O'Reilly launches "iPhone Forensics" - see what's going on in your iPhone
O'Reilly has announced its latest publication for the iPhone. "iPhone Forensics", written by well-known hacker Jonathan Zdziarski, lets anyone find out what's hiding in underneath the iPhone's bonnet, even if it's supposedly been deleted.
"Any given iPhone is likely to contain sensitive information belonging to its owner, and some types of information that may belong to others: corporate email, documents, and photos, to name a few," says Zdziarski.
"As the dark side of such a versatile device becomes more evident, so does the need to recover personal information from it."
"iPhone Forensics" helps users:
- 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."
So, if you're doing something you shouldn't be with your iPhone, you'd better hope anyone in authority who gets hold of it hasn't read this book!
