Linux Forensics Tools Repository: Package Summary for Packages on February 7, 2016:

  • libvslvm{,-devel,-python,-python3,-tools}-20160110-1.{fc20,fc21,fc22}.{i686,x86_64}.rpm, libvslvm{,-devel,-python,-python3,-tools}-20160110-1.el7.x86_64.rpm, and libvslvm{,-devel,-python,-tools}-20160110-1.el6.{i686,x86_64}.rpm - Libvslvm is a library and tools to access the Linux Logical Volume Manager (LVM) volume system format. See here for the list of changes.
  • dfvfs-20160203-1.(fc20,fc21,fc22,fc23,el6,el7}.noarch.rpm - dfVFS, the Digital Forensics Virtual File System, provides read-only access to file-system objects from various storage media types and file formats. The goal of dfVFS is to provide a generic interface for accessing file-system objects, for which it uses several back-ends that provide the actual implementation of the various storage media types, volume systems and file systems. See here for the list of changes.

    At this time, this repository, in combination of all supporting repositories, provides all of the necessary packages for Fedora versions 20, 21, 22, and 23 for i686 and x86_64 architectures and CentOS/RHEL versions 6 and 7 for the x86_64 architecture for this version of dfvfs.
  • xlsxwriter-0.8.4-1.{fc20,fc21,fc22,fc23}.{i686,x86_64}.rpm and xlsxwriter-0.8.4-1.{el6,el7}.x86_64.rpm- XlsxWriter is a Python module for writing files in the Excel 2007+ XLSX file format. XlsxWriter can be used to write text, numbers, formulas and hyperlinks to multiple worksheets and it supports features such as formatting and many more, including:
    • 100% compatible Excel XLSX files.
    • Full formatting.
    • Merged cells.
    • Defined names.
    • Charts.
    • Autofilters.
    • Data validation and drop down lists.
    • Conditional formatting.
    • Worksheet PNG/JPEG images.
    • Rich multi-format strings.
    • Cell comments.
    • Integration with Pandas.
    • Textboxes.
    • Memory optimization mode for writing large files.
    It supports Python 2.5, 2.6, 2.7, 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 3.4, 3.5, Jython and PyPy and uses standard libraries only. The goal of dfWinReg is to provide a generic interface for accessing Windows Registry objects that resembles the Registry key hierarchy as seen on a live Windows system.
  • plaso-1.4-3.{fc20,fc21,fc22,fc23}.{i686,x86_64}.rpm, plaso-1.4-3.{el6,el7}.x86_64.rpm - Plaso is the Python based back-end engine used by tools such as log2timeline for automatic creation of a super timelines. The goal of log2timeline (and thus plaso) is to provide a single tool that can parse various log files and forensic artifacts from computers and related systems, such as network equipment to produce a single correlated timeline. This timeline can then be easily analysed by forensic investigators/analysts, speeding up investigations by correlating the vast amount of information found on an average computer system. This release adds the missing artifacts and python-requests dependencies.

    At this time, this repository, in combination of all supporting repositories, provides all of the necessary packages for Fedora versions 20, 21, 22, and 23 for i686 and x86_64 architectures and CentOS/RHEL versions 7 for the x86_64 architecture for this version of plaso.
