PALADIN - Free Forensic Suite
Forensic Acquisition, Preview and Analysis - Simplified!
PALADIN is a modified Live Linux distribution based on Ubuntu that simplifies the process of creating forensic images in a forensically sound manner. PALADIN was designed with the understanding that many of those tasked with creating forensic images are not comfortable with using the command-line but still want to utilize the power of Linux. PALADIN was also designed with the understanding that many agencies or companies have limited budgets. PALADIN comes in two flavors - the free DVD version and as a credit-card style USB which can be purchased for $49.95 USD here.
