MAGNET Chromebook Acquisition Assistant™

Chromebook Acquisition Assistant: What does it do?

The MAGNET Chromebook Acquisition Assistant (MCAA) will help you acquire a logical image from a Chromebook when you have the username and password, and without requiring it to be in Developer Mode. Chromebook forensic images are acquired with a USB drive and the MCAA’s wizard style walkthrough will help you prepare the USB drive for image acquisition. The MCAA has been developed to automate much of the workflow first proposed in the Daniel Dickerman Chromebook Forensic Acquisition method.
