- a user friendly graphical interface
- a semi-automated compilation of the final report
- New NAUTILUS SCripts

“rbfstab” is a utility that is activated during boot or when a device is plugged. It writes read-only entries to /etc/fstab so devices are safely mounted for forensic imaging/examination. It is self installing with ‘rbfstab -i’ and can be disabled with ‘rbfstab -r’. It contains many improvements over past rebuildfstab incarnations. Rebuildfstab is a traditional means for read-only mounting in forensics-orient distributions.
“mounter” is a GUI mounting tool that sits in the system tray. Left clicking the system tray drive icon activates a window where the user can select devices to mount or un-mount. With rbfstab activated, all devices, except those with volume label “RBFSTAB”, are mounted read-only. Mounting of block devices in Nautilus (file browser) is not possible for a normal user with rbfstab activated making mounter a consistent interface for users.
