The Sleuth Kit can be used in two ways. The C library can be incorporated into larger digital forensic tools and the command line tools can be used directly by a user.
This section can help you find information on using the command line tools that come with TSK. Tool documents can be broken into two categories: those that come with the tools and those that are on the Wiki. Here are some useful starting points on the Wiki:
