New Book Details How to Retrieve Forensic Data from an iPhone

October 08, 2008  | 

In "iPhone Forensics," Jonathan Zdziarsk supplies the knowledge necessary to conduct complete and highly specialized forensic analysis of the iPhone, iPhone 3G, and iPod Touch. Intended for lawful forensic examination of devices by corporate security officers, law enforcement personnel, and private forensic examiners, the book introduces readers to digital forensics and outlines the technical procedures needed to recover low-level data from the iPhone. Federal, state, and multinational agencies have helped to test and verify the procedures outlined in the book, and that information is now available for the private sector.

This book helps you:

    * Determine what type of data is stored on the device
    * Break v1.x and v2.x passcode-protected iPhones to gain access to the device
    * Build a custom recovery toolkit for the iPhone
    * Interrupt iPhone 3G's "secure wipe" process
    * Conduct data recovery of a v1.x and v2.x iPhone user disk partition, and preserve and recover the entire raw user disk partition
    * Recover deleted voicemail, images, email, and other personal data, using data carving techniques
    * Recover geotagged metadata from camera photos
    * Discover Google map lookups, typing cache, and other data stored on the live file system
    * Extract contact information from the iPhone's database
    * Use different recovery strategies based on case needs, and more

iPhone Forensics includes techniques used by more than 200 law enforcement agencies worldwide, and is a must-have for any corporate compliance and disaster recovery plan.

"This book is a must for anyone attempting to examine the iPhone. The level of forensic detail is excellent. If only all guides to forensics were written with this clarity." Andrew Sheldon, director of Evidence Talks, computer forensics expert.

Jonathan Zdziarski is better known as the hacker "NerveGas" in the iPhone development community. He is well known for his work in cracking the iPhone and lead the effort to port the first open source applications. Hailed on many geek news sites for his accomplishments, Jonathan is best known for the first application to illustrate and take full advantage of the major iPhone APIs:, a portable Nintendo Entertainment System emulator.
