NIST Tests Forensic Methods For Getting Data From Damaged Mobile Phones

Tuesday, February 18, 2020 (15:43:21)
by Richard Press

Criminals sometimes damage their mobile phones in an attempt to destroy evidence. They might smash, shoot, submerge or cook their phones, but forensics experts can often retrieve the evidence anyway. Now, researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have tested how well these forensic methods work.

A damaged phone might not power on, and the data port might not work, so experts use hardware and software tools to directly access the phone’s memory chips. These include hacking tools, albeit ones that may be lawfully used as part of a criminal investigation. Because these methods produce data that might be presented as evidence in court, it’s important to know if they can be trusted.

“Our goal was to test the validity of these methods,” said Rick Ayers, the NIST digital forensics expert who led the study. “Do they reliably produce accurate results?”

The Rise Of Evil HID Devices

Thursday, February 13, 2020 (13:34:00)
Arthur Villeneuve and Franck Bitsch discuss their research at DFRWS EU 2019.

Arthur: Good morning. My name is Arthur, this is Franck. We are going to talk about malicious HID devices. We represent what is HID devices just after. We’re working for a French bank.

The agenda today: we will start with a short introduction about HID devices, and typically the presentation will look at malicious HID devices. We will spend some time on attacker possibilities; Franck is doing the blue team, so the defence side; I am on the red team, so the attacker side. And Franck will use some practical malware forensics on the malicious HID devices, and what information can be extracted from a chip, and finally some takeaways.
