Russ McRee over at holisticinfosec.org has once again written an excellent ISSA Toolsmith article. This article is a review/tutorial of SIFT - SANS Investigative Forensic Toolkit. SIFT is Rob Lee's open source forensic toolkit used for the SANS SEC 508. Daniel Wesemann announced the availability of SIFT in a previous diary.
As usual Russ provides good insight into the high points of SIFT including how to install and configure SIFT. He then walks you through some of the features of SIFT by performing a basic investigation of a memory image.
While the article only scratches the surface it is definitely worth the read if you are interested in forensics using open source tools.
