Lance Mueller - cell phone forensic tools

For anyone who missed it earlier this month, Lance Mueller posted some interesting thoughts on his blog about the current state of cell phone forensics:

As part of my work, I recently put together a fairly comprehensive cell phone forensic course. As part of the development phase of this project, I had a chance to use most of all the common cell phone forensic tools and put them through the paces with over 50 different phones, most of which were international models.

In opinion, the forensic industry is nowhere near where we are today with cell phone forensics compared to computer forensics. Mostly because it is a fairly new sub-field of digital forensics and the tools just have not been around long and have not yet evolved to the state where the current computer forensic tools are at.

Read the rest, including tool evaluations, here.
