MAC memory dump

Post Posted: Tue May 15, 2018 2:33 am

I have used Blackbag's Macquisition to dump RAM on a running Macbook, using their soft reboot option. However, I am still searching for other tools (or commands) that get the job done. Windows has a lot of (free) tools, Mac hasn't.

Does anybody know any working tool and than of course, working on (High)Sierra. I can't get Rekall/osxpmem working. Is Surumi Recon Imager any good?

I've never tried to use it on a Mac but you could try Volatility.

Yeah agree with above, Volatility just released a whole bunch of new mac profiles last week too.

I will also agree with the above comments. I have tried volatility for Windows and its a great open source tool. The good thing about it is they are improvising the software regularly and their tech support is great too.

I could be wrong, but I don't think Volatility actually includes any functionality to make a memory dump on a Mac.

Volatility does not support ram dump, is used to extract & analyze artifacts from a dumped volatile memory.
MAC OSx has limited number of tools to dump volatile memory, I would suggest you to use MACQuisition by BlackBag or if you are looking for open source then go for Lime Forensics . However, you have to compile and build Lime module according to the target machine.
