PDA forensics guide

PDAs are more popular than ever, with 2.75 million hand-held devices shipped in the second quarter of 2004 alone. Because criminals are among the loyal users of the devices, those who are tasked with performing forensic examinations of computers must also know how to get data off a PDA in a way that preserves evidence for a court case. A Special Publication of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has been developed to help organizations create policies and procedures for dealing with PDA forensics. The document includes information on forensic tools and proper procedures. @ Guidelines on PDA Forensics is available through SM Online.
