About this project
This project was originally formed for a presentation on the usefulness of Python as a Forensic Tool. The code examples are free to use, modify and distribute under the GPLv2 Licence terms.
Below is a summary of the notebooks developed in this repository
A good starting point for those new to the Jupyter system. Has an introduction on how to use the notebooks and resources for learning more about Python for those new to scripting.
This notebook introduces the python-registry module and demonstrates how to interact with keys and values to extract useful information from the Windows Registry.
Install Python3 on your system and from the directory containing this
README.md run the below. The notebooks use Python 3.5.1.
$ pip insall virtualenv $ virtualenv -p [path to python] venv3 $ venv3/Scripts/activate.bat (venv3) $ pip install -r requirements.py3.txt (venv3) $ jupyter notebook
$ pip insall virtualenv $ virtualenv -p [path to python] venv3 $ source venv3/bin/activate (venv3) $ pip install -r requirements.py3.txt (venv3) $ jupyter notebook
Once you run the
jupyter notebook command above, your browser should open at http://localhost:8888. From this page, navigate into the
jupyter-notebooks directory and click on a Notebook to get started.
