Closer Look at Log2Timeline

Log2Timeline is an open source tool developed by Kristinn Gudjonsson focused on creating timelines with the purpose of digital forensic examination. With its ability to perform cross platform, it has become increasingly popular and bundled with open source forensic tools. The forensic distributions SIFT and TAPEWORM come with log2timeline preinstalled and set as primary tools on their systems.

In addition to Linux distributions, Log2timeline also runs on Microsoft Windows via the command line. Continue reading
