Extract Forensic Information for LEAs from Encrypted SmartPhones

Project description

New tools for mobile phone forensics

The mobile phone has near universal reach. Not surprisingly, mobile devices are commonly used for illegal activity. As such, a mobile device is implicated in just about every crime committed – from identity theft and data extraction to human trafficking, child abuse and homicide. Data encryption mechanisms add to the challenges of dealing with this phenomenon. The EU-funded EXFILES project will develop new tools for law enforcement agencies to extract data and related evidence from mobile devices. Led by a consortium of law enforcement agencies, universities and cybersecurity companies, the project will focus on software, hardware and combined methods. It will also consider the ethical and legal aspects of research and exploitation. The findings will be particularly useful for the next generation of forensic experts.
