Abstract

With the rapid evolution of the smartphone industry, mobile device forensics has become essential in cybercrime investigation. Currently, evidence forensically-retrieved from a mobile device is in the form of call logs, contacts, and SMSs; a mobile forensic investigator should also be aware of the vast amount of user data and network information that are stored in the mobile SIM card such as ICCID, IMSI, and ADN. The aim of this study is to test various forensic tools to effectively gather critical evidence stored on the SIM card. In the first set of experiments, we compare the selected forensic tools in terms of retrieving specific data; in the second set, genuine user data from eight different SIM cards is extracted and analyzed. The experimental results on a real-life dataset support the effectiveness of the SIM card forensics approach presented in this paper.
