Overview

It is no secret iOS devices can track users every move providing location data that can be a major factor in many types of investigations. This valuable information can be found in a variety of areas on the iOS device. In this webcast, we will walk you through native iOS databases, plist files and 3rd party applications where this information is kept and tracked. We will also introduce you to scripts created to make data analysis easier by allowing you to do fast data correlation and build historical map of locations.




Location information can really be found everywhere and in many different contexts on iOS devices. This webcast uncovers how this location data can be a major factor in many types of forensic investigations.

This topic is just one of the many important subjects covered in our SANS FOR518, Mac Forensics Analysis course. If you are looking for opportunities to take this course, please join Sarah at SANS CDI!
