== Overview ==
+
'''Snorkel''' is a Java software library that is used by developers of forensic software. Snorkel is not a standalone forensic application, but it is an important piece of infrastructure that can be used by many forensic applications: Snorkel gives access to digital evidence files, file systems, files, slack space, unallocated clusters, etc. This type of access is a key enabler in the development of forensic software systems, ranging from single-purpose stand-alone tools to integrated forensic processing systems.
  
'''Chaosreader''' A freeware tool to trace TCP/UDP/... sessions and fetch application data from snoop or tcpdump logs. This is a type of "any-snarf" program, as it will fetch telnet sessions, FTP files, HTTP transfers (HTML, GIF, JPEG, ...), SMTP emails, ... from the captured data inside network traffic logs. A html index file is created that links to all the session details, including realtime replay programs for telnet, rlogin, IRC, X11 and VNC sessions; and reports such as image reports and HTTP GET/POST content reports. Chaosreader can also run in standalone mode - where it invokes tcpdump or snoop (if they are available) to create the log files and then processes them.
