The five-day vehicle forensics class provides examiners with a complete education into how to obtain data from automobiles using advanced techniques, such as chip-off and ISP. The class teaches examiners the proper techniques for chip removal and reading, as well as using ISP techniques to recover valuable data from automobile infotainment systems.
The five (5) day course covers the vast amount of data that can be recovered from vehicles and how it can be applicable to your case or investigation. The curriculum is a mix of instructor lectures, demonstrations, and several student practical’s. This course was designed to maximize the student experience with applicable hands-on exercises, including the removal of memory chips from circuit boards and performing the non-destructive in-system programming to recover data for decoding.
Our goal is to maximize your experience by providing you with hands-on exercises that include:
The removal of memory chips from circuit boards and performing the non-destructive In-System Programming (ISP) to recover data for decoding
Demonstrating Chip-Off data acquisition techniques for vehicles and systems that may have been damaged due to collision, fire, or water damage
Attendees will be instructed on the following:
Overview of data stored in vehicles
Common OEM and aftermarket navigation and infotainment systems, as well as electronic control units
Flash memory and its characteristics, identification of flash memory, and researching support for data extractions
Best practice methods and proper use of workbench gear and equipment to increase student proficiency
ISP/ Direct eMMC as a non-destructive advanced data extraction method
Chip Off as a destructive advanced data extraction method
Various hardware and software including Medusa Pro II, UP828P, ATOLA, PC-3000, and more
Automated data decoding using the industry standard for vehicle forensics
Introduction of software applications to assist examiners with manual decoding of data for unsupported memory chips, file systems, files and unallocated data
Who Should Attend:
Digital Forensic Examiners, Automobile Theft Detectives, Crash Investigators
Individuals and teams looking to learn the skills required to recover and analyze data from automobile navigation and infotainment systems
Individuals and teams looking to gain the hands-on skills to remove chips from boards, as well as solder to perform ISP and other extraction methods
