PGD files :(

Post Posted: Oct 31, 05 13:15

Hello All,
I am a newbie to digital forensics and havent found any article about the steps i should take after cloning of a suspect hard-disk
I would like to know what software are suited for examining?

Secondly I have got a disk as an assignment and i have found PGD files in it. Any one with any idea how to view these files?
I guess these are PGP Disk Files but not sure about it?

If they are is there any tool to find out the encryption key??

well i hope u people will help me

There are a lot of threads on examining tools in the forums; EnCase is the most widely used (but most expensive), Access FTK is also good and you should take a look at WinHex - the basic version is free. There's plenty of good free stuff aorund especially if you use Linux.

Use filext.com to find file extensions. PGD is explained there.

Maybe your 'suspect' has left the encryption key in plain text in a Word document or email? Those are the easiet places to begin your search.
