Volatility is the world’s most widely used framework for extracting digital                                                                                                                                                                   
artifacts from volatile memory (RAM) samples. The extraction techniques are                                                                                                                                                                   
performed completely independent of the system being investigated but offer                                                                                                                                                                   
visibility into the runtime state of the system. The framework is intended

platform for further work into this exciting area of research.                                                                                                                                                                                
In 2019, the Volatility Foundation released a complete rewrite of the                                                                                                                                                                         
framework, Volatility 3. The project was intended to address many of the                                                                                                                                                                      
technical and performance challenges associated with the original                                                                                                                                                                             
code base that became apparent over the previous 10 years. Another benefit                                                                                                                                                                    
of the rewrite is that Volatility 3 could be released under a custom                                                                                                                                                                          
license that was more aligned with the goals of the Volatility community,

Kudos to Miro Hroncok for preparing the spec file.

This package is meant to be packaged for side-by-side install with python2-volatility and is meant to replace it in F32+.

Comment 2 Miro Hrončok 2019-10-31 00:12:27 UTC
Setting FE-Legal blocker for the license clarification.

Comment 3 Tom "spot" Callaway 2019-10-31 15:56:23 UTC
Haven't forgotten about this license. It's gonna need some thought from the lawyers.

Thanks Tom!
