Mobile Device Digital Forensics

Our highly-qualified mobile forensic examiners at Coker Forensic Services are experts in applying state-of-the-art forensic technology to assist investigators in uncovering and preserving crucial evidence in such investigations.

Mobile vs. Computer Forensics Although Mobile and Computer forensics share techniques in common, mobile forensics requires additional tools and techniques due to the unique characteristics of mobile devices.
We don’t spend our lives in front of desktops or laptops – they travel with us as smartphones, wearables, and automotive systems. There may be no better witness to someone’s activities than the devices they bring with them.

Reduced Standardization in Mobile Devices Hardware, storage media and interfaces are far less standardized than in the world of PCs. Mobile device manufacturers employ proprietary operating systems, file systems, services and peripherals far more than desktop or laptop manufacturers. The mobile world deploys a richer selection of apps to their phones or tablets than for PCs too. Such factors require our examiners to apply a larger set of specialized evidence search and extract techniques.

Commonalities However, the approaches toward device investigation for computers and mobile devices are similar. Our highly-trained forensics investigators identify and secure all potential evidence sources and image memory and other storage media bit-by-bit for further examination in our state-of-the-art facilities. Email, logs, metadata, browser data and app documents are among the data thoroughly searched for evidence.

Additionally, our examiners explore the hidden recesses of a mobile device including protected areas of memory, files and apps. They are also adept at defeating attempts to hide data using obfuscation, encryption and file re-typing techniques as well as the use of anti-forensics malware.
