time for WhatsApp forensics with R and SQLite

It's the end of April 2016.
Spring is in the Netherlands (still some wet snow, but who cares)

Time for some adventures in computer forensics.
This time I want to combine R and mobile forensics.

And what's the best app for that: WhatsApp !

Hm, but how to get data from WhatsApp into R.
Well, WhatsApp uses SQLite to store its data.
SQLite is an open source, embedded relational database and via R you can examine the data in the SQLite database used in WhatsApp at your mobile phone.

So, follow this week the  #RWhatsApp on the TestingSaaS social network for my deepdive into WhatsApp forensics with R and SQLite.
Feedback is always welcome.

Trust me, it's going to be a fun week!
