S(in)SZ - Samsung (in) Secure Secret Zone

  • Francesco Picasso
  • Thursday, June 15th, 6:00pm - 7:00pm

(un)SecretZone

The Samsung, now Seagate, SecretZone (SSZ) is a software program that protects personal information by creating a secure, password-protected folder on the Samsung external drive. This software is provided free along with Samsung devices, as for example a M series device, and can only be used with such devices.

This presentation will share two real DF cases where such tool was used by the suspects to hide their data, and how these cases were handled to overcome such protection. Moreover a major flaw in the SSZ implementation will be addressed, which allows to easily decrypt the whole "secret zone", despite the strong algorithms used (AES, Blowfish).
