The documentation and some other useful information regarding ADEL is available here.
Within the scope of the project “MobWorm”, which is funded by the BMBF, the Ruhr University, GData, Zynamics and the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg work together in the development of effective and protective measures against malicious software for mobile devices. Among the 50 project proposals submitted in accordance with the BMBF’s invitation landed “MobWorm” among the 7 best collaborative projects. I will work as a part of the University of Mannheim within this project for the next 2 years. So stay tuned for updates!
Within the scope of this diploma thesis, a tool for forensic analysis of Twister Box dumps for Nokia smartphones has been developed. The tool contains sev- eral scripts which are written in Python. The various scripts correspond to modules which are responsible for certain telephone functions (address book, SMS, call history, etc.). Those are accessed via a global script. The global script runDecoding.py accepts the Twister Box dump file, the mobile phone type and the reporting type as an argument.
After starting the tool, data processing is initiated as shown in the figure above. Here we tryed to analyze a Nokia 6500.
