Line 1: Line 1:
Analysis of [[physical memory]] from [[Windows]] systems can yield significant information about the target operating system. This field is still very new, but holds great promise.

This is the list of Training Providers, who offer training courses of interest to practitioners and researchers in the field of Digital Forensics.  Conferences which may include training are located on the [[Upcoming_events]] page.

<b>PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU EDIT THE LIST BELOW</b><br>
 +
Some training providers offer on-going training courses that are available in an on-line "any time" format. Others have regularly scheduled training that is the same time each month.  Others have recurring training but are scheduled at various times throughout the year. Providers training courses should be listed in alphabetical order, and should be listed in the appropriate section.  Non-Commercial training is typically offered by governmental agencies or organizations that directly support law enforcement.  Tool Vendor training is training offered directly by a specific tool vendor, which may apply broadly, but generally is oriented to the vendor's specific tool (or tool suite).  Commercial Training is training offered by commercial companies which may or may not be oriented to a specific tool/tool suite, but is offered by a company other than a tool vendor.
  
Getting started with memory analysis can be difficult without some known images to practice with.  
+
<i>Some training opportunities may be <u>limited</u> to <b>Law Enforcement Only</b> or to a specific audience.  Such restrictions should be noted when known.</i>

|-
During the 1990s, it became a [[best practice]] to capture a [[Tools:Memory_Imaging|memory image]] during [[Incident Response|incident response]]. At the time, the only way to analyze such memory images was using [[strings]]. Although this method could reveal interesting details about the memory image, there was no way to associate what data came from what program, let alone what user.  
+
|BerlaCorp iOS and GPS Forensics Training
 
+
|http://www.berlacorp.com/training.html
In the summer 2005 the [[Digital Forensic Research Workshop]] published a ''Memory Analysis Challenge''. They distributed two memory images and asked researchers to answer a number of questions about a security incident. The challenge produced two seminal works. The first, by [[Chris Betz]], introduced a tool called [[memparser]]. The second, by [[George Garner]] and [[Robert-Jan Mora]] produced [[KnTList]].

At the [[Blackhat (conference)|Blackhat Federal]] conference in March 2007, [[AAron Walters]] and [[Nick Petroni]] released a suite called [[volatools]]. Although it only worked on [[Windows XP]] Service Pack 2 images, it was able to produce a number of useful data. [[volatools]] was updated and re-released as [[Volatility]] in August 2007, and is now maintained and distributed by [https://www.volatilesystems.com/ Volatile Systems].

Revision as of 13:25, 13 June 2014

This is the list of Training Providers, who offer training courses of interest to practitioners and researchers in the field of Digital Forensics. Conferences which may include training are located on the Upcoming_events page.

PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU EDIT THE LIST BELOW
Some training providers offer on-going training courses that are available in an on-line "any time" format. Others have regularly scheduled training that is the same time each month. Others have recurring training but are scheduled at various times throughout the year. Providers training courses should be listed in alphabetical order, and should be listed in the appropriate section. Non-Commercial training is typically offered by governmental agencies or organizations that directly support law enforcement. Tool Vendor training is training offered directly by a specific tool vendor, which may apply broadly, but generally is oriented to the vendor's specific tool (or tool suite). Commercial Training is training offered by commercial companies which may or may not be oriented to a specific tool/tool suite, but is offered by a company other than a tool vendor.

Some training opportunities may be limited to Law Enforcement Only or to a specific audience. Such restrictions should be noted when known.
