Oxygen Forensic Suite - Smart Forensics for Smart Phones
Moscow, Russia (PRWEB) October 4, 2010
Oxygen Software today announces Oxygen Forensic Suite 2.9, a more powerful version of the industry-leading software for forensic extraction of data from a mobile phone. Version 2.9 continues Oxygen’s blazing pace of innovation with three new features, such as extraction of data from iPhone 4; Blackberry IPD Backup Reader, for extraction of data from a Blackberry device backup, including encrypted backups protected by a password; Blackberry IPD Backup Viewer, to examine an original source IPD file in a table view; and Nokia PM Viewer, to view and analyze a physical memory dump of a Nokia phone.
Oxygen Forensic Suite 2.9 adds iPhone 4 to the list of supported handhelds which currently contains more than 1700 of the most popular cell phones and smart phones from different manufacturers. Now criminal investigators can extract and view forensically important data from the iPhone, including general phone information and SIM-card data; address book; fast dials; calendar events; text notes; incoming, outgoing and missed calls history, including time and duration; SMS, MMS and E-mail messages, including messages from custom folders; camera snapshots, video clips and voice records; files and directories from the phone memory; Skype address book, chats, Skype-to-Skype calls, SkypeOut calls, SMS messages sent from Skype. Besides, the program extracts data related to Wi-Fi networks that users ever connected their device to. For each network, it retrieves date and time of the first connection, date and time of the last connection, and shows an approximate geographic location of a network on Google Maps.
Version 2.9 also introduces Blackberry IPD Backup Reader. Much like users can acquire data from a mobile device connected to PC, they can now extract data from a Blackberry device backup created by Blackberry Desktop Manager and examine contacts, calls, messages, phonebook, calendar and file system in Oxygen Forensic Suite. Thanks to cooperation with Elcomsoft company, unique to IPD reader is decryption and extraction of data from an encrypted backup protected with a password. This new feature compliments the ability to extract data from iTunes and DMG backups (file system snapshots of Apple devices) that was introduced in the previous versions of the product. The development team plans to introduce support for extracting backups of other phone brands later this year.
To view an original source IPD file, forensic experts can utilize new Blackberry IPD Backup Viewer, the tool for examining a database in a table view with all fields and values. Earlier, the developers added the SQLite Viewer that allows forensic experts to view and analyze iPhone, Android and Symbian databases, including deleted data such as contacts, messages, calls and other forensically important information.
Oxygen Forensic Suite 2.9 also features Nokia PM Viewer, which allows users to view and analyze a physical memory dump of a Nokia phone (PM file). Users can view this data on the level of data blocks, rather than on the logical level.
