For those who do not know, now cases of computer forensics are also dealt with (data analysis, emails, extracting sensitive information from networks, etc.).

Each time the professionals of this new variant of forensic analysis They are more in demand and that is why the free software community has come up with the idea of ​​making the job easier and creating the DEFT Linux distro. It already integrates a large number of packages and tools for forensic analysis, such as antimalware, file analysis, data recovery software, scripts to calculate hash (SHA1, SHA256, MD5, ...), hard drive cloners, password recovery BIOS, compressed file code decryptors, etc.
