LINUX FORENSIC

Backtrack linux have Forensics Capabilities

BackTrack is a distribution designed by Jason Dennis based on the Ubuntu Linux distribution aimed at digital forensics and penetration testing use. It was named after backtracking, a search algorithm. In March 2013, the Offensive Security team created a fork of BackTrack named Kali Linux.

History

The BackTrack distribution originated from the merger of two formerly competing distributions which focused on penetration testing:

  • WHAX: a Slax-based Linux distribution developed by Mati Aharoni, a security consultant. Earlier versions of WHAX were called Whoppix and were based on Knoppix.

  • Auditor Security Collection: a Live CD based on Knoppix developed by Max Moser which included over 300 tools organized in a user-friendly hierarchy.

    The overlap with Auditor and WHAX in purpose and in their collection of tools partly led to the merger.
