While there are many security-focused Linux distributions on the market, one distribution distinguishes itself by targeting forensic investigators. Instead of penetration testing tools, CAINE – which is an acronym for Computer Aided INvestigative Environment and was updated to version 9.0 on October 25. It is loaded with applications and tools to help investigators find the clues and data points that are required for computer security forensics. Among the tools that are included in the CAINE 9.0 Quantum release are memory, database and network analysis applications. One such new tool is RegRipper, which enables researchers to extract and parse information from an operating system registry.
