Summary0007434: Mobile Verification Toolkit (MVT) - forensics tool
DescriptionMobile Verification Toolkit (MVT) is a collection of utilities designed to facilitate the consensual forensic acquisition of iOS and Android devices for the purpose of identifying any signs of compromise. This tool was central to the methodology used to discover cases of infections as part of the Pegasus Project (, and development continues towards a general-purpose forensic toolkit for researchers and investigators working on targeted threats.

It is written in Python and developed at:
And is available on PyPi:

I am the creator and main developer of mvt, and I would be happy to assist in the process of adding it to Kali. I believe this addition would be greatly beneficial to ours and Kali's users, particularly for those looking to leverage Kali as a forensic live distro when conducting acquisition and analysis of suspected devices.

Although it is not a hard dependency, it would be useful to add to the Kali toolbase also libimobiledevice (and libimobiledevice-utils), which is a necessary toolkit when working with iOS devices.
