Faraday bags or RF Shield bags are enclosures formed by conducting materials, either solid or mesh. These specialist materials block external static electrical fields, (including radio waves). They are named after the British physicist Michael Faraday, who built the first one in 1836. An external radio field will cause the electrical charges within the conducting material to redistribute themselves, to cancel the radio fields effect in the cages interior.
By utilising a wide range of cutting edge hardware and software, Disklabs are able to perform investigative procedures upon mobile phone usage. Disklabs are able to identify and trace cases of inappropriate use of cell phones and other mobile technologies across a variety of networks, both digital and analogue. Additionally Disklabs is able to perform mobile phone forensics to prove or disprove cases of inappropriate data capture using camera or microphone built-in to the mobile phone.
