I was afraid reading this: This $299 tool is reportedly capable of decrypting BitLocker, PGP, and TrueCrypt disks in real-time
Seem to me that PGP and other sensible tools have to lock memory to ensure they where not be swapped, nor hibernated.
Seem to me that programmers know this, from as long time swap and hibernation files exists!
So I dont know the target operating system (as I like to work with efficient tools, I've never work with this. But I know his poor reputation about core system).
My question: Could that be true!? Or is this a hoax?
If true, this give me another argument to tell some to migrate, but as everybody know I'm paranoid, nobody would believe or understand the importance of this.
To be more explicit: I'm an old computer actor, so I know a lot of things but even, while I do some sensible installation, like crypted disks or messages, everything is locked by default (cannot be swapped and will be unmounted before hibernation). If I try to build sensible thing in a less secured manner, I'll be warned.
Working for people who don't know anything about computer must imply some responsabilities. So I understand, reading this, that a huge amount of people, working with confidence on his registrated os (they should pay dearly) are much less protected than they think!
Well known as a paranoid, I won't present this to my customers without your precious feed-back! ;-)
As Rory Alsop said (thanks):
Elcomsoft have decided to make this product for windows.... their favorite platform.
But I don't know so
efficient tools working for Linux, nor even for Mac OS.
In fact I don't need them, but if I know they exist, I will need them! :-b
Many thanks for your time you're reading me.
