Oxygen Software has updated its flagship mobile forensic product, Oxygen Forensic Suite 2013, adding the ability to view and analyze aggregated contact information through multiple acquired devices. The new release also includes an enhanced search algorithm, allowing investigators to execute complex searches in background without slowing down overall performance.
The re-worked aggregate view enables forensic experts to instantly view matching and similar contacts discovered across several devices. The ability to view aggregated contacts can help investigators collect additional information about a contact that may be available across the range of devices being analyzed.The updated search engine adds user-manageable lists of frequently searched keywords and regular expressions, allowing investigators to execute the most common searches in just a few clicks. In addition, the new search algorithm now works completely in background, allowing forensic experts to continue working with the main product while a lengthy search is being executed.
Improved Aggregated Contacts View
Oxygen Forensic Suite 2013 can collect information about a contact from a wide range of data sources. In Aggregated Contacts view, the tool concatenates information about a person obtained from the phone’s address book, installed instant messenger applications, social network apps, text messages, Skype, event log and other sources. As a result, investigators gain instant access to the most complete information about a contact available throughout the device.
The new version of the Aggregated Contacts view now enables the analysis of various data sources obtained from different mobile devices. Investigators can now specify mobile devices to be analyzed for contact information. The ability to aggregate data about a contact contained across a range of devices belonging to different owners provides the most complete information about a person.
Enhanced Search Engine
The improved search engine now allows unobtrusive background execution, enabling investigators run complex searches without slowing down the rest of their work. The search is now executed in a separate process, allowing forensic experts to continue working with the data acquired in the main product.
The newly added Regular Expressions Library allows experts maintaining personalized lists of frequently used regular expressions such as phone area codes, trigger phrases, email domain names or virtually any other types of information.
The final improvement to the search functionality allows investigators maintaining and using a list of frequently used keywords. Keyword List Manager implements the ability to run searches for a particular keyword or phrase in just a few clicks, and allows searching through acquired phone data for all list entries at once. Investigators can now create their own lists of threatening and offensive keywords, save nickname lists, or create lists of keywords associated with terrorist activities, searching the data for multiple keywords with a single action instead of having to run multiple individual searches.
Each search result can now be exported or printed, producing a standard report that can be presented as evidence to the court.
