Embedded devices like smartphones, navigation systems and home routers are an increasingly important source of digital evidence for law enforcement. To use data from such devices as evidence in a court of law, this data must be acquired in a “sound” way, meaning that risks of accidental or intentional evidence tampering are minimized. The acquisition of such evidence, however, is impeded by the growing diversity of computing devices as well as the increasing use of cryptography and secure hardware. Because “unsound” methods in data acquisition can have dramatic real-world consequences, we believe that users, designers and manufacturers of embedded systems should be aware of the problems and prospects regarding evidence acquisition. We therefore report here on current practices in forensic data acquisition and give an overview of recent research results on the (im)possibilities to authentically acquire data from modern HDDs, SSDs, flash storage and RAM.
