Plaso (plaso langar að safna öllu) is the Python based back-end engine used by tools such as log2timeline for automatic creation of a super timelines. The goal of log2timeline (and thus plaso) is to provide a single tool that can parse various log files and forensic artifacts from computers and related systems, such as network equipment to produce a single correlated timeline. This timeline can then be easily analysed by forensic investigators/analysts, speeding up investigations by correlating the vast amount of information found on an average computer system. Plaso is intended to be applied for creating super timelines but also supports creating [http://blog.kiddaland.net/2013/02/targeted-timelines-part-i.html targeted timelines].
As of Java version 6 the Java WebStart Cache can be found in the following locations.

+
For the example above the size of the URL string can be found at offset 130 (0x82). The first 4 string values to extract from this data are prefaced with their lengths (or sizes) as 16-bit big-endian values. E.g. to retrieve the original URL string, read the WORD at offset 0x82, and translate it as a big-endian value (e.g. using Perl, <i>unpack("n",$data)</i>). Beginning at offset 0x84, the string is 57 (0x39) bytes long. At the end of that string, the next WORD is the length of the third string, also in big-endian format.
+
 
+
Once you've completed reading the initial 4 strings, there is a DWORD value which can be interpreted as the number of header values, followed by the individual header value definitions. Each header value definition consists of an identifier and a value string. Both strings are prefaced by a 16-bit big-endian (2-byte) value, containing the length of the string.
+
 
+
In many cases, the first header value contains the HTTP Response code of 302. Other header values (that have been observed so far) include a response of 200, as well as additional data (including time stamps), and the *.idx files themselves appear to contain certificate (and perhaps other) information.

Plaso (plaso langar að safna öllu) is the Python based back-end engine used by tools such as log2timeline for automatic creation of a super timelines. The goal of log2timeline (and thus plaso) is to provide a single tool that can parse various log files and forensic artifacts from computers and related systems, such as network equipment to produce a single correlated timeline. This timeline can then be easily analysed by forensic investigators/analysts, speeding up investigations by correlating the vast amount of information found on an average computer system. Plaso is intended to be applied for creating super timelines but also supports creating targeted timelines.

The Plaso project site also provides 4n6time, formerly "l2t_Review", which is a cross-platform forensic tool for timeline creation and review by David Nides.
