Thumbtack

Thumbtack is a Flask powered web front-end providing a REST-ful API to mount and unmount forensic disk images, built on top of the imagemounter library. It supports the mounting of many disk image file types, depending on which supporting libraries are installed.

Note

Though imagemounter will work on any Unix- or Linux-based OS that has support for the underlying mounting utilities, only the Ubuntu Linux distribution has been used to test Thumbtack.

Warning

DO NOT USE THIS TOOL IN A PRODUCTION SETTING! Due to the user restrictions of most disk-mounting utilities, you will have more success with Thumbtack when it is run as root. For more information on deploying Flask applications, please refer to Flask’s deployment documentation.
