Step 1: Mobile Technology Overview
You're ready to begin writing your White Paper. The Sheriff has stated that the first section should be an overview of how cellular networks operate. You decide to tackle the topics of how mobile phones communicate with cell sites, cellular to cellular communication, mobile switching centers, and the base switching subsystem. You also want to cover the technology of mobile networks, including form factors, smart devices, and other wireless technologies.
Submit the results of your research (3-5 pages) to the Sheriff (your instructor) for review and ungraded feedback. Incorporate any suggested changes. Your overview will serve as the introduction to the 13-21 page White Paper that you submit upon completion of this project (Step 6).
Step 2: Trends in Mobile Technology
With the overview drafted, you now need to describe trends in mobile technology. For this step, you decide to address handset transmission types and mobile operating systems, as well as challenges and threats represented by mobile technology. The "Trends" section would not be complete without addressing the latest in embedded device forensics. Once you have developed the trends in mobile technology section, you are ready to move on to considerations for the forensic handling of mobile devices.
Review this 3-5 page section of your paper for accuracy and completeness; it will serve as the second section of your final White Paper (Step 6).
Step 3: Laws, Regulations, and the Forensic Handling of Mobile Devices
After detailing trends in mobile technology, your next step is to discuss laws and regulations governing the search and seizure of mobile devices, as well as the mobile device forensics process, including considerations for handling, investigative techniques, mobile forensic tools, and location of evidence. These subjects are important because mobile devices present unique challenges when it comes to handling and analysis, and court cases are won or lost based on the arresting officer’s understanding of legal technicalities. Upon completion of this section, you will be ready to move on to the next section of your paper: forensic tools and investigative techniques.
Review this 3-5 page section of your paper for accuracy and completeness; it will serve as the third section of your final White Paper (Step 6).
Step 4: Analysis and Presentation of Forensic Information
You have discussed your research on laws, regulations, and forensic handling. You are now ready to create the fourth section of your White Paper where you describe the analysis and presentation of forensic information. Based on your training, you know you will need to include file system analysis,techniques for working through security measures , and third-party applications in this section. In addition, you will address data carving, file system, and compound file analysis and the presentation of a case report.
Review this 3-5 page section of your paper for accuracy and completeness; it will serve as the fourth section of your final White Paper (Step 6).
You are ready to move on to a final, less-objective summary of your research on the evolving field of mobile forensics.
Step 5: Biggest threat, most promising technology in mobile forensics
In the previous four steps you have reported on a variety of topics relating to mobile forensics. You have read and reported on technologies, trends, laws and regulations, handling, and analysis of mobile data. For the final section of your paper, the Sheriff has asked for your own personal perspective on the biggest threat posed by cyber-criminals using mobile technology in the coming years, and a technology that shows promises a solution. Reflect on your in-class and outside readings, as well as your personal and professional experience, to respond to these questions. There are no right or wrong answers, but please provide references for your observations. You will be attaching this 1-page section to the White Paper that you submit in the final step of this project.
Step 6: Submit Completed White Paper: Mobile Incident Response and Investigations
You have collected the information needed to inform your department's future decisions regarding mobile forensics. In this step, you will combine the five sections that you’ve written into a single, cohesive White Paper. Your 13-21 page paper should be double-spaced, excluding images and references. Please use 12-point font and APA format. Submit your paper to TurnItIn prior to submission.
Include the following five sections:
1) Overview of mobile technology, including network operations and mobile technologies
2) Description of trends in mobile technology, including handset transmission types and embedded device forensics, as well as operating systems, applications, and challenges and threats to forensic investigations
3) Laws, regulations, and considerations for the forensic handling of mobile devices
4) Analysis and presentation of forensic information including file system analysis, techniques for working through security measures, third-party applications, and other forms of mobile data analysis
5) Personal perspective on the greatest biggest threat and greatest opportunitymost promising technology in mobile forensics, based on in-class and outside readings, as well as personal/professional experience
Upon completion of Steps 1-5, submit your 13-21 page, completed White Paper on Mobile Incident Response and Investigations to the Sheriff (your instructor) for evaluation.
Before you submit your assignment, review the competencies below, which your instructor will use to evaluate your work. A good practice would be to use each competency as a self-check to confirm you have incorporated all of them in your work.
