BALUG: Tu 2009-06-16 Kyle Rankin on forensics

Bay Area Linux User Group (BALUG)
Tuesday 6:30 P.M. 2009-06-16

Please RSVP if you're planning to come (see further below).

For our 2009-06-16 BALUG meeting, we're excited to have Kyle Rankin[1]
on forensics.

In this talk Kyle Rankin will provide an introduction to performing
forensics analysis on Linux machines using the popular Sleuth Kit[2]
tools with their easy-to-use Autopsy[3] web-based front-end.  The talk
will cover initial installation and configuration of Sleuthkit and
Autopsy, basic concepts and considerations for a forensics
investigation, and at the end there will be a demo with a real,
compromised Linux image.

Kyle Rankin is a systems architect for Quinstreet, Inc.[4], the current
president of the North Bay Linux Users Group[5], the author of Knoppix
Hacks[6], Knoppix Pocket Reference[7], Linux Multimedia Hacks[8], and
Ubuntu Hacks[9] and has contributed to a number of other O'Reilly[10]
books. Kyle is also a columnist for Linux Journal[11] and has had
articles featured in PC Magazine[12], TechTarget[13] and other
