The SuperImager® Plus 8” 3 NVMe +3 SATA+4 SAS Portable Forensic Unit

SuperImager Plus 8” Portable Forensic Field unit with 3 NVMe + 4 SAS/SATA + 3 SATA+ TB3.0+7 USB 3.2 ports. It is one of the top performance Field Computer Forensic Imaging tools and a Complete Digital Forensic Investigation platform

The unit is Portable, Compact, easy to carry, and extremely fast. It is built with 2 NVMe U.2 data & power ports, 2 SATA3 data & power ports, e-SATA port, 8 USB3.0/3.1 ports, and a Thunderbolt 3.0 port.

The unit is configured with Dual Open OS of Linux for fast, efficient Forensic imaging and Windows 10 for running full Forensic Analysis (EnCase, Nuix, Axiom, and others), cellphone data extraction(Cellebrite, MASB, and others), and triage data collection. Using the Linux OS, the user can run: multiple, parallel simultaneous independent forensic imaging sessions (mirror image, image a single partition, Linux-DD, EnCase, mix E01/DD, VHD, Triage with Files and Folders) with 4 HASH values(MD5, SHA1, SHA2, and SHA512 run all the four at the same time), encryption, compression, keyword search all on the fly and save images to a network.

The max speed achieved: 31GB/min SATA SSD, 187GB/min NVMe SSD.

The unit hardware is robust, running i7 12 generation CPU with 32GB of memory, 1TB SSD, and 8” LCD display.

Main ports:

• 3 SATA ports: 2 SATA ports (power & data) and one e-SATA port on the main unit

• 4 SAS/SATA ports: On the TB Expansion Box

• 3 NVMe ports: 2 U.2 NVMe on the main unit (power & data) and one U.2 & M.2 NVMe on the TB Expansion Box

• TB3.0 port

The unit supplied with:

• Remote Capture KIT

• Virtual Emulator (viewing the Suspect drive before the capture).

• 2 U.2 Extension Cables.

• 2 U.2 to M.2 NVMe adapters.

• Thunderbolt 3.0 to PCI-E Expansion Box with 4 SAS ports controller and with U.2 and M.2 NVMe controller.

The Thunderbolt Expansion box brings a lot of additional connectivity.

Thunderbolt 3.0 to 10GbE adapter and the Mac/Thunderbolt acquisition kit are important options.

To compare this unit to other MediaClone Portable units that support NVMe: SuperImager Plus 8” T3 unit has one NVMe port, and the SuperImager Plus 8” with mix 5 NVMe + 5 SAS/SATA has 5 NVMe ports.

Here are some of the tasks that the user can do:

1) Multiple Parallel Forensic Capture: Mirror (bit by bit), Linux-DD format, E01/Ex01 format (with full compression), Mixed-Format DD/E01, Single partition, copy the whole drive or only parts. Copy 1:6/2:4/3:3 for SATA drives, 1:1, 1:2 for NVMe SSD, 2:2 for SAS drives, or any mix between the 3 NVMe ports to 7 SATA/SAS ports or 8 USB3.0/3.1 ports.

2) Run a Selective Imaging (Targeted Imaging) of files, folders, and partitions with file extension filters and save HASH and metadata of the files.

3) Erase data from the Evidence drive before use - using DoD (ECE, E), Security Erase, NVMe Secure Erase, Sanitize, or User-Erase protocols.

4) View the Suspect drive directly on the Ubuntu Desktop screen using the virtual drive emulator.

5) Encrypt the data while capturing (using the AES256 engine) and decryption at the destination using MediaClone utility

6) HASH the data while capturing – run all the four MD5, SHA-1, SHA-2, and SHA-512 HASH engines, simultaneously.

7) Run a quick Keyword Search on the Suspect drive before or during the capture.

8) Run Multiple Cellphones/Tablets data Extraction and Analysis using a third-party application on the Windows 10 side.

9) Run the Forensic Triage application with selective capture mode or with the use of a third-party application on the Windows 10 side.

10) Run a full Forensic Analysis application like Encase/Nuix/FTK/Axiom.

11) Run Virtual Drive Emulator to view the Suspect drive before captured (Linux)

12) Run Remote Capture from unopened laptops - Intel-Based CPU (supplied with this unit).

13) Use the Thunderbolt 3.0 port to capture data from Mac using the Thunderbolt-Mac acquisition kit that supports Mac with Thunderbolt 2/3 port or 1394 port, or connect to 10GbE network with the use of TB3.0 to 10GbE adapter.

14) Unlock drives with passcode such ATA, BitLocker, Opal for SED drives

15) Use the SuperImager Plus unit as a “Write Blocker” device: This feature enables the unit to function as a secure bridge between workstations on a network to Suspect drives attached to the SuperImager unit and by using the iSCSI protocol over a network connection. A forensic investigator using a workstation or laptop in one location can access a Suspect drive in different places in the Writes-Block safe mode. The unit will be connected to the same network, and the Suspect drive will be attached to the unit in read-only mode. The unit will act as a “write blocker” for any of the unit’s attached storage, such as SAS, SATA, USB, 1394, FC, SCSI, and NVMe.

Additional operations: HASH authentication, Drive Diagnostics, Evidence drive erase before use, image restores from DD/E01, and automation with scripting.

The main difference between using a product with U.2 port (and with Extension cables) vs. using M.2 port and plugging the media directly into the port:

NVMe U.2 port is more versatile and can support three types of NVMe SSD: M.2, U.2, PCIE NVMe storage controller, while M.2 port is limited to M.2 SSD. Using the U.2 Extension cables protects the unit's NVMe port from overuse and many insertions by plugging the SSD directly into the unit's port and damaging the port. (It is easier to replace an extension cable than the interface board of a damaged port!). Competitors that use NVMe M.2 ports are limited with their supports (Only M.2), and force the user to plug the media directly into the port. U.2 extension cables are very durable and built with high quality and precision, and they exhibit an extreme transfer rate of over 200 GB/min.
