As announced last month, even today we release the official documentation of the project. For now, it is only in Italian, it will be soon translated into English, Spanish and Chinese. Any other volunteer?
The project documentation is free and open to any useful integration therefore
if you want to help expanding the manual, you can contact me (Stefano Fratepietro) by e-mail: stefano “at” deftlinux.net.

During the next week, we will release the DEFT virtual appliance and dd image for the USB stick.

IISFA (Italian chapter) appreciates DEFT project as a contribution to the development of the Computer Forensic analysis. The appreciation of IISFA is both scientific and cultural.
This work represent the work of the DEFT team and not of the IISFA association.

A special thanks to all the people that worked with me as volunteers: Salvo Tarantino, Davide Gabrini, Massimiliano Dal Cero, Bartolomeo Bogliolo , Sandro Rossetti and Valerio Leomporra.

Thank you guys!

    Hello! This seems to be a very cool project and Linux distro. I’d like to know if you guys could recommend me either some books or some sites to begin learning how (and when, why) to use the tools included in this forensic CD.
    Keep up the good work guys! Cheers!

    Avast flags the iso as a virus

  3. @Sheli: it’s a false positive because there are some hacking tools.
