- Reads .BEK files and prints information about them
dislocker-bek [-f file.bek]
Dislocker has been designed to read BitLocker encrypted partitions under a Linux

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.
