Hi all! Caine 1.0 and NBCaine 1.0 are online now! I am Nanni Bassetti and I took the legacy of Giancarlo Giustini the founder of the distro, who remains in the team.
I applied 3 patches: one for this BUG, one for the mount policies, those are safer and future proof, and one for the partitions numbering...
Welcome to Maxim Suhanov, (AKA "forensics" in our forum), in our team!

I apologize for the wait, but work and other business have kept me from completely devote to CAINE. I am back to work, and now in my spare time I'm updating the software and all the forensic products; in few months the 1.0 will be available for download as promised.
Thank you everybody for your support!

“Regarding forensic software, so much is already out there, both free and commercial. If you're just getting started, take a look at Harlan's list and try out the Caine forensic and IR LiveCD, which contains all you need to get your feet wet. IT shops that have already purchased forensic packages, like FTK and Encase, can easily install it in the lab at no additional cost provided they use their existing licensing dongle when not in use for an actual case.”
John H. Sawyer, senior security engineer on the IT Security Team at the University of Florida.
Windows FE “Live CD” Posts Followup - link
“Curiously, and not noted in the test, was the fact that I tried local installation of Helix, RAPTOR, and DEFT forensic Linux builds on the test system’s hard drive. All three balked during the drive preparation process, despite my successful manual creation of the ext3 and swap partitions manually in their installers. Only the CAINE Live CD allowed me to install itself locally with no issues or complaints.”
From Claus Valca blog.
Applied Information Security book (future publication)
“CAINE is a distribution focused on IT Forensics. It is a good learning environment for beginning users. CAINE has intuitive interfaces, a variety of functionality, and good reporting/documentation tools. Most IT Forensics suites are quite expensive and require a fair amount of training. A free tool like CAINE that has good collection, analysis, and reporting tools is invaluable for someone just starting out in the field.”
Dr. Randall Boyle, professor at the University of Utah.
CAINE ISO has reached 1500 downloads, and the new entry NBCAINE is currently at 120 downloads!

Joe Cicero wrote me this e-mail today:
I've been teaching Incident Response, E-discovery, and Computer Forensics for approximately 5 years at the technical college level. I used other open source tools and utilities before CAINE but none of them worked as well "out of the box". I am a regular user of the forum and I get quick responses to my e-mails and postings when contacting the CAINE team. If you are interested in learning, teaching or conducting computer forensics and you want to spend less time configuring and more time analyzing CAINE is for you.
Joe Cicero will mention the use of CAINE in his discussion at Defcon 17, (July 31st - August 2nd, 2009 at the Riviera Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada).
Thank you Joe!
Joe Cicero is currently a Network Specialist Instructor for Northeast Wisconsin Technical College, he specializes in teaching Linux, Network Security, and Computer Forensics Courses.

CAINE 0.5 iso has been downloaded 250 times in only 5 days, and the site has sustained a really huge amount of requests this week, with a peak never seen before!
Thank you for choosing us!
Jaime Andrés Restrepo, a Computer Security Researcher, has just translated the report template in Spanish, and we will include the new template in the future version of CAINE.
If you wish to participate by providing the translation of the report in your language or if you have found a translation mistake, please contact the CAINE team.
I also suggest to take a look to our forum here, if you want to contribute or find some important informations and many guides provided directly by the users of CAINE.
A lot of digital security and computer forensics web sites are talking about our brand new version:
