Microsoft shakes off "BitLocker cracked" claims
Microsoft senior director Paul Cooke has rubbished claims that the software giants hard drive encryption tool, BitLocker, has been "cracked".
Several reports over the last few weeks have highlighted weaknesses regarding BitLocker Drive Encryption (BDE) and some have claimed commercial software can "crack" BitLocker. One report from Arstechnica incorrectly claims that a new tool released by software firm Passware "cracks" BitLocker. In a blog posting on Monday, Cooke rubbished this claim stating "the tool 'recovers encryption keys for hard drives' which relies on the assumption that a physical image of memory is accessible, which is not the case if you follow BitLocker's best practices guidance."
