In the ever-growing world of mobile device forensics, talking about Android forensics always sounds like a trip to the candy store. Google’s playful names for their software versions don’t typically inspire fear in the hearts of hardened forensicators; however, the press release for Android Marshmallow made some of us think twice.

Google’s release of the software included an announcement that they would re-enable full disk encryption in devices that came with Android 6.0.

Marshmallow ended up bringing multiple changes to security for the end user. Some of those changes included a supported fingerprint API, changes to the application permissions, full-disk encryption, a stronger password storage system, and the inclusion of protected adoptable storage.

I’m hosting a webinar to dive into the security changes on Sept. 27. Please join me to discuss:
• Full-disk encryption changes
• Gatekeeper password storage
• Adoptable storage encryption
• Necessary workflow changes
• Solutions to other Marshmallow issues

You may be wondering why we’re just now discussing issues from Android Marshmallow when their release of Nougat (7.0) is just around the corner. Primarily it’s because of the distribution of the software.

Between carriers and device manufactures sticking their hands in the pot, Android devices tend not to update as quickly. For instance, even though Marshmallow was released on October 14, 2015, as of August 1, 2016 it still only features a 15.2% distribution.

As the release of Nougat approaches (and don’t worry, we’re getting ready for that one too), we need to make sure that our customers and partners are navigating Marshmallow as successfully as they can. We hope you can join us.

Here are the details:

Magnet Forensics' Matt Suiche on the Rise of e-Crime and Info Stealers

Forensic Focus 12th January 2023 3:00 am

Just like your current holiday shopping for last minute presents a lot of the good stuff has gone off the shelves already. You reach to the back and find the toy nobody really wanted but it’s the thought that counts, you stare down at Si and Desi’s Holiday Special 2022 podcast. 

Please join these two as they lament over the year that was, discuss all the things they didn’t do but promise they will do them next year, query whether putting a NAS in the storage of a roller door is a good idea, and finally arrive at what they’re looking forward to bringing you in the new year.
