"This document reports the results from testing Zdziarski's Method against the 'Smart Phone Tool Test Assertions and Test Plan.' [...] The Computer Forensics Tool Testing (CFTT) program is a joint project of the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), the department of Homeland Security (DHS), and the National Institute of Standards and Technology Office of Law Enforcement Standards (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, U.S. Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation Division Electronic Crimes Program, and 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 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. [...] This report is divided into five sections. The first section is a summary of the results from the test runs. This section is sufficient for most readers to assess the suitability of the tool for the intended use. The remaining sections of the report describe how the tests were conducted and provide documentation of test case run details that support the report summary. Sections 2 and 3 provide justification for the selection of test cases and assertions from the set of possible cases defined in the test plan for smart phone forensic tools. The test cases are selected, in general, based on features offered by the tool. Section 4 lists the hardware and software used to run the test cases. Section 5 contains a description of each test case, test assertions used in the test case, the expected result and the actual result."
