After you have run a security Scan and received your encrypted report file, you must transfer the report file to a PC that has the SekChek Classic software installed. Select the file and enter your secret pass-phrase to decrypt the report package.
To decrypt your report package
From the SekChek Classic software on your PC: select the tab for the appropriate SekChek tool; click Decrypt; and select the report package. You can also drag the encrypted report file onto SekChek’s main form.
Enter your secret pass-phrase
SekChek will prompt you to enter your secret pass-phrase in order to decrypt the report package. The decryption process will create a collection of MS-Word and MS-Access or MS-Excel report files in the same directory.
Naming conventions for encrypted report packages
- AS/400: SEKASR.SDE
- Active Directory and Windows Server: SEKWIR.SDE
- UNIX: SEKUNR.SDE
- Netware: SEKNER.SDE
Misplaced your decryption password?
Request your 15 most recently used passwords from the SekChek software on your PC:
- Select the Utilities tab
- Select the Decryption passwords check box
- Click Send Request
You can also do this manually by sending an email with the Subject line ‘SRequest=FileCodes’ (minus the quotes) to firstname.lastname@example.org
You will receive an automated response from SekChek’s service request system after a few minutes.
You cannot decrypt SekChek files with other products, such as WinZip
