iNcriminating iPhone

Mercury News has reported that “Police say IPhones can store a treasure trove of incriminating evidence.” 

This is essentially about law enforcement agencies giving gainful employment to Jonathan Zdziarski to teach them about recovering evidence from IoS devices, and could be summarized as “if you use a computer, the police could use digital forensics to gather evidence against you, and the iPhone is also a computer.” However, Amber Hunt does suggest that the iPhone is easier to harvest than Blackberry or Droid devices. Be that as it may, it’s interesting to see the range of information the boys in blue might be able to pull from a smartphone.

Slashdot has also touched on the story, and you might also want to check out Zdziarski’s book “iPhone Forensics: Recovering Evidence, Personal Data, and Corporate Assets“.
