Investigation USIM EFs and Service Table

There has been so much going on over the past year and with research and testing I haven't posted as much as I would like. The growth areas in the variety of methods and tools for logical data and physical data extraction, harvesting and examination; impact that apps and malware might have on evidence; wireless options available on smartphones and tablets changing the way traditional cell site analysis can be conducted; and the generally the explosion in mobile information and standards needing to be absorbed and understood has been mind-blowing to say the least. These and other matters have consumed my time and the casualty has been fewer posts at the blog. However, from all the work and research I will endeavour to post here, hopefully, useful examination and investigative information on areas that may have either become outdated or evolved such that particular methods applied or tools used could be out-of-date or updated.

USIM (UICC) Cards memory storage and network/user files have seen a massive increase since 2010. Just have a look back at a post in 2010 I made here at trewmte.blogspot and compare the EFUST (elementary files usim service table) in TS 31.102 back then 3g-usim-2g-sim-service-numbers.html compared to the latest releases 12 ( 31_series/31.102/ ) and 13 ( 31.102/ )

The first thing an examiner might wish do first thing in the morning at work is check whether the USIM reader tool is up-to-date. Have a look at the EFUST list and list of elementary files below and check that your reader has the capability to detect, extract and harvest data from these files. Then ask yourself do you actually understand when they are allocated and activated in a USIM what use is made of them? What evidence maybe harvested from them? How would the acquired data assist investigations in the following categories as they would apply to the use of mobile communications?

i)                    Contract Law

ii)                  Tort Law

iii)                Intellectual Property Law

iv)                Criminal (including the new Cybercrime) Law

v)                  Data Protection Law

vi)                Taxation Law

vii)              Computer Law

viii)            Communications Law

ix)                Internet Law

x)                  Etc.

Particular note: when looking at the EFUST service list above this should not be taken as all the services that may be allocated and activated on modules in a UICC. GSM EFSST (sim service table) has particular services unique to GSM SIM (GSM 11.11), such as Service n°29: Proactive SIM which does not appear in the EFUST list. And if Service n°29: Proactive SIM is important to an investigation (and it can be) it is worth the reminder to look at GSM 11.14 (sim application toolkit) that adds services and most importantly "capabilities" between SIM and smartphone. Perhaps you might think, such as, how this can assist an investigation? My responses is consider (a) man-in-the-middle attacks (b) crime (c) cybercrime.

There has been an abundance in the growth of elementary files, too, in USIM Releases 12/13. The increase in access to varying networks by smartphones and tablets has meant the technical, privacy, commercial and monetisation influences how a subscriber latches and attaches to networks. The relevance being recovered message data for instance requires understanding and identifying how the data got there via which particular network access point etc.
