'''The Sleuth Kit''' ('''TSK''') is a collection of [[UNIX]]-based command line tools that allow you to investigate a computer. The current focus of the tools is the file and volume systems and TSK supports [[FAT]], [[Ext2]]/[[Ext3|3]], [[NTFS]], [[UFS1]], and [[UFS2]] [[file system]]s.
 
 
[[Autopsy]] is a frontend for TSK which allows browser-based access to the TSK tools.
 
 
=Features=
 
 
The Sleuth Kit is arranged in layers. There is a ''data layer'' which is concerned with how information is stored on a disk and a ''metadata layer'' which is considered with information such as [[inode]]s and [[directory|directories]]. The commands that deal with the data layer are prefixed with the letter ''d'', which the commands that deal with the metadata layer are prefixed with the letter ''i''.
 
 
Some of the commands in Sleuth Kit are:
 
 
; dcat
 
: Views the contents of a [[block]].
 
 
; dls
 
: Lists [[unallocated block]]s. Makes keyword searches more efficient. Gets a list of unallocated blocks.
 
 
; dcalc
 
: Tells you where an unallocated blocks are.
 
 
; dstat
 
: Details about a given block.
 
 
; icat
 
: View contents of a file given its inode value or [[cluster number]]. Doesn't list directories, lists the contents.
 
 
; ils
 
: Lists the files extents on a disk.
 
 
; istat
 
: Information about an inode number.
