Cellebrite’s Universal Forensics Extraction Device
(UFED) is a hardware-based platform that supports
extraction of data from more than 4,000 phones and
devices. The hardware is available in both standard
and ruggedized versions. The ruggedized version is
designed for field use by military, law enforcement and
devices are supported prior to retail launch.
Product Description
The following information is from the UFED manual:

devices.
Product Information
The following information is from Cellebrite’s website:
The Cellebrite UFED forensics system is the ultimate
standalone mobile forensic device, ready for use out
in the field or in the lab.
The UFED system extracts vital information from 95
percent of all cellular phones on the market today,
including smartphones and PDA devices (Palm OS,
Microsoft, Blackberry, Symbian, iPhone and Google
Android). Simple to use even in the field, with no
PC required, the UFED can easily store hundreds of
phonebooks and content items onto an SD card or
USB flash drive.
Cellebrite UFED supports all known cellular device interfaces, including serial, USB, infrared and
Bluetooth. Extractions can then be brought back to
UFED extracts vital data such as phonebook, camera pictures, videos, audio, text messages (SMS),
call logs, ESN IMEI, ICCID and IMSI information
from over 1,600 handset models, including Symbian, Microsoft Mobile, Blackberry and Palm OS
devices.
Cellebrite UFED enables SIM ID cloning, allowing
you to extract phone data while preventing the cellular device from connecting to the network.
The UFED can extract data from a phone, or directly
from the SIM card. When extracting from a phone,
the UFED connects to the phone via cable, Bluetooth or infrared, and the data is read logically from
the phone. It also performs a physical extraction
from SIM cards, allowing extraction of additional
data such as deleted SMS, ICCID, IMSI, location
information and more.
Data is copied to any standard USB flash drive or
SD card and is then organized into clear and concise reports.

Overview
Data can also be copied directly to a computer via
the UFED Physical Analyzer interface, as is indicated
in the Test Bed Configuration section on page 5.
Cellebrite’s industry expertise provides reliability
and ease-of-use, and ensures the broadest support
for handset varieties, including updates for newly
released models even before they are available in
the market.
Portable and easy to operate, the UFED can be

4. The UFED will ask for the connection method to
be used for the extraction.
The UFED hardware device initiates a connec-
tion to a mobile device to extract information. For each
of the tests below, the following general steps were
followed for data extraction:
1. When starting the device, a screen is presented to
select the type of extraction.
5. Next, the target for the extraction results will be
selected. Extraction to the USB device or SD card
will create a report in HTML and PDF formats on
the target media. Extraction to the PC will export

pane of the interface is the top icon bar that provides
quick access to common features of the tool.
8. At this point, if exporting to USB or SD devices,
the UFED will request that the target drive is connected. If using a PC connection, the UFED will
request that the read icon in the PC application is
clicked. A progress window is displayed.
Following the extraction of a device with a target destination of PC, the interface displays the Report tab to
the user. The report can also be exported from Report
Manager in several different formats. Useful information can be added to the report through the Report
Details menu, which is accessed with the top icon bar
or through the application’s menu items.
9. Upon completion, the UFED displayed a
confirmation screen.
If an SD card or USB drive was used to store the
results of the acquisition, the reports can be viewed
by connecting the external media to a PC. If the
target of the acquisition was a PC, the acquisition can
be further analyzed by using one of the two pieces
of software. Analysis of logical extractions can be
performed using UFED’s Report Manager. File system
or physical memory extractions can be analyzed with
UFED’s Physical Analyzer.

Images discovered on the device can be displayed
and exported by selecting ‘Images’ from the left pane.
The application allows the user to search through
contacts, SMS and calendar events. Name or phone

The second piece of software supporting the UFED
is the Physical Analyzer. Physical Analyzer takes the
input from the UFED device of a physical or file system
dump. The interface is the same for both types of
extractions, but the amount of information will vary.

Bookmarked data is highlighted in red by default. The
bookmarks tab displays a list and provides the capability to organize the bookmarks. Bookmarks can be
rearranged or deleted. Data cannot be browsed within
the bookmarks tab. The search tool can be used to
find particular information.
Much like the Report Manager, Physical Analyzer has
the capability to display data files such as images,
videos, audio and text. These are also related to the
file system where possible.
The results of the search are presented in a list and
highlighted.
Physical Analyzer allows the user to traverse the file
system and view with a familiar tree structure.
Once all of the information has been processed and
reviewed, a report can be generated in several formats.
Reports can be customized using the application’s settings to edit field names or add new fields to the report.
These reports can also be customized with formatted
