Oxygen Forensic Suite 2014 is a mobile forensic software for logical analysis of cell phones, smartphones and PDAs developed by Oxygen Software. The suite can extract device information, contacts, calendar events, SMS messages, event logs, and files. In addition, the vendor claims the suite can extract metadata related to the above. As of December 2014 the suite supported more than 8,400 devices, including Nokia, Apple iPhone series, Apple iPod Touch, Apple iPad, Vertu, Sony Ericsson, Samsung, Motorola, Blackberry, Panasonic, Siemens, HTC, HP, E-Ten, Gigabyte, i-Mate, Chinese (Mediatek) Phones and other mobile phones. The suite also supports devices running Symbian OS, Windows Mobile 5/6, Microsoft Windows Phone 8 and Android OS devices.

Forensic Soundness

The suite access devices using advanced proprietary protocols. Some devices like smartphones may require an Agent installation. Installing software onto the device being examined can be treated as an impact of the forensic soundness of the investigation. But as not much information is obtainable by other means and the impact is documented, it may still be admissible under the Best Evidence Rule.
