FCCU GNU/Linux Forensic Bootable CD is a bootable CD based on Debian-live that contains a lot of tools suitable for computer forensic investigations, including bash scripts. Its main purpose is to create images of devices prior to analysis, and it is used by the Belgian Federal Computer Crime Unit.
The RegLookup project is devoted to direct analysis of Windows NT-based registry files. RegLookup provides command line tools, a C API, and a Python module for accessing registry data structures. The project has a focus on providing tools for digital forensic examiners (though it is useful for many purposes), and includes algorithms for retrieving deleted data structures from registry hives.
The Karmasphere DP language is a high-performance non-blocking parallel language for performing data processing. It is designed to give the user a high degree of control over the usage of system resources, such as how many CPU cores or how much disk I/O time to use, without requiring the software developer to explicitly consider these issues in code. The implementation is a stand-alone library that can be used in any Java 1.5 environment. It can take full advantage of multiprocessor (SMP or NUMA) systems, and may be scaled sideways: since the interpreter and environment are stateless, an entire cluster of machines may run the interpreter in parallel without any need for synchronization.
Lynis is an auditing tool for Unix (specialists). It scans systems to detect software and security issues. Besides security-related information, it will also scan for general system information, installed packages, and possible configuration mistakes. The software is aimed at assisting automated auditing, software patch management, and vulnerability and malware scanning of Unix-based systems.
check_websites is a very simple virus scanner for Web sites. It checks a document root directory for files with the .js extension and for codewords which might be a hint of defacement or SQL injection. This tool is made to run as a cronjob. There's no output on the screen, but it generates a logfile and mails output.
Picviz is a parallel coordinates plotter which enables easy scripting from various types of input (such as tcpdump, syslog, iptables logs, or Apache logs) to visualize your data and discover interesting results quickly. Its primary goal is to graph data in order to be able to quickly analyze problems and find correlations among variables. With security analysis in mind, the program has been designed to be very flexible, able to graph millions of events.
AirSAM is a desktop GUI that compliments the Web based Snort Alert Monitor. AirSAM gives up to date insight into who might be attacking your network. The ultimate goal is to give audio/visual cues right at the time of the attack. AirSAM is an Adobe Air application and should run on Mac OS, Linux, and Windows.
CarvPath (libcarvpath) is a library aimed at computer forensic tools that process disk and/or memory dump images or other large data files. The library allows the creation and manipulation of CarvPath annotations, which are a way to annotate partitions, files, alternate streams, processes etc. within a disk or memory image as a string. Entities within a CarvPath notation can be fragmented and/or nested, and allow for the expression of 'sparse' fragments within an entity. The CarvPath annotations resemble a path string in a filesystem, and thus present a basis for the interaction between computer forensics tools and the CarvPath-based user space file-system, CarvFs.
