Have you ever stumbled across a file that you wanted to access but couldn’t due to the fact that it was password protected? Password cracking is a topic covered in depth in penetration testing courses but rarely in digital forensics or OSINT, even though it’s extremely applicable.

In this workshop, we’ll briefly cover the theory behind how passwords work but will spend most of our time covering practical techniques to access password-protected Office documents, PDFs, Zip files, and more. We’ll discuss free tools and resources you can start using immediately and provide password-protected files for you to practice on!
