NAME¶autopsy - Autopsy Forensic Browser
SYNOPSIS¶autopsy [-c] [-C] [-d evid_locker ] [-i device filesystem mnt ] [-p port ] [addr]
DESCRIPTION¶By default, autopsy starts the Autopsy Forensic Browser server on port 9999 and and accepts connections from the localhost. If -p port is given, then the server opens on that port and if addr is given, then connections are only accepted from that host. When the -i argument is given, then autopsy goes into live analysis mode.
The arguments are as follows:
- -d evid_locker
- Directory where cases and hosts are stored. This overrides the LOCKDIR value in conf.pl. The path must be a full path (i.e. start with /).
- -i device filesystem mnt
- Specify the information for the live analysis mode. This can be specified as many times as needed. The device field is for the raw file system device, the filesystem field is for the file system type, and the mnt field is for the mounting point of the file system.
- -p port
- TCP port for server to listen on.
- IP address or host name of where investigator is located. If localhost is used, then 'localhost' must be used in the URL. If you use the actual hostname or IP, it will be rejected.
When started, the program will display a URL to paste into an HTML browser. The browser must support frames and forms. The Autopsy Forensic Browser will allow an investigator to analyze images generated by dd(1) for evidence. The program allows the images to be analyzed by browsing files, blocks, inodes, or by searching the blocks. The program also generates Autopsy reports that include collection time, investigators name, and MD5 hash values.
VARIABLES¶The following variables can be set in conf.pl.
EXAMPLE¶# autopsy -p 8888 10.1.34.19
