Finnix 103 is a Debian-based live CD for system administrators. It comes with new "forensic mode". When booted with the 'forensic' or 'forensics' boot flags, Finnix changes its behavior to minimize the chance of loading suspect code or writing to suspect media. These changes include cryptographic hash verification of discovered Finnix CD media, locking block devices, and avoiding swap, LVM, RAID, crypt and network auto-detection. Entropy generation added. Modern Linux distributions add to their random number generator (RNG) entropy pool by saving some random data before shutdown, and adding it back into the pool during start-up. A live CD cannot normally do this, so Finnix includes a new feature to generate random data to be fed into the pool.
Finnix is a small, self-contained, bootable Linux CD distribution for system administrators, based on Debian GNU/Linux. You can use it to mount and manipulate hard drives and partitions, monitor networks, rebuild boot records, install other operating systems, and much more.
