MemGator is a memory file analysis tool that automates the extraction of data from a memory file and compiles a report for the investigator. MemGator brings together a number of tools such as the Volatility Framework, Scalpel File Carver and AESKeyFinder into the one program.
MemGator automates the running of nearly all the commands from Volatility Framework 2.3.1 For certain Volatility commands the user now has the option to add additional command line parameters. The program will automatically select the correct OS profile to use for all of the Volatility commands.
The user has the option to override the program and input manually an OS profile if required. In addition MemGator will automate the running of Scalpel while still allowing the user to add search strings of their choice. Scalpel will automatically carve for usernames and passwords for Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, Facebook, Livedrive and autofill form entries for the Chrome web browser. The program can also extract TrueCrypt encryption keys from the memory file.
