Movere does query the Windows registry. Whether Movere is scanning the targeted endpoint locally or remotely, it uses the .NET System.Win32.RegistryKey which represents a key-level node in the Windows Registry. This class offers registry encapsulation and Movere only opens it in non-writable mode (read-only) so that Movere cannot change the registry. Movere’s access to the registry is governed by Windows permissions and both 32 and 64-bit connection methods are used to account for older Windows systems. If the targeted endpoint is scanned remotely then the connection is made via Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI).
