From mobile phones to court – A complete FORensic investigation chain targeting MOBILE devices

Project description

English EN

Fighting crime with mobile technology, mobile forensics standard and training

Criminals commonly use mobile phones to communicate information on illegal activities. Therefore, accessing materials contained on phones is crucial for fighting crime. The data, which law enforcement agencies (LEAs) aim to recover includes call history, chat messages, web browser history, email, contacts and GPS location information. FORMOBILE reviews the current mobile forensics and assesses the requirements of LEAs for future improvements. With respect to the GDPR the consortium produces new tools to unlock, acquire and decode previously unattainable data. A new standard, containing best practices, will guide through the existing documentation. Training will support both initiatives. The goals are to create an end-to-end investigation chain for mobile devices, maximising the use of digital evidence to support criminal investigation and prosecution.
