TBUI11at November 12,2017 This video is similar to one of our labs which reminds me cellphone locates you wherever and whenever as long as it’s not on airplane mode. Think of the data is to be generated from our daily activities and what would happen if attacker had access to it. The field of mobile forensics is growing as forensic analysts are trying to catch up with advanced/enhanced software and encryption every day.
lnguye46at November 20,2017 One of the more interesting videos. The speaker seems pretty young although he got a masters in forensic and information security. His primary focus is mobile forensic. It will be interesting to see how far mobile device will go in the future. Kevin believes your smartphone is much more than a computer because of the different sensors and gps tracking. It’s a timeline of people's activities. As with computers although, there are many careful steps you have to take to hack the phones. Certain features on iPhone and android are different so you have to be careful with which device you are working with such as differences in passcode encryption, sandbox access, etc.
fsalzaabiat November 21,2017 Hackers can break into iOS and Android mobile devices by exploiting bugs in their systems. These bugs are usually fixed by users keeping their machines updated with the latest software versions. The challenge of mobile device manufacturers is to create devices that are highly secure and make it very hard for hackers to penetrate.
nparkeat December 03,2017 This video is a little outdated (about 4 years) but some of the information provided gave a little insight to the history of mobile analysis. During its initial time, there was much difficultly doing forensic analysis on mobile devices. Mobile devices require more interaction with the evidence during acquisition, which back then had a big opposition since many examiners technique was to make no modifications or interaction of the evidence during acquisition. Also the comparisons between the Android and IOS was interesting. I wonder how much is still current in this presentation, since so much has changed with both of these mobile devices.
Kalbuainainat December 03,2017 Mobile Forensic Challenges on iOS and Android – Bugs found in the iOS and Android systems help hackers break these devices. Hackers fix these bugs when users update their machines software versions and it is difficult for the manufacturers to prevent such attacks. Therefore, mobile developers try to manufacture safe phones that are hard to break by hackers.
