Volatility Talk at Upcoming NYC4SEC

The Volatility team will give a talk at the next NYC4SEC meetup on memory forensics on May 8th, 2014 at John Jay College.  Make sure to RSVP if you are planning to attend, since there is limited seating!

 Thanks For the Memory: Rootkits, Exfil and APT - RAM Conquers All

The ability to perform digital investigations and incident response is becoming a critical skill for many occupations. Unfortunately, digital investigators frequently lack the training or experience to take advantage of the volatile artifacts found in physical memory. Volatile memory contains valuable information about the runtime state of the system, provides the ability to link artifacts from traditional forensic analysis (network, file system, registry), and provides the ability to ascertain investigative leads that have been unbeknownst to most analysts. Malicious adversaries have been leveraging this knowledge disparity to undermine many aspects of the digital investigation process with such things as anti-forensics techniques, memory resident malware, kernel rootkits, encryption (file systems, network traffic, etc), and Trojan defenses.  The only way to turn-the-tables and defeat a creative digital human adversary is through talented analysts.
This talk demonstrates the importance of including Volatile memory in your investigations with an overview of the most widely used memory forensics tool, Volatility, by its developers.

OMFW 2013 Slides

In case you missed it, I put up my slides for my OMFW 2013 talk "Every Step You Take: Profiling the System".  You can find them here on google docs. Some of the animations may not render properly, even if played, but you get the idea.  If you want to see the cyboxer plugin, send me an email (jamie.levy {at} gmail . com).
