From Apple Seeds to Apple Pie

Pattern-of-life data can provide a story about how a device and its user interact with each other. A user using their Mac or iPhone may have no idea how intimate of a picture can be extracted from the analytical data on their devices. An extremely creepy and granular picture in many cases. This data can be used in a variety of forensic investigations from criminal matters to device intrusions but may end of being a privacy nightmare if the data were to fall into the wrong hands.

This data tends to be stored in in a variety of databases and correlation of this data for analysis purposes can be difficult. Each database can hold different type of data, retain it for a different period of time, and have different storage mechanisms for its entries.

Each small seed of data can grow into a database providing delicious fruit that can be harvested to create a damn good apple pie. This presentation will show were each seed is stored, what type of apple it is, how to make the most out of it.
