As part of the Training & Education theme for Issue 5 Digital Forensics Magazine is carrying out a global survey. The survey asks digital forensic practitioners around the world to complete the survey with a view to ascertain the level of qualifications held.

The survey investigates the thoughts of practitioners on what they believe are the core competencies required of a digital forensics practitioner. They are also asking what knowledge would be required if there were practitioners graded at basic, intermediate and advanced levels.

Tony Campbell, one of the DFM publishing team said, “By asking the practitioners opinions with regard to international standards on training we hope to inform the debate going on in a number of forums on this topic.

The survey will be open over the next 3 months and we are encouraging all parties with a vested interest in the subject to take the survey to help us all understand the current status of training and education in Digital Forensics and shape the future. This is your profession, help us inform and guide those that are setting standards and making decisions about our profession. “

Readers are urged to take the 3 minute survey today at www.surveymonkey.com/s/dfm to make sure their thoughts and opinions are captured.

A summary of the results will be released in forthcoming monthly newsletters available to Digital Forensics Magazine newsletter subscribers, and the main findings will form the basis of an article in the main magazine published later this year.

ElcomSoft Co. Ltd. breaks yet another record by making password recovery faster and more affordable once again. The company raises the standard of high-performance, affordable password recovery by supporting the newest consumergrade video accelerators from ATI. The support of massively parallel computing available in the newest ATI video accelerators such as ATI Radeon HD5970 allows ElcomSoft to achieve password recovery speeds exceeding those of high-end CPUs and competing NVIDIA boards, including NVIDIA Tesla systems.

Benchmarks performed by ElcomSoft demonstrate that ATI Radeon HD5970 accelerated password recovery works up to 20 times faster than Core i7-960, Intel’s current top of the line CPU unit. The password recovery speed of the new sub-thousand dollar video card from ATI exceeds the performance of enterprise-grade NVIDIA Tesla solutions priced at $10,000. When password recovery is concerned, ATI Radeon HD5970 provides twice the performance of NVIDIA Tesla for a fraction of the price.

ElcomSoft is looking forward to testing its software on the upcoming NVIDIA Tesla (S2050/S2070), which will be available in Q2/Q3’2010, as well as NVIDIA’s Next Generation CUDA architecture code named Fermi, which is claimed to surpass anything announced by NVIDIA’s leading GPU competitor (AMD).

About Elcomsoft iPhone Password Breaker
Elcomsoft iPhone Password Breaker is the first commercially available GPU-accelerated tool to unlock encrypted iPhone and iPod Touch backups. The new release makes use of the massively parallel computing available with the latest ATI and NVIDIA boards, including NVIDIA’s high end Tesla solutions. ATI-accelerated Elcomsoft iPhone Password Breaker grants forensic access to information stored in Apple devices by recovering password-protected backups to iPhone 2G, 3G and 3GS, iPod Touch 1st through
3rd Gen up to 20 times faster than tools using top of the line Intel CPU units such as Core i7-960. The tool recovers the original plain-text password protecting iPhone and iPod backups. Brute force and advanced dictionary attacks with a wide range of permutations are available to speed up password recovery even further. Elcomsoft iPhone Password Breaker does not require Apple iTunes or any third party software to be installed.

About Elcomsoft Wireless Security Auditor
Elcomsoft Wireless Security Auditor is the first commercially available ATI-accelerated solution to allow system administrators audit wireless network security. The tool attempts to recover the original WPA/WPA2 PSK password protecting Wi-Fi communications. GPU-accelerated dictionary attacks with a wide range of permutations allow simulating full-scale attacks on wireless infrastructure. By employing massively parallel computing available in the latest ATI video cards, ElcomSoft has increased the power of the attack twentyfold compared to top of the line, quad-core Intel CPU, the Core i7-960, and doubled the recovery speed compared to significantly more expensive NVIDIA Tesla based solutions.

Supporting GPU acceleration technologies offered by both major GPU manufacturers, ATI and NVIDIA, ElcomSoft offers the fastest and most cost-efficient wireless security audit solution on the market. The support of the latest ATI hardware makes Elcomsoft Wireless Security Auditor the most powerful and the most cost-effective Wi-Fi password recovery solution currently available on the market.
