XRY SIM id-Cloner
When examining GSM based mobile phones the forensic examiner is faced with two challenges:
1) Under the original GSM standards a mobile phone is required to have a SIM card inserted before it will allow full access to the operating system and function normally.
2) If a GSM device is turned on with a live SIM card inserted, then it will attempt to make a network connection and the risk of data contamination occurs.
The SIM id-Cloner card system solves these problems. It will prevent a GSM network connection without effecting the normal operation of the device allowing an examiner to perform a logical extraction. It will also be of assistance to examiners faced with a mobile phone which does not have the original SIM card present.
Under the GSM standards a mobile device should delete the call history if it detects that a new SIM card has been inserted into it. An examiner who has a mobile without a SIM card can use SIM id-Cloner to create a duplicate SIM card containing the same critical information as the original SIM, which will then give access to the handset without causing the device to delete the call history list. Please note that the examiner needs either the ICCID or IMSI, which normally requires a contact with the mobile network operator to perform this function.
This product is supplied as part of the XRY Logical system as standard, it can however be purchased separately if required.
