  Annotation: This report presents the results from testing of the mobile device acquisition tool, iXAM, version 1.5.6, a tool utilized in computer forensic investigations.
  Abstract: The results of the tested tool, the iXAM, version 1.5.6, acquired all supported data objects completely and accurately from the selected test mobile (i.e., iPhone 3G) with no anomalies found. These test results provide the information necessary for developers to improve tools, users to make informed choices, and the legal community and others to understand the computer forensic tool’s capabilities. 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 the Information Technology Laboratory (ITL). The objective of the CFTT program is to provide measurable assurance that the tools used in computer forensics investigations provide accurate results. This report presents the results from testing iXAM, version 1.5.6 against the Smart Phone Tool Test Assertions and Test Plan. The report is divided into five sections with the first section providing a summary of the results from the test runs and the remaining sections describing how the tests were conducted and providing documentation of test case run details that support the report summary.
