============================================================================ Volatility Framework - Volatile memory extraction utility framework

The Volatility Framework is a completely open collection of tools, implemented in Python under the GNU General Public License, for the extraction of digital artifacts from volatile memory (RAM) samples. The extraction techniques are performed completely independent of the system being investigated but offer visibilty into the runtime state of the system. The framework is intended to introduce people to the techniques and complexities associated with extracting digital artifacts from volatile memory samples and provide a platform for further work into this exciting area of research.

The Volatility distribution is available from: http://www.volatilityfoundation.org/#!releases/component_71401

Volatility should run on any platform that supports Python (http://www.python.org)

Volatility supports investigations of the following memory images:

Windows:

  • 32-bit Windows XP Service Pack 2 and 3

Volatility does not provide memory sample acquisition capabilities. For acquisition, there are both free and commercial solutions available. If you would like suggestions about suitable acquisition solutions, please contact us at:

volatility (at) volatilityfoundation (dot) org

Volatility supports a variety of sample file formats and the ability to convert between these formats:

  • Raw linear sample (dd)
  • Hibernation file (from Windows 7 and earlier)
  • Crash dump file
  • VirtualBox ELF64 core dump
  • VMware saved state and snapshot files
  • EWF format (E01)
  • LiME (Linux Memory Extractor) format
  • Mach-O file format
  • QEMU virtual machine dumps
  • Firewire
  • HPAK (FDPro)

For a more detailed list of capabilities, see the following:
