Regipy is a python library for parsing offline registry hives. regipy has a lot of capabilities: Use as a library: Recurse over the registry hive, from root or a given path and get all subkeys and values Read specific subkeys and values Apply transaction logs on a registry hive Command Line Tools Dump an entire registry hive to json Apply transaction logs on a registry hive Compare registry hives Execute plugins from a robust plugin system (i.e: amcache, shimcache, extract computer name…) Installation Only python 3.7 is supported: pip install regipy also, it is possible to install from source by cloning the repository and executing: python install CLI Parse the header: registry-parse-header ~/Documents/TestEvidence/Registry/SYSTEM Example output: ╒════════════════════════╤══════════╕ │ signature │ b’regf’ │ ├────────────────────────┼──────────┤ │ primary_sequence_num │ 11639 │ ├────────────────────────┼──────────┤ │ secondary_sequence_num │ 11638 │ ├────────────────────────┼──────────┤ │ last_modification_time │ 0 │ ├────────────────────────┼──────────┤ │ major_version │ 1 │ ├────────────────────────┼──────────┤ │ minor_version │ 5 │ ├────────────────────────┼──────────┤ │ file_type │ 0 │ ├────────────────────────┼──────────┤ │ file_format │ 1 │ ├────────────────────────┼──────────┤ │ root_key_offset │ 32 │ ├────────────────────────┼──────────┤ │ hive_bins_data_size │ 10534912 │ ├────────────────────────┼──────────┤ │ clustering_factor │ 1 │ ├────────────────────────┼──────────┤ │ file_name │ SYSTEM │ ├────────────────────────┼──────────┤ │ checksum │ 0 │ ╘════════════════════════╧══════════╛ [2019-02-09 13:46:12.111654] WARNING: regipy.cli: Hive is not clean!
