iVe – Vehicle System Forensics

iVe is a digital forensics tool that can perform logical and physical acquisitions and analysis of a vehicle’s infotainment and telematics systems.

Infotainment and Vehicle System Forensics

iVe (ˈīvē) is a vehicle system forensic tool that acquires user data from vehicles, and allows forensic examiners and investigators a means to quickly and intuitively analyze it. Vehicle infotainment and telematics systems store a vast amount of data such as recent destinations, favorite locations, call logs, contact lists, SMS messages, emails, pictures, videos, social media feeds, and the navigation history of everywhere the vehicle has been. Many systems record events such as when and where a vehicle’s lights are turned on, which doors are opened and closed at specific locations, and even where the vehicle is when Bluetooth devices connect.
