Android Forensics: Investigation, Analysis, and Mobile Security for Google Android examines the Android mobile platform and shares techniques for the forensic acquisition and subsequent analysis of Android devices. Organized into seven chapters, the book looks at the history of the Android platform and its internationalization; it discusses the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) and the Android Market; it offers a brief tutorial on Linux and Android forensics; and it explains how to create an Ubuntu-based virtual machine (VM).
The book also considers a wide array of Android-supported hardware and device types, the various Android releases, the Android software development kit (SDK), the Davlik VM, key components of Android security, and other fundamental concepts related to Android forensics, such as the Android debug bridge and the USB debugging setting. In addition, it analyzes how data are stored on an Android device and describes strategies and specific utilities that a forensic analyst or security engineer can use to analyze an acquired Android device.
Core Android developers and manufacturers, app developers, corporate security officers, and anyone with limited forensic experience will find this book extremely useful.
