CAINE (Computer Aided INvestigative Environment) is an Ubuntu-based GNU/Linux live distribution created as a project of digital forensics.
It offers a complete forensic environment that is organised to integrate existing software tools as software modules and to provide a friendly graphical interface. 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.
Key features of Caine include
- Caine Interface – a user-friendly interface that brings together some well-known forensic tools, many of which are open source.
- Updated and optimized environment to conduct a forensic analysis.
- Semi-automatic report generator.
