  Description     : super timeline all the things

  Plaso (plaso langar að safna öllu) 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 computers 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.

Plaso depends on Python bindings for a number of separate packages by
Joachim Metz for parsing specific file or disk formats. Debian does
contain of those libraries but none of the Python bindings yet: libbde
libesedb libevt libevtx libewf libfwsi liblnk libmsiecf libolecf libqcow
libregf libsmdev libsmraw libvhdi libvmdk libvshadow.
