The Sleuth Kit Informer

Overview

The Sleuth Kit Informer was a bi-monthly newsletter for The Sleuth Kit, Autopsy, and related tools. The goal of the newsletter was to increase awareness, knowledge, and documentation for these tools.

The Informer is no longer active because of lack of time. It will be replaced with a blog in the future.
