The Volatility Framework was designed to be expanded by plugins. Here is a list of the published plugins for the Volatility 1.3 framework. Note that these plugins are not hosted on the wiki, but all on external sites. The latest release of the Volatility Framework is 2.2. These plugins are not compatible with the latest version of the framework and information about compatible plugins can be found on the wiki on the project Googlecode site.
