Beggsseat November 06,2015 OK overview of mobile forensics challenges. The audio was really poor quality with the scratching and beeping. I appreciated understanding the speaker's background in the security realm and mobile forensics R&D. I can appreciate that change is a true constant given the popularity of mobile devices and that different forensic tools and approaches are needed because of the nuances such as no hard drives and the avoidance of pulling out the chip. Encryption and passcodes add to the complexity. I was able to make a connection with the need to prevent remote network wipes of data by setting to airplane mode as well as the knowledge of EXIF data from the course materials. More of a general presentation that discussed challenges, solutions and issues with expanding technology.
klloyd6at November 30,2015 This video doesn’t seem very relevant now and like how others have mentioned a lot of marketing pitches. Though it would be a good introduction into mobile forensics for someone who hasn’t been exposed to it. I wasn’t all that familiar with the split between closed and open sourced and found that bit of information interesting. I was glad that I could understand and relate to many of the topics such as EXIF data, as we’d touch on it through out the course.
aholcom2at December 03,2015 This was an ok introduction to the basic concepts of mobile forensics. Like previous comments have said, it’s a little out dated and it has poor quality. I bet there are new and better videos explaining mobile forensics. What I did like about the video is how the speaker explained the process a mobile forensics examiner does in order obtain evidence and potential issues he/she may encounter. I definitely agree though that mobile forensics will continue to grow and expand as smartphone become even more powerful and functional.
sliu23at December 06,2015 From this video, I learn that Mobile Forensics is far more complicated than I thought before. As speaker said, I used to look mobile phone as a tiny computer which runs a modification operation system. Here I see the diversity in these operation systems makes forensics examiner’s work heavier. Android looks like not too hard, but iOS forensics needs more efforts. Does that mean the iOS is more secure? Another interesting fact, in the video, is that many people would like to back up their cellphone data onto the PC or cloud storage, and these could also be used as evidence, which lowers the difficulty in the forensics of mobile device. People’s habits are always a weak point of the security mechanism or system.
brober15at December 18,2015 I agree with some of the other posters, it's too bad the last 10 minutes or so was just marketing. If the presenter thought the fragmentation issue was bad back then, I wonder what he thinks now. I never thought about the impact of smartphones on burner phones, but I guess in a few years you won't even be able to buy a dumbphone even if you want to get one. Much more data to extract from a smartphone, might help investigations when they find people have been using burners.
