Cybernet Systems Announces Program to Develop Mobile Device Forensic Extraction and Analysis Tools

Attention: open in a new window. Print

Ann Arbor, Michigan - Cybernet Systems Corporation, a leading defense, engineering, and simulation systems development company, today announced that they have been awarded a contract to develop new Extraction and Analysis Tools for Mobile Device Forensics.

Under this program, Cybernet is developing forensic extraction and analysis tools for NAND and NOR flash chip technologies common to mobile devices.  As such devices proliferate in form and function, these chips -- ubiquitous in iPhones, Android phones, other smart phones, flash drives, e-readers, tablets, and other solid state devices -- contain significant data needed in investigative techniques.  However, extracting this data in a usable format from smashed, soaked, or otherwise broken and discarded devices currently requires significant expertise.  Such data includes GPS tracks, texting logs, Twitter accounts, Facebook accounts, email accounts, images, and user internet histories and account information.

The goal of this program is to develop an easy-to-use system, allowing non-specialists to identify and remove such chips, extract data in a forensic manner, and reconstruct the flash chip images into a usable, actionable file system.  The resulting system will be a feasible, simple, and useful Mobile Device Forensics kit.
