DESCRIPTION

Dislocker has been designed to read BitLocker encrypted partitions under a Linux system. The driver used to read volumes encrypted in Windows system versions of the Vista to 10 and BitLocker-To-Go encrypted partitions,that's USB/FAT32 partitions.
BEK file is a BitLocker Encryption Key. BitLocker Drive Encryption is a full disk encryption feature included with the Microsoft's Windows versions Vista to 10. It is designed to protect data by providing encryption for entire volumes.
The software works with driver composed of a library, with multiple binaries using this library. Decrypting the partition, you have to give it a mount point where, once keys are decrypted, a file named dislocker-file appears. This file is a virtual NTFS partition, so you can mount it as any NTFS partition and then read from or write to it. Writing to the NTFS virtual file will change the underlying BitLocker partition content.
This tool is useful in cryptography managing and forensics investigations.
