This $299 Tool Cracks BitLocker, PGP, And TrueCrypt Disks In Real-Time

Anonymous Coward writes | about a year ago

Encryption 1

An anonymous reader writes "Russian firm ElcomSoft on Thursday announced the release of Elcomsoft Forensic Disk Decryptor (EFDD), a new forensic tool that can reportedly access information stored in disks and volumes encrypted with desktop and portable versions of BitLocker, PGP, and TrueCrypt. EFDD runs on all 32-bit and 64-bit editions of Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7, as well as Windows 2003 and Windows Server 2008. The price tag isn’t outrageous, but EFDD will still set you back a solid $299."

This reads saved passwords. It does not crack. (1)

From site selling it [elcomsoft.com] ,

* Acquires protection keys from RAM dumps, hibernation files
* Extracts all the keys from a memory dump at once if there is more than one crypto container in the system

so this merely extracts the cached passwords from memory rather than "cracking" anything, realtime or otherwise. "Realtime" in this context refers to the fact that the area has to be mounted (or recently so?) so its keys are still available unencrypted.

This should serve as a reminder that you don't really want your encrypted areas decrypted unless you are actively using them.
