Description

Volatile Memory Acquisition Tool


Belkasoft Live RAM Capturer is a tiny free forensic tool that allows to reliably extract the entire contents of computer’s volatile memory – even if protected by an active anti-debugging or anti-dumping system. Separate 32-bit and 64-bit builds are available in order to minimize the tool’s footprint as much as possible. Memory dumps captured with Belkasoft Live RAM Capturer can be analyzed with Live RAM Analysis in Belkasoft Evidence Center. Belkasoft Live RAM Capturer is compatible with all versions and editions of Windows including XP, Vista, Windows 7, 8 and 10, 2003 and 2008 Server.

Why Memory Dump Is the First Thing To Do During the Acquisition

Memory dumps are a valuable source of ephemeral evidence and volatile information. Memory dumps may contain passwords to encrypted volumes (TrueCrypt, BitLocker, PGP Disk), account login credentials for many webmail and social network services such as Gmail, Yahoo Mail, Hotmail; Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus; file sharing services such as Dropbox, Flickr, SkyDrive, etc.

In order to extract ephemeral evidence out of already captured memory dumps, forensic experts must use proper analysis software such as Belkasoft Evidence Center. Besides, some other tools can be used to extract passwords to encrypted volumes (e.g. Elcomsoft Forensic Disk Decryptor).
