Understanding Android Memory Images with Michal Rozin, R&D Application Researcher at Cellebrite
In this episode, Michal Rozin, R&D Application Researcher in the Decoding Team at Cellebrite, will talk about Android memory images and what they may contain.
Michal will discuss a proof of concept that was conducted regarding RFID and leveraging Android RAM. Topics raised during the podcast will include:
- The value to digital intelligence memory forensics can provide
- Different types of extraction methods currently being deployed.
- Insightful data that was found during the proof of concept.
She will also demonstrate a new feature used for the memory dumps and explain the difference between “Persistent Storage” that stores caches, configuration files, and logs (Figure 1 below) versus “Non-specific Storage” that stores temporary data in run-time (Figure 2 below).
Michal will start by presenting an overview of the storage mechanisms and then cover RAM and decrypted data aspects within Android memory.
