TItle: Getting Saucy with APFS! - The State of Apple’s New File System

Do you know what happens when a new file system comes out? ABSOLUTE MAYHEM! All your forensic analysis tools are broken and you are thrown into the forensic dark ages - stuck with just a hex editor and cold sweat.

Ok, I might be slightly over dramatic but seriously, new file systems don’t come around very often, how do forensic analysts deal with this? APFS was introduced on iOS devices with 10.3 and natively on macOS with 10.13, High Sierra. This talk will go through the current state of Apple’s new Apple File System (APFS). Topics discussed will include file system features, imaging, analysis methods, and current tool support.
