CI103 Introduction to Cell Phone Investigations

This course was funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance.

This course provides an overview of the two phases of a cell phone investigation: the preservation, extraction, and analysis of data within the phone; and the acquisition and analysis of data external to the phone (call detail records and other information). Students become familiar with several forensic tools currently in use in the field, as well as NW3C’s PerpHoundTM, a specialized tool that assists in plotting historical cell site locations. Other topics include cell phone components, cellular network components, and mobile device identification.
