Ubuntu-based CAINE (Computer Aided INvestigative Environment) GNU/Linux distribution is designed by Italian developer Nanni Bassetti to be a complete digital forensic environment, and it’s been updated on October 31, 2016, to version 8.0.
Dubbed “Blazar,” powered by the long-term supported Linux 4.4 kernel and Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial Xerus) operating system CAINE 8.0 arrives after one year of hard work with UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) and Secure Boot support, renewed and new tools, including the Systemback open-source and simple system backup and restore application.
Among the included tools, we can mention XAll 1.5, MemDump, XRCed, PEFrame, Tilda, Shrew, RecuperaBit, Gigolo, Jeex, Samba, SQLParse, Yara, wxHexEditor, ADB and LibMobileDevice, PffLib, HashDB, imount, vhdimount, vhdiinfo, iscsitarget, img_map, and vblade. New RBFstab and Mounter, live preview Caja scripts, and a root file system spoofing patch were also implemented.
