Finally, it will focus on teaching readers how to apply actual forensic techniques to recover data.

Android is now the world’s most popular mobile device platform and still growing at an astonishing rate. Android Forensics: Investigation, Analysis and Mobile Security for Google Android provides a thorough review of the Android platform, including the core hardware and software components, file systems and data structures, data security considerations, a detailed review of forensic acquisition techniques and strategies for the subsequent analysis required. A heavy emphasis on open source tools and step-by-step examples are a primary focus on this book.
