Mobile forensics is an example of one of the newer technologies that we have, introducing new challenges into the field of forensics and of course more outlets of crime for criminals. That being said, considering the structure of mobile devices, while there are major overlaps between them and PCs, there are components that are going to be different as explained in this video. I think the forensic tools that are out there are going to be on a consistent stage of growth and testing as they continue to keep up with the technological changes and updates that mobile devices experience.

whillerat September 21,2017 The presenter seemed to be quite knowledgeable about the nitty gritty details of different OS versions. I wonder if OS changes are as rapid now as they were in 2013. This presentation was four years old. I would like to see contemporary information on mobile device forensics, especially current tools and standards in the field. Also, I am curious about what, if any, requirements and restrictions governments have placed on mobile device manufacturers to facilitate the collection of data for legal purposes.
jhineyat October 27,2017 I agree with many others that much of this is badly outdated. However, four years later in 2017 Android and iOS still have the largest market shares. It appears to be a comprehensive summary of challenges in early Android and iOS mobile forensics. In the mobile world there seems to be much more complexity as the different operating systems and versions require different approaches and tools.
ttran45at November 12,2017 This is a dated video. Mobile forensic is a part of digital forensic. However, this is more complicated comparing to desktop forensic because it has no RAM. Change happens all the time. Overtime, we need to upgrade the phone version, it means we upgrade phone periodically. The forensic tool also needs to be updated to catch up the growing of mobile forensic. IPhone seems more secure than Android phone. There will be no longer an easy way to access the passcode in IOS or Android. The IPhone can be jail broken. With Android app, people can write malicious malware and it will be downloaded by users easily.
