The following variables can be set in conf.pl. USE_STIMEOUT When set to 1 (default is 0), the server will exit after STIMEOUT seconds of inactivity (default is 3600). This setting is recommended if cookies are not used. BASEDIR Directory where cases and forensic images are located. The images must have simple names with only letters, numbers, '_', '-', and '.'. (See FILES). TSKDIR Directory where The Sleuth Kit binaries are located. NSRLDB Location of the NIST National Software Reference Library (NSRL). INSTALLDIR Directory where Autopsy was installed. GREP_EXE Location of grep(1) binary. STRINGS_EXE Location of strings(1) binary.
Evidence Locker The Evidence Locker is where all cases and hosts will be saved to. It is a directory that will have a directory for each case. Each case directory will have a directory for each host. <CASE_DIR>/case.aut This file is the case configuration file for the case. It contains the description of the case and default subdirectories for the hosts. <CASE_DIR>/investigators.txt This file contains the list of investigators that will use this case. These are used for logging only, not authentication. <HOST_DIR>/host.aut This file is where the host configuration details are saved. It is similar to the 'fsmorgue' file from previous versions of Autopsy. It has an entry for each file in the host and contains the host description. md5.txt Some directories will have this file in it. It contains MD5 values for important files in the directory. This makes it easy to validate the integrity of images.
