Memory Forensics Of Network Devices

Memory forensics of PCs has become a popular forensic method, and has made great progress the last years thanks to the hard work of many researchers and open-source developers. But what about memory forensics of network devices? Like IOS routers?

In 2008, Felix Lindner presented on Cisco IOS Forensics, and years later, he open sourced his CIR tool.

Together with Xavier Mertens, we have 2 Cisco routers available to you to experiment on with my Network Appliance Forensic Toolkit.

We want to promote practicing and researching network device memory forensics, and started the Router Forensics project. I invite you to take a look, and if you are interested, you can reserve a spot on one of the online Cisco routers to practice memory forensics.
