aeskeyfind

This program illustrates automatic techniques for locating 128-bit and 256-bit AES keys in a captured memory image.

The program uses various algorithms and also performs a simple entropy test to filter out blocks that are not keys. It counts the number of repeated bytes and skips blocks that have too many repeats.

This method works even if several bits of the key schedule have been corrupted due to memory decay.

This package is useful to several activities, as forensics investigations.

Locates 128-bit and 256-bit AES keys in a captured memory image.

root@kali:~# aeskeyfind --help
aeskeyfind: invalid option -- '-'
Usage: aeskeyfind [OPTION]... MEMORY-IMAGE
Locates scheduled 128-bit and 256-bit AES keys in MEMORY-IMAGE.

	-v		verbose output -- prints the extended keys and 
			the constraints on the rows of the key schedule
	-q		don't display a progress bar
	-t THRESHOLD	sets the maximum number of bit errors allowed 
			in a candidate key schedule (default = 10)
	-h		displays this help message
