The paper reviews specific software and techniques that analysts and investigators can use to recover the vast amount of information stored on Apple’s iPhones.
In addition to reviewing forensic tools, the iPhone forensics white paper takes readers through a forensic analysis with each tool and reports on the installation, acquisition, reporting and accuracy of the tool.
The use of mobile forensics to uncover data has become increasingly important in corporate investigations, civil disputes and criminal cases. During a typical iPhone investigation, viaForensics has recovered more than 60,000 files, including text messages, contacts, GPS locations, website history, online banking credentials and Facebook images. This type of data has been used by law enforcement, federal agencies and corporations in investigations and criminal and civil cases.
The white paper is available online. Registration for future updates is available and will also provide information on an upcoming white paper on Android Forensics.
