Enhance your Python interactive sessions with rlcompleter and unleash the power of Volatility for memory forensics.

## Python rlcompleter 사용법

### Introduction
In this guide, we will explore how to use the `rlcompleter` module in Python to enhance the completion functionality in the Python interpreter. The `rlcompleter` module provides features that make it easier to read and write completion and history files in the Python interpreter. It can be used directly or through an interactive prompt to support Python identifier completion.

### Volatility and Readline
– **Volatility**: Volatility is an open-source memory analysis tool that provides a CLI interface for analyzing memory dump files. It is widely used in memory forensics to analyze dumped files from computers, allowing users to confirm process information and network details. It offers process dump functionality to inspect the contents of processes running on laptops or computers.

– **Readline**: The `readline` module in Python defines several functions that make it easy to read and write completion and history files in the Python interpreter. It can be used directly or through the `rlcompleter` module to support Python identifier completion in an interactive prompt. Any configurations made using this module will affect the behavior of the interpreter, interactive prompt, and the built-in `input()` function.

### Volatility Plugin Features
Here are some of the key features provided by Volatility plugins:

1. **imageinfo**: Outputs profile information of the memory dump file (identifying the operating system and hardware architecture).
2. **timeliner**: Outputs artifacts with time information in Windows.
3. **info**: Allows checking plugin information.
4. **pstree**: Outputs the process tree structure.
5. **pslist**: Outputs the process list with walking capabilities.
6. **psscan**: Outputs the process list with pattern matching.
7. **psxview**: Detects hidden processes in various ways.
8. **procdump**: Extracts process execution files.
9. **memdump**: Dumps the entire memory region used by a process.
10. **filescan**: Searches for file objects in memory.
11. **hivelist**: Lists files in memory.
12. **cmdscan**: Verifies commands executed in the command prompt.
13. **cmdline**: Checks the command history executed in the command prompt.
14. **netscan**: Checks network connections, etc.

### Volatility Installation Steps
To install Volatility, follow these steps:

1. Install Python 2.7 and ensure to add `python.exe` to the system path during installation.
2. Install `pycrypto` by downloading the appropriate version for Python 2.7 from [voidspace.org.uk](http://www.voidspace.org.uk/python/modules.shtml#pycrypto).
3. Install `distorm3` from the [GitHub releases page](https://github.com/gdabah/distorm/releases).
4. Install `PIL` by running `pip install Pillow` in the command prompt.
5. Download the Volatility zip file from [volatilityfoundation.org](https://www.volatilityfoundation.org/26) and extract it to `C:\Python27\Lib\site-packages`.
6. Navigate to the extracted folder in the command prompt using `cd C:\Python27\Lib\site-packages\volatility-2.6\volatility-master`.
7. Run `python setup.py build` followed by `python setup.py install` in the command prompt.
8. Verify the installation by running `python vol.py -h`. If the output displays correctly, the installation is successful; otherwise, troubleshoot any errors.

### Conclusion
By following these steps, you can successfully install Volatility and leverage its powerful memory forensics framework. Additionally, understanding how to utilize the `rlcompleter` module in Python can enhance your interactive Python sessions by providing efficient completion capabilities. Experiment with the Volatility plugins and explore the various functionalities they offer for memory analysis and forensic investigations. Happy coding!
