'''BSD (Berkley Software Development)''' is one of the three major forms of the UNIX operating system from which many versions have been created such as OpenBSD, FreeBSD, NetBSD, Trusted BSD, and very early versions of Sun’s Solaris. BSD was first released in the late 1970s and continues to have a strong following today exhibited in the continued existence of the above versions. The only exception is Sun who switched the design of their OS over to System V Release 4. --[[User:Shawn1024|Shawn1024]] 02:17, 17 May 2006 (EDT)

Memory Analysis is the science of using a memory image to determine information about running programs, the operating system, and the overall state of a computer. Because the analysis is highly dependent on the operating system, it has been divded into the following pages:

OS-Independent Analysis

At the IEEE Security and Privacy conference in May 2011, Brendan Dolan-Gavitt presented a novel system, Virtuoso, that was able to perform operating-system independent memory analysis. Using virtual machine introspection accompanied by a number of formal program analysis techniques, his system was able to monitor the machine-level instructions and behavior of application actions (listing processes, network connections, etc) and then automatically generate Volatility plugins that replicated this analysis.

Encryption Keys

Various types of encryption keys can be extracted during memory analysis.
