'''ILook''' is an all-in-one [[computer forensics]] suite currently maintained by the [[Internal Revenue Service]] ([[IRS]]). It is available free of charge to law enforcement agencies and certain US government agencies. iLook is not available to the general public.

ILooK was the digital forensic analysis tool used in the investigation of the 9/11 attacks. Originally available only for law enforcement, the application is now being supported by XtremeForensics who have released ILooKIX v10 for commercial use in two versions, Standard and Advanced.
  
The suite consists of the [[ILook External Imager]] ([[IXimager]]), an analysis program, and a few utilities. IXimager is a Linux-based custom boot CD that produces forensically authenticatable compressed output. The imager is generated from a licensed copy of iLook. Version 8 is the currently distributed version of iLook.
