CAINE


Last Update: 2024-02-02 02:44 UTC

The main design objectives that CAINE aims to guarantee are: an interoperable environment that supports the digital investigator during the four phases of the digital investigation, a user-friendly graphical interface, and a semi-automated compilation of the final report.

  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "plasma-desktop" package and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

after installing you must use boot repair
after isntallation working some time then it will ask you to update and upgrade
and if you decide to upgrade it after fresh install
system drive goes to RO
no gui only terminal
after remounting the drive to RW
network stops working and so on..

Ubiquity Boot Loader?
Must be installed manually?
Why?

Also, if using it is going to require this much extra work just to get it operable, some step-by-step instructions on how to accomplish this on the website would be nice.

Kind of like losing a winning lottery ticket at the moment.
You know it will be great.
If you could only get it to work.

Great forensic and investigation OS. There are lots of programs to use to aid in forensics and investigating of another hard drive or solid-state drive while using this. It’s stable, speedy and easy-to-use. I recommend this if you need a distro for forensics and investigation of a hard drive or solid-state drive.
