A Targeted Data Extraction System for Mobile Devices

Abstract : Smartphones contain large amounts of data that are of significant interest in forensic investigations. In many situations, a smartphone owner may be willing to provide a forensic investigator with access to data under a documented consent agreement. However, for privacy or personal reasons, not all the smartphone data may be extracted for analysis. Courts have also opined that only data relevant to the investigation at hand may be extracted.This chapter describes the design and implementation of a targeted data extraction system for mobile devices. It assumes user consent and implements state-of-the-art filtering using machine learning techniques. The system can be used to identify and extract selected data from smartphones in real time at crime scenes. Experiments conducted with iOS and Android devices demonstrate the utility of the targeted data extraction system.
