Chip-Off essentials

The Chip Off advanced extractions from Mobile Phones is an essential skill for Forensic Examiners. Increased device security and file protection are making standard extraction methods more and more difficult. In this course, students will learn Chip-Off Extraction Techniques utilizing the heat method. You will also learn how to re-ball a chip, soldering techniques, data structures on a NAND and NOR chips, how to utilize RIFF and ORT boxes and multiple forensic software solutions that interpret the raw data dumps.

PREREQUISITES

To obtain the most from this course, you should meet the following requirements:

  • Able to understand course material presented in English language.
  • Perform basic computer operations.
  • Have basic knowledge of digital forensics.
  • Have basic understanding of Microsoft Windows environment.
