Yusoff, Mohd Najwadi and Mahmod, Ramlan and Abdullah @ Selimun, Mohd Taufik and Dehghantanha, Ali (2014) Mobile forensic data acquisition in Firefox OS. In: 2014 Third International Conference on Cyber Security, Cyber Warfare and Digital Forensic (CyberSec), 29 Apr.-1 May 2014, Lebanese University Campus of Hadath, Beirut, Lebanon. (pp. 27-31).


Mozilla Corporation has recently released a Linux-based open source operating system, namely Firefox OS. The arrival of this Firefox OS has created new challenges, concentrations and opportunities for digital investigators. Currently, Firefox OS is still not fully supported by most of the existing mobile forensic tools. Even when the phone is detected as Android, only pictures from removable card was able to be captured. Furthermore, the internal data acquisition is still not working. Therefore, there are very huge opportunities to explore the Firefox OS on every stages of mobile forensic procedures. This paper will present an approach for mobile forensic data acquisition in a forensically sound manner from a Firefox OS running device. This approach will largely use the UNIX dd command to create a forensic image from the Firefox OS running device.
