IEF Mobile Module

Reviewed by John J. Carney, Carney Forensics

Introduction

I am a digital forensics examiner who early in my career studied computer science and wrote code as a software developer and later in my career studied law and became a licensed attorney. I have acquired certifications in both mobile device forensics and computer forensics and own a private digital forensics firm in Minnesota. We love mobile! Half our case load is recovering dozens of flavors of deleted messages from every variety of phone known to humanity. But we also devise evidence strategy for complex civil litigation and draft preservation letters and requests for production and advise on e-discovery issues, which now increasingly turn on mobile evidence.   more ...

Guidance Software EnCase Training Computer Forensics I

Reviewed by Scar de Courcier, Forensic Focus

During the first week of December 2014, Guidance Software ran a computer forensics training course at its Slough offices in the UK, with the aim of helping forensic practitioners to understand and use EnCase as part of their investigations.

Oxygen Forensic Suite 2014

Reviewed by Mark Rigby, Faraday Forensics Ltd

Oxygen Forensic Suite 2014 is specialist software aimed squarely at mobile phone forensics. It claims to have the “widest range of supported devices” with over 8,400 models listed and is geared towards smart-phones with a particular emphasis on the analysis of data recovered from them.

It is straightforward to use once you get your head around the way it works, and with some thought you can make it fit into your examination system quite easily. You don’t have to be particularly savvy to use it, but you do to get the most out of it and be able to use it effectively.

There are several license types, such as “Internet” (software key), USB dongle (individual machine) and an enterprise version whereby a single USB dongle is installed on a server and allows several machines to use the software at the same time.   more ...

Internet Evidence Finder (IEF)

Magnet Forensics, developer of IEF
Reviewed by BitHead (discussion thread here).

When this review started at the beginning of August 2012, Internet Evidence Finder (IEF) was a project of Jad Saliba of JADSoftware. At that time the version was 5.41.

The interface was simple, and IEF was an easy to use tool that found a lot of artifacts and displayed them in an easy to follow report.

In the middle of August I was contacted by Adam Belsher of JADSoftware and told there was going to be a few major changes coming to JADSoftware. A week later Saliba announced “JADsoftware has a new identity, including a new company name – Magnet Forensics.”   more ...
