There are many tools available to the examiner when it comes to digital forensics. In most instances, however, the situation or circumstance dictates which tool might be your choice when it comes to performing a cogent analysis, especially when it comes to whether or not it is a computer (Windows, Mac, or LINUX) or a mobile device (Android or iOS). For computers, the examiner has many choices (EnCase, Blacklight, Macquisition, FTK, X-Ways, Magnet Axiom, Autopsy, etc.). For mobile devices, the examiner can use many tools as well (Cellebrite, Magnet Axiom, EnCase, etc.).
1. Compare and contrast tools (your choice) for various operating systems.
2. Remark about their strengths and weaknesses.
3. Which appears to be superior and why?
