Analytics for Social Networks on the Go

Oxygen Forensic Suite 2012 offers forensic specialists an automated toolkit quickly revealing users’ communications occurring in popular social networks. Supporting Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ networks in both Apple iOS and Android as well as Twinkle (iOS only), Oxygen Forensic Suite 2012 provides the ability to examine the device user’s friend lists, communications, photos, geo location and search history. The social network analysis tools allow studying the user’s communication circles, chats, uploaded files, and similar information.

“With social networks such as Facebook and Twitter quickly gaining in popularity, mobile communications are no longer limited to phone calls, email and text messages”, says Oleg Fedorov, Oxygen Software CEO. “With more and more mobile communication occurring outside of the usual boundaries, we feel it’s extremely important to provide forensic specialists a usable toolkit for investigating users’ activities in social networks”.

Supporting Mobile Web Browsers

More mobile Web browsers are supported in Oxygen Forensic Suite 2012. The new toolkit extracts information from three more popular Web browsers, providing forensic access to users’ bookmarks, browsing history, cookies, login credentials to certain Web sites, passwords and stored form data.

Oxygen Forensic Suite 2012 supports three additional browsers for the Android OS, adding support for Mozilla Firefox, SkyFire and Dolphin.

Analyzing Android System Logs

Oxygen Forensic Suite 2012 adds the ability to analyze the Device Logs section of Android OS devices. Android devices generate a wide range of logs, recording core and system events, and containing information about installed applications and the current state of the phone. The new tool allows viewing initialization script output recorded during the last boot, information about applications and the state of the phone, as well as accessing the internal log of the Android system.
