Hello,

I'm am new to computer forensics. I am currently enrolled in a Digital Forensics I course and am trying to explore outside the course material. I personally have been working as a system administrator for the past 3 years. In class we were given a test image to load into FTK. we are using a free version, which is v1.071 - DEMO. We are using the image to get an introduction to FTK, by using index search to find key data, bookmarking that info and then creating reports.

In the image I noticed that there are several files that FTK has marked as encrypted. Several word documents, and 2 PGP secret key rings. I exported all of the files and the word documents are password protected. My question is how can I decrypt those Word files to gain access?

Also in a forensic scenario, what would an investigator do when confronted with encrypted files? And what tools are available to try and crack them?

PRTK is the companion tool to FTK.
