The Computer Forensics Tool Testing (CFTT) program is a joint project of the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate (DHS S&T), and the National Institute of Standards and Technology Law Enforcement Standards Office (OLES) and Information Technology Laboratory (ITL). CFTT is supported by other organizations, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. Department of Defense Cyber Crime Center, the U.S. Internal Revenue Service
Criminal Investigation Division Electronic Crimes Program, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, U.S. Customs and Border Protection and U.S. Secret Service, the Naval Postgraduate School, the National White Collar Crime Center, the Commody Future Trading Commission, the U.S. Postal Service, and the Securities and Exchange Commission. The objective of the CFTT program is to provide measurable assurance to practitioners, researchers, and other applicable users that the tools used in computer forensics investigations provide accurate results. Accomplishing this requires the development of specifications and test methods
for computer forensics tools and subsequent testing of specific tools against those specifications.
Test results provide the information necessary for developers to improve tools, for users to make informed choices, and for the legal community and others to understand the tools’ capabilities. The CFTT approach to testing computer forensic tools is based on well-recognized methodologies for conformance and quality testing. The specifications and test methods posted on the CFTT Web site (http://www.cftt.nist.gov/) are available for review and comment by the computer forensics community.
This document reports the results from testing Secure View version 3.8.0 against the Smart Phone Tool Test Assertions and Test Plan, available at the CFTT Web site (www.cftt.nist.gov/mobile_devices.htm).
