Linux Forensics Tools Repository: Package Summary for Packages on July 27, 2016:

  • plaso-1.4.0-4.{fc20,fc21,fc22,fc23}.{i686,x86_64}.rpm, plaso-1.4.0-4.{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 is version 1.4.0 and not a beta release as was previously installed in the repository.

    At this time, this repository, in combination of all supporting repositories, provides all of the necessary packages for Fedora versions 20, 21, 22, 23, and 24 for i686 and x86_64 architectures and CentOS/RHEL versions 7 for the x86_64 architecture for this version of plaso.

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. This version uses the source code dated 2016-03-06 to fix this error: https://github.com/log2timeline/plaso/issues/803.
