FIRE is a portable bootable CD-based distribution with the goal of providing an immediate environment to perform forensic analysis, incident response, data recovery, virus scanning and vulnerability assessment. It also provides necessary tools for live forensics/analysis on win32, Solaris, SPARC and x86 Linux hosts just by mounting the CDROM and using trusted static binaries available in /statbins. In other words, FIRE is a Linux distribution with lots of useful security tools and a fine menu system which makes it very easy to use. Nothing on your computer is modified, so you can try it out safely.
