GRR

GRR Rapid Response is an incident response framework focused on remote live forensics.

GRR consists of an agent (client) that can be deployed to a target system, and server infrastructure that can manage and talk to the agent.

The software is maintained by 6 full employed developers at Google.

Client Features:

  • Cross-platform support for Linux, Mac OS X and Windows clients.
  • Live remote memory analysis using open source memory drivers for Linux, Mac OS X and Windows, and the Rekall memory analysis framework.
  • Powerful search and download capabilities for files and the Windows registry.
  • Secure communication infrastructure designed for Internet deployment.
  • Client automatic update support.
  • Detailed monitoring of client CPU, memory, IO usage and self-imposed limits.

Server Features:

  • Fully fledged response capabilities handling most incident response and forensics tasks.
  • OS-level and raw file system access, using the SleuthKit (TSK).
  • Enterprise hunting (searching across a fleet of machines) support.
  • Fully scalable back-end to handle very large deployments.
  • Automated scheduling for recurring tasks.
  • Fast and simple collection of hundreds of digital forensic artifacts.
  • Asynchronous design allows future task scheduling for clients, designed to work with a large fleet of laptops.
  • Ajax Web UI.
  • Fully scriptable IPython console access.
  • Basic system timelining features.
  • Basic reporting infrastructure.
