dfVFS, or Digital Forensics Virtual File System, provides read-only access to file-system objects from various storage media types and file formats. The goal of dfVFS is to provide a generic interface for accessing file-system objects, for which it uses several back-ends that provide the actual implementation of the various storage media types, volume systems and file systems.

dfVFS is currently implemented as a Python module.

dfVFS originates from the Plaso project. It was largely rewritten and made into a stand-alone project to provide more flexibility and allow other projects to make use of the VFS functionality. dfVFS originally was named PyVFS, but that name conflicted with another project.
