The Linux operating system has been used as a server system in plenty of business services worldwide. Nowadays, a lot of incident response approaches on such kind of platform have been established by many researchers active in the computer forensic discipline. Interestingly, many frameworks about how to deal with a live digital investigation on a Linux systems have been illustrated in the forensic literature. Conversely, as a matter of fact, there are not so many tools for approaching live forensic of a Linux system. Thus, we have developed and implemented a new framework to deal with a compromised Linux system in a digital forensic investigation. The resulting framework has been called LECT (Linux Evidence Collection Tool) ant aims to represent a significant contribution in the field of live forensic analysis of Linux based systems.
