Forensic Analysis Of Whatsapp On Android Smartphones, Neha S. Thakur Aug 2013

Forensic Analysis Of Whatsapp On Android Smartphones, Neha S. Thakur

University of New Orleans Theses and Dissertations

Android forensics has evolved over time offering significant opportunities and exciting challenges. On one hand, being an open source platform Android is giving developers the freedom to contribute to the rapid growth of the Android market whereas on the other hand Android users may not be aware of the security and privacy implications of installing these applications on their phones. Users may assume that a password-locked device protects their personal information, but applications may retain private information on devices, in ways that users might not anticipate. In this thesis we will be concentrating on one such application called 'WhatsApp', a ...


Bluelock: A Secure Bluetooth Operated Padlock, Trever Mckee Jun 2013

Bluelock: A Secure Bluetooth Operated Padlock, Trever Mckee

Computer Engineering

For this project a secure, battery operated, Bluetooth operated padlock was created. The project included both the hardware to integrate with a padlock and an Android application used to interface with the hardware. In order to make the padlock secure both AES encryption and challenge response authentication were used for secure message passing between the device and the Android phone. The project also included power consumption and sustainability tuning including exploring Arduino sleep states and integrating the project with a solar charging unit.


Human Powered Vehicle Bike Computer, Eric Yaklin, Bradley Shellnut Jun 2013

Human Powered Vehicle Bike Computer, Eric Yaklin, Bradley Shellnut

Computer Engineering

This project is a bike computer system built for Cal Poly’s Human Powered Vehicle Team. It was designed and built using Arduino and Android programming tools. The project consists of an Arduino Uno used to collect bike data (such as speed, temperature and GPS location) and an Android Application used to display this data in real time and save it to user profiles within the application. Although many bike computers already exist, this project was specifically designed to be used in a team racing environment rather than for individual use.

Droidspotter: A Forensic Tool For Android Location Data Collection And Analysis, Jeffrey Alan Kramer Jan 2013

Droidspotter: A Forensic Tool For Android Location Data Collection And Analysis, Jeffrey Alan Kramer

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Since the surge in popularity of Android smartphones, creating Android applications and using location data in these applications have soared. Due to how quickly Android applications are being created, it is difficult for companies who have created forensics tools to keep updating their programs in a timely manner for investigators to use. This has created a need for a forensics tool which allows forensic investigators to analyze a new Android application themselves since, in most cases, criminal investigations are a time sensitive matter. The purpose of this research is to introduce a prototype for a tool which would allow investigators ...
