The '''Autopsy Forensic Browser''' ('''Autopsy''') is a graphical interface to the command line digital investigation analysis tools in [[The Sleuth Kit]]. Together, they can analyze [[Windows]] and [[UNIX]] disks and [[file systems]] ([[NTFS]], [[FAT]], [[UFS1]]/[[UFS2]], [[Ext2]]/[[Ext3]]).
 
  
The [[Sleuthkit]] and Autopsy are both Open Source and run on UNIX platforms. As Autopsy is [[HTML]]-based, you can connect to the Autopsy server from any platform using a web browser. Autopsy provides a "File Manager"-like interface and shows details about deleted data and file system structures.

THE FARMER'S BOOT CD (FBCD) is a unique Linux boot CD. Taking a different approach than other Live CDs, this CD was designed and optimized for previewing systems before acquiring. THE FARMER'S BOOT CD contains a number of programs forensic practitioners can utilize to preview both Windows and Linux systems in a forensically sound manner. Developed by Thomas Rude ('farmerdude').
