Fraud and criminal cases often include smartphones from different brands and suspects. These mobile devices allow users to send all sort of data and coordinate coups. Some people do not think that is is possible to recover data from phones they threw into rivers or out of building windows. We have conducted several chip-offs which resulted in the successful delivery of digital data stored in such severely damaged smartphones.
LOOKING AT SMARTPHONE CHIPS
Our laboratory has a reference device depot holding a wide range of cellphones (2400+), smartphones (500+), tablets (40+), hard drives (1000+), SSD (50+) and other flash-based devices (70+).
This allows us to find the optimal path to get the data out. Sometimes the extraction might take weeks or months, but where others give up, we continue until we reach the target.
We have successfully extracted data from smartphones that were run over by heavy vehicles. We were got out data from a device that was hit at with a tool in order to destroy the evidence. Even cases damaged by salt water, river and bath water … eventually resulted in the successful extraction of data.
We get help requests from companies, auditors, manufacturers, security forces, military, and even data recovery experts around the world.
We don’t give up on the first obstacle. We continue till we succeed or the device is definitely dead.
EXTRACTING EVIDENCE FROM SMARTPHONE AND TABLET
The field of mobile forensics is focused on gathering digital evidence out of intelligent devices such as Smartphones, tablets and GPS systems. Even cell phones still have a value for conducting a forensic examination. Is is really so easy to extract digital evidence from smartphones? A simple app of backup software will not deliver data that is showing clean integrity that it will withhold a court examination.
Therefore professional forensics requires equipment and expertise. The tools used have special protection modes to avoid manipulating the data inside the device and the extracted copy. In some cases, you need to brute force a locked phone. Some methods like shadow copying can help surpase an iPhone protection but they are a time-consuming campaign. Das Geht von einem Lesegerät mit Schreibblocker bis hin zu Entschlüsselungssystemen, die eventuell eine PIN herausfinden können, um ein Handy zu entsperren.
