Automatic creation of a super timeline
Plaso is the Python based back-end engine used by tools such as log2timeline for automatic creation of a super timelines. The goal of log2timeline and thus plaso is to provide a single tool that can parse various log files and forensic artifacts from computer and related systems, such as network equipment to produce a single correlated timeline. This timeline can then be easily analysed by forensic investigators/analysts, speeding up investigations by correlating the vast amount of information found on an average computer system.
