Python Registry Parser

Project description


Regipy is a python library for parsing offline registry hives!


  • 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…)
Project page:

Using as a library:

from regipy.registry import RegistryHive
reg = RegistryHive('/Users/martinkorman/Documents/TestEvidence/Registry/Vibranium-NTUSER.DAT')

# Iterate over a registry hive recursively:
for entry in reg.rec_subkeys(as_json=True):

# Iterate over a key and get all subkeys and their modification time:
for sk in reg.get_key('Software').get_subkeys():
    print(, convert_wintime(sk.header.last_modified).isoformat())

# Get values from a specific registry key:
reg.get_key('Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\BrowserEmulation').get_values(as_json=True)

# Use plugins:
from regipy.plugins.ntuser.ntuser_persistence import NTUserPersistencePlugin
NTUserPersistencePlugin(reg, as_json=True).run()

# Run all supported plugins on a registry hive:
run_relevant_plugins(reg, as_json=True)


pip install regipy
