Mobile Forensic has grown from a relatively obscure tradecraft to an important part of many investigations. Mobile Forensic tools are now used on a daily basis by examiners and analysts within local, state and Federal law enforcement; within the military and other US government organizations; and within the private “e-Discovery” industry. Developments in forensic research, tools, and process over the past decade have been very successful and many in leadership positions now rely on these tools on a regular basis frequently without realizing it. Moreover, there seems to be a widespread belief, buttressed on by portrayals in the popular media, that advanced tools and skilful practitioners can extract actionable information from practically any device that a government, private agency, or even a skilful individual might encounter. The field of Mobile forensic analysis is as rapidly changing as other security fields.


Mobile security when combined with mobile forensic gives rise to a term known as mobile investigation and analysis, which is nothing but a type of digital forensics which aims at the analysis of mobile device and data of a system for collection of information pertaining to the legal evidences related to various security breaches and intrusion detection. The mobile network investigations that are performed by it utilize the dynamic information characteristic of a system which changes rapidly with time; hence it is a crucial task.

The two major tasks that are performed by it include:
• Keeping a check over anomalous traffic
• Intrusion detection

The intruder tries to steal the significant information from the communication that takes place in the mobile network. Mobile forensic analysis deals with identifying all such vulnerable operation along with the legal law enforcement that will be triggered after that. Example: analyzing the chat sessions. Several tools are available for performing mobile forensics like Wireshark. Another category of mobile forensic is mobile data analysis which deals with the Android and iOS and its applications. The use of malware analysis plays a crucial role in this.
