This guide describes how to populate a mobile device as part of testing a mobile forensic tool. It was built to be used with Federated Testing, but can also be used to populate a device for use with other test approaches. The Federated Testing project is an expansion of the Computer Forensics Tool Testing (CFTT) Program at NIST which provides digital forensics investigators and labs with test materials for forensic tool testing. The goal of Federated Testing is to help digital forensics investigators to test the tools that they use in their labs and to enable sharing of tool test results within the digital forensics community. The goals of this guide are twofold: 1) provide guidance for how to populate (place test data on) a moble device for use in forensic tool testing and 2) provide guidance to select data elements for inclusion that ensure effective testing.
