About the eBook

"This book is a must for anyone attempting to examine the iPhone. The level of forensic detail is excellent. If only all guides to forensics were written with this clarity!"-Andrew Sheldon, Director of Evidence Talks, computer forensics experts

With iPhone use increasing in business networks, IT and security professionals face a serious challenge: these devices store an enormous amount of information. If your staff conducts business with an iPhone, you need to know how to recover, analyze, and securely destroy sensitive data. iPhone Forensics supplies the knowledge necessary to conduct complete and highly specialized forensic analysis of the iPhone, iPhone 3G, and iPod Touch. This book helps you:

  • Determine what type of data is stored on the device
  • Break v1.x and v2.x passcode-protected iPhones to gain access to the device
  • Build a custom recovery toolkit for the iPhone
  • Interrupt iPhone 3G's "secure wipe" process
  • Conduct data recovery of a v1.x and v2.x iPhone user disk partition, and preserve and recover the entire raw user disk partition
  • Recover deleted voicemail, images, email, and other personal data, using data carving techniques
  • Recover geotagged metadata from camera photos
  • Discover Google map lookups, typing cache, and other data stored on the live file system
  • Extract contact information from the iPhone's database
  • Use different recovery strategies based on case needs

And more. iPhone Forensics includes techniques used by more than 200 law enforcement agencies worldwide, and is a must-have for any corporate compliance and disaster recovery plan.
