Chicago Electronic Discovery released a free white paper on iPhone Forensics at chicago-ediscovery.com that reveals the vast amount of personal information stored on Apple’s iPhone and reviews techniques and software for retrieving this information. Consumers and corporations have a legitimate concern over confidential information and its unauthorized release or use. This paper educates readers on what information is stored and reviews six specific products and techniques for recovering it…The testing was performed on a 3G iPhone with less than six months of use. Yet one technique recovered more than 30,000 files, including text messages, contacts, GPS locations, website history and Facebook images. The testing also recovered highly sensitive information including online banking credentials. Most consumers and corporations are unaware of how much information modern smart phones store. As a result some sell used iPhones without securely deleting data, resulting in complete exposure of all information stored on their devices.
The white paper is available for download at http://chicago-ediscovery.com/iphone-forensicsoftware/ iphone-forensic-white-paper.html by registering with your email address. Notification of future updates will be provided as well as information on an upcoming white paper on Android Forensics.
