Memory Forensics Tool Testing

Volatile Systems LLC is pleased to announce the Memory Forensics Tool Testing initiative. With the growing number of memory acquisition tools that have recently been made available, Volatile Systems has begun establishing a team of industry experts to objectively evaluate these tools. As with other computer forensic tool testing efforts (CFTT), the goal of this project is to develop an open methodology and metrics for testing memory acquisition tools. The hope is to help drive memory forensics tools to improve and help users make informed decisions.

Over the last five years, the Volatile Systems team has built numerous hardware and software acquisition methods and, as a result, has the unique combination of institutional knowledge and technical capabilities necessary to effectively lead this effort. We have also chosen a respected team of industry experts to help ensure the validity and objectivity of our testing methodology. As the leading provider of memory forensic analysis services, we are committed to helping our customers and the community at large find the best solutions to suit their memory acquisition needs. If you would like to take part in this project or feel you have insight that could be valuable, please feel free to contact us. We also extend this invitation to vendors who want to make sure that we are evaluating their latest offerings. The MFTT initiative will be a major topic on the OMFW agenda!
