D7.3 “Updated plan and initial report on dissemination and communication activities”

This deliverable includes information on the dissemination, communication and exploitation activities, as well as on internal and external training activities of the EXFILES project. It is the first report on the communication and dissemination activities of the first 18 project months. It thus contains relevant information about all executed activities up to M18, as well as an updated plan of future activities. The deliverable will be updated and finalized within “D7.6 Final report on dissemination & communication activities” at the project end.

D2.1 “Fundamental support study on Encryption and Fundamental Rights”

This deliverable is the first legal analysis of the EXFILES project. It is the result of the study of numerous national and European documents from various sources – institutional, academic, legal, technical, law enforcement, and NGO – as well as contributions from the project partners on the legal framework applicable in their country. It assesses the legal and soft-law provisions regarding fundamental rights and the use of encryption, in the context of collection of evidence from encrypted devices.

D1.1 “State of the art in mobile forensics”

In the current smartphone market, Android and iOS are the dominant operating systems where Samsung, Huawei and Apple are the major smartphone developers, all using state-of-the-art ARM based chip technology. Traditional data acquisition methods are less effective against modern smartphones, without proper user authentication, due to strong cryptographic security mechanisms at the operating system level. Future forensic techniques need to focus on the exploitation of hardware and software vulnerabilities to escalate privileges to the level where an examiner can directly acquire decrypted user data from a running device, or extract key material that can be used to decrypt extracted user data afterwards. This results in new business models for forensic tools vendors but also raises legal issues related to network based data acquisition and responsible disclosure.
