Abstract

© 2016 IEEE. Cyber-Attacks are on the rise due to the increased usage of social networking application's built-in Android devices via Wi-Fi connections, which has resulted in privacy issues. Several studies have been conducted to investigate Android phones, however, none of these have proposed a comprehensive Android investigation method, which begins with a Man-in-The-Middle attack and ending in a criminal investigation. The purpose of this research is to propose an Android forensics framework against such Wi-Fi attacks, using advanced forensic tools, such as the Cellebrite Universal Forensic Extraction Device and the Oxygen. This will assist the researcher to prove the suggested arguments in the following: 1. To implement guidelines for the forensic examiners, especially for those new in the field of forensics, and 2. To guide Android and social networking application developers to enhance the level of security. Furthermore, this study recommends the best data extraction methods designed for Android devices.
