PALADIN has been described as a forensic examiner’s “Swiss Army Knife”.

PALADIN is a modified “live” Linux distribution based on Ubuntu that simplifies various forensics tasks in a forensically sound manner via the PALADIN Toolbox.

PALADIN is a complete solution for triage, imaging, examination and reporting containing a collection of over a hundred open source forensic applications found within our Forensic Tools directory.

PALADIN is available as donationware. We kindly request a donation to support the project and keep the updates coming. You can make a contribution by modifying the price below.

PALADIN for commercial use requires a minimum $25.00 donation per user per year.

The centerpiece of these tools is the PALADIN Toolbox. The PALADIN Toolbox has combined and simplified multiple forensic tasks into an easy to use GUI (graphical user interface) that requires minimal training and does not require users to utilize the command line.

The “engine” that runs the PALADIN Toolbox is a combination of applications that have been used by forensic examiners and investigators for years and have withstood scrutiny in many courts of law.
