Memory Analysis - time to move beyond XP

One of my interests for the last couple of years has been memory analysis especially for use in malware analysis. I've mentioned the volatility framework in previous diaries, and I use it for nearly all of my memory analysis of WindowsXP systems, but I've recently begun thinking about what tools I need in order to do similar analysis on Mac OS X machines. So, I was thrilled when I saw that Matthieu Suiche (of windd fame) was doing a talk at BlackHat-DC on Mac OS X memory analysis. The slides are now available and can be found here, and the whitepaper here. A pretty nice read.
