Wednesday, 30 November 2005, 3:43 PM EST

INSERT is a bootable Linux CD (currently Linux kernel 2.6.11.6 and Knoppix 3.9) with a set of useful security tools. It is developed by Inside Security IT GmbH. INSERT is not as heavy on the Forensic tools as some of the others available; however, it has some excellent hardware adaptability capabilities that have helped me tremendously. For instance, I had to try several different CDs before I found one that configured the NIC without any issues on that hard drive I mentioned earlier. INSERT was the tool that worked in that case.
