  Annotation: This report describes the features and manufacturer claims for the SFP1215W Forensic Pouch - which enables first responders to seize and make secure mobile digital devices in the field and view the internal memory - and results are presented from performance testing of the SFP1215W by the National Institute of Justice’s Electronic Crime Technology Center of Excellence.
Abstract: The demand is increasing for the ability of first responders and examiners to conduct field examinations of mobile digital devices. The National Institute of Justice’s “Electronic Crime Scene Investigation: A Guide for First Responders” recommends that first responders have radio frequency-shielding material such as faraday isolation bags when mobile digital communication devices are seized in the field. Although there is a wide selection of faraday bags available to first responders, they are typically made of solid material that makes it difficult or impossible to see the screen of most smart phones. Select Fabricators, Inc. has developed a faraday bag, the SFP1215W Forensic Pouch that includes a clear window, which allows for hands-on manipulation of wireless devices in an RF-tight environment, ensuring that internal data are not compromised from the moment of capture. The independent testing of the Select Fabricator SFP1215 Forensic Pouch determined that it performed as advertised by the manufacturer. It blocked cellular connections on all of the devices processed while using the Forensic Pouch. The device’s screen could be viewed through the soft material window. The internal USB connection in the pouch made it easy to attach the device to a computer or other type of reader. 3 figures
