I am a Forensics expert by trade, and I was wondering if anyone else tinkers in forensics in the linux environment. It is extremely powerful for retrieving data from windows machines, and I wondered if anyone had some techniques to share?

This is a very difficualt topic. ofc is linux very powerful for this Job.
The "forensics" is a very bride area, but there some great tools out. For example to restore delete files i can recommend testdisk.

But what do you exactly want to cover ?


Take a look about this link, it containt a quite good overview of great tools.

so far

I have done multiple things in linux. I use the Autopsy forensic suite, what I was asking is if anyone else uses linux for their forensics rather than say encase or ftk.

I use linux in all stages of forensics investigation. I make a copy of the drive, and then examine it using grep, string, to name but a few.

I guess not many people are into forensics really.

This earth is packed with people I wouldn't think not to many people are into this, meaning a lot of people do forensics. Also yes, Linux is very powerful it can only help in so many ways:
