Interrogate

Interrogate is a proof-of-concept tool for identification of cryptographic keys in binary material (regardless of target operating system), first and foremost for memory dump analysis and forensic usage. Able to identify AES, Serpent, Twofish and DER-encoded RSA keys as of version 0.0.4.

The tool was written as a part of my Master’s Thesis at NTNU.

Disclaimer

Do no evil with this tool. Also, I am a pentester, not a developer. So if you see weird code that bugs your purity senses, drop me a note on howI can improve it. Or even better, fork my code, change it and issue a pull request.
