Abstract [en]

This research presents two developed approaches for the forensic acquisition of an Amazon Kindle Fire HD. It describes the forensic acquisition and analysis of the Amazon Kindle Fire HD device. Two developed methods of acquisition are presented; one requiring a special cable to reflash the boot partition of the device with a forensic acquisition environment (Method A), and the other exploiting a vulnerability in the device’s Android operating system (Method B). A case study is then presented showing the various digital evidence that can be extracted from the device. The results indicate that Method A is more favorable because it utilizes a general methodology that does not exploit a vulnerability that could potentially be patched by Amazon in future software updates.
