Free Digital Forensic Examination Toolkit Features Cutting-Edge Technology
BETHESDA, Md., Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- SANS Institute today announced it will debut a new version of its popular digital forensic examination toolkit, SIFT Workstation, at the upcoming SANS Digital Forensics and Incident Response Training Event (DFIRCON -- pronounced dē-'fәr-'kän) in Monterey, CA, March 5 – 10. SIFT 3.0 is a complete rebuild of the previous SIFT version and features the latest digital forensic tools available today.
Offered free of charge, the SIFT 3.0 Workstation will debut during SANS' Advanced Computer Forensic Analysis and Incident Response course (FOR508) at DFIRCON. SIFT 3.0 demonstrates that advanced investigations and responding to intrusions can be accomplished using cutting-edge open-source tools that are freely available and frequently updated.
"Even if SIFT were to cost tens of thousands of dollars, it would still be a very competitive product," says, Alan Paller, director of research at SANS. "At no cost, there is no reason it should not be part of the portfolio in every organization that has skilled forensics analysts."
Developed and continually updated by an international team of forensic experts, the SIFT is a group of free open-source forensic tools designed to perform detailed digital forensic examinations in a variety of settings. With over 100,000 downloads to date, the SIFT continues to be the most popular open-source forensic offering next to commercial source solutions.
"The SIFT Workstation has quickly become my "go to" tool when conducting an exam. The powerful open source forensic tools in the kit on top of the versatile and stable Linux operating system make for quick access to most everything I need to conduct a thorough analysis of a computer system," said Ken Pryor, GCFA Robinson, IL Police Department.
Key new features of SIFT 3.0 include:
- Ubuntu LTS 12.04 Base
- 64 bit base system
- Better memory utilization
- Auto-DFIR package update and customizations
- Latest forensic tools and techniques
- VMware Appliance
- Ready to tackle forensics
- Cross compatibility between Linux and Windows
- Option to install stand-alone via (.iso) or use via VMware Player/Workstation
This unique Digital Forensics and Incident Response (DFIR) event brings SANS' most popular forensics courses, instructors, and bonus seminars together in one place. It is one of the industry's most comprehensive DFIR training experiences.
