This work explores the development of MemTri. A memory forensics triage tool that can assess the likelihood of criminal activity in a memory image, based on evidence data artefacts generated by several applications. Fictitious illegal suspect activity scenarios were performed on virtual machines to generate 60 test memory images for input into MemTri. Four categories of applications (i.e. Internet Browsers, Instant Messengers, FTP Client and Document Processors) are examined for data artefacts located through the use of regular expressions. These identified data artefacts are then analysed using a Bayesian Network, to assess the likelihood that a seized memory image contained evidence of illegal firearms trading activity. MemTri’s normal mode of operation achieved a high artefact identification accuracy performance of 95.7% when the applications’ processes were running. However, this fell significantly to 60% as applications processes’ were terminated. To explore improving MemTri’s accuracy performance, a second mode was developed, which achieved more stable results of around 80% accuracy, even after applications processes’ were terminated.
