Maintainer: ATC-NY

License: Commercial (free to law enforcement)

Mac Marshal is a tool to analyze Mac OS X file system images. It scans a Macintosh disk image, automatically detects and displays Macintosh and Windows operating systems and virtual machine images, then runs a number of analysis tools on the image to extract Mac OS X-specific forensic evidence written by the OS and common applications.

Mac Marshal follows forensic best practices and maintains a detailed log file of all activities it performs. It produces reports in RTF, PDF, and HTML formats, and runs on Mac OS X-based analysis machines.

Version 1.0 was released in January 2009, available at no cost to US law enforcement, with a commercial version available to non-law enforcement.


Mac Marshal was developed by ATC-NY, supported by a contract with the US National Institute of Justice (NIJ). The project was originally named MEGA.
