by Oleg Afonin, Elcomsoft

Apple is about to launch its next-generation iOS in just a few days. Researching developer betas, we discovered that iOS 11 implements a number of new security measures. The purpose of these measures is better protecting the privacy of Apple customers and once again increasing security of device data. While some measures (such as the new S.O.S. sequence) are widely advertised, some other security improvements went unnoticed by the public. Let us have a look at the changes and any forensic implications they have.

Cellular GPS Evidence: Waze + Cellebrite + CellHawk

Friday, September 08, 2017 (13:55:53)
by Patrick Siewert, Principal Consultant, Pro Digital Forensic Consulting

It’s becoming common knowledge that location evidence on cellular devices can provide a wealth of evidence in any number of civil, criminal and investigative matters. Law enforcement agencies use cellular location evidence from service providers to help place a criminal suspect at or near a crime scene in a given time frame.
