DEFT 5: Forensic Distro from Italy

Nov 12, 2009

DEFT Linux, a forensic distribution from Italy, is now available in version 5. Besides ISO images, developers are offering colorful pen drives.

With a 2.6.31 kernel from the current Xubuntu-Linux version, the new release comes with the resource-friendly LXDE desktop environment and thunar file manager.

The Live distribution delivers forensic tools like Sleuthkit 3.0.1, Autopsy 2.21 and Nessus 4.15. Affib is also included. Under the self-developed GUI DEFT Extra 2.0, the project has united programs for the Windows forensic. The makers have published a complete list of accompanying packages on the web.

DEFT 5 is available as a CD ISO image on its own mirror server for download. A USB version on a colorful pen drive can be purchased for Euro 15 (about $23). Municipal bodies will be allowed a discount.
