Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Larry Glusman, and welcome to my course, AccessData Password Recovery Toolkit, or PRTK. I'm a network administrator at a nonprofit in Illinois. If you need to gain access to password‑protected files, whether it's for a police investigation or an internal corporate investigation, PRTK is the tool for you. It can quickly and easily generate huge brute force attacks based on included data or on data that you provide. In this course, we're going to teach you everything you need to know to get PRTK up and running and how to effectively use it to find passwords for a variety of different file types. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include installing PRTK and DNA, using the included dictionary tool, creating custom rules and profiles, and of course decrypting files and containers. By the end of this course, you'll be ready to start using PRTK or DNA to find passwords to gain access to your encrypted files. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with basic Microsoft Windows use and should know what a password‑protected file is. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to use PRTK with the AccessData Password Recovery Toolkit course, at Pluralsight.
