Digital Forensics Training

TEEL In-System Programming (ISP) For Mobile Device Forensics

During this five-day training, investigators learn how to carry out extractions using so-called In-System Programming (ISP). This method enables you to gain direct access to the eMMC memory of a mobile device. eMMC is the most common type of memory that's applied to chips of current smartphones. During the ISP process, the chip doesn't have to be removed, leaving the original evidence intact.

At the beginning of the training, the trainees are handed a number of phones to practise chip-off extractions on, to learn about back-tracing and connection points and to carry out data-extractions.

For whom is this training intended?
This ISP training is intended for investigators that are experienced in chip-off and soldering techniques and want to broaden their knowledge regarding analysis of mobile devices.

What will you learn during the training?
At the end of this five-day training, trainees are able to carry out ISP extractions independently and compare the results of the different extractions. Although a basic knowledge of soldering PCBs is assumed, there'll be plenty of practice in soldering resistors and capacitors on and off the circuit board.
