Forensic Protocol Filtering of Phone Managers



Wayne Jansen, Aurelien M. Delaitre


Phone managers are non-forensic tools sometimes used by forensic investigators to recover data from a cell phone when no suitable forensic tool is available for the device. While precautions can be taken to preserve the integrity of data on a cell phone, inherent risks exist. Applying a forensic filter to phone manager exchanges with a device is suggested as a safer alternative that could be pursued as a solution to reduce risk.
