'''CAINE Live CD''' (Computer Aided Investigative Environment) is a forensic [[Live CD]] built on top of Ubuntu.

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].
== CAINE 1.5 ==
+
As of December 2009, the current version of [http://www.caine-live.net/ Caine] is 1.5. According to documentation, it is based on [http://releases.ubuntu.com/8.04/ Ubuntu 8.04]. Unlike the [[Helix]] project, Caine is free, freely redistributable, and open-source. CAINE 1.5 supports the Oxford 934dsb SATA chipset, used in (among other devices) the Voyager Q SATA dock from Newer Technologies.

* '''CAINE Live CD version 1.0 introduced new mounting policies''':
+
  
- The mounting policy for any internal or external devices adopted by CAINE: never mount automatically any device and when the user clicks on the device icon the system will mount it in read-only mode on a read-only loopback device.
+
=== Storage Media Image File Formats ===
 +
Storage Medis Image File Format support is provided by [[dfvfs]].
  
- If a user decides to mount a device via terminal, he can use the “mount” command but all the mount options must be specified.
+
=== Volume System Formats ===
 +
Volume System Format support is provided by [[dfvfs]].
  
- The ext3 driver will be ignored when ext3 file systems are mounted and the ext2 driver used instead. This protects any ext3 file systems from a forensic point-of-view. Ext2 does not use journaling, so when an ext3 file system is mounted, there is no danger of modifying the journal metadata.
+
=== File System Formats ===
 +
File System Format support is provided by [[dfvfs]].
  
- By applying a special patch CAINE team fixed the bug that changed the journal of the ext3 file systems when the computer was switched off by pulling the plug.

- Fixed in the fstab: forbidding the auto-mounting of the MMCs and put a control for the "exotic names" like /dev/sdad1.

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.
