Description

Learn to pull “digital fingerprints” from alternate data storage (ADS) devices including: iPod, Xbox, digital cameras and more from the cyber sleuths who train the Secret Service, FBI, and Department of Defense in bleeding edge digital forensics techniques. This book sets a new forensic methodology standard for investigators to use. This book begins by describing how alternate data storage devices are used to both move and hide data. From here a series of case studies using bleeding edge forensic analysis tools demonstrate to readers how to perform forensic investigations on a variety of ADS devices including: Apple iPods, Digital Video Recorders, Cameras, Gaming Consoles (Xbox, PS2, and PSP), Bluetooth devices, and more using state of the art tools. Finally, the book takes a look into the future at “not yet every day” devices which will soon be common repositories for hiding and moving data for both legitimate and illegitimate purposes.
