided to students at class, along with the Riff Box and Molex connectors.

Graduating students receive discounts on JTAG gear from TeelTech.


Chip-off 2.0 Forensics


Teel Tech Chip-Off 2.0 provides students with a comprehensive education into performing forensics on memory chips used in today’s mobile devices and other media.

 

In depth information about eMMC, eMCP, and UFS chips

  • Newest BGA chip pinout layouts
  • Applying proper techniques for non-heat chip removal
  • Pros and cons of physical manipulation caused by heat or friction removal techniques
  • Updated heat removal processes
  • Introduction to monolithic devices and data recovery techniques
  • New tools and techniques for chip-off extraction
  • Earn the TeelTech Chip-Off Forensics Certification “TCFC”



Why Chip-Off 2.0? — it supports the following:
  • Damaged or destroyed devices
  • Devices unsupported by commercial tools
  • Unsupported advanced data extraction methods

This course consists of hands-on practicals and theory presentations that encompass proper and safe chip removal and data extraction. All students receive a Certificate of Attendance, and the opportunity to take the TCFC certification test.

Further analysis of the data will be covered, and students shall use leading forensics software in the class to analyze data.
