This program illustrates automatic techniques for locating 128-bit and
256-bit AES keys in a captured memory image.
The program uses various algorythms and also performs a simple entropy test to
filter out blocks that are not keys.  It counts the number of repeated bytes
and skips blocks that have too many repeats.
This method works even if several bits of the key schedule have been
corrupted due to memory decay.
