May 1998 Challenge Solution

  • The Encrypted File was:
  • No MBK Used.
  • A Two Pass encryption process was used, therefore, a Two Pass decryption process needs to be applied.
  • Perform the first (according to screen shot 1) and then the second (according to screen shot 2)
  • The Source User Name, Target User Name, Description & Passwords are listed in the screen captures below. PLEASE TYPE EXACTLY, Case Sensitive.
  • First Pass:
    The Transaction Code was 0497-4875, The Authentication Code was: 8037-4631 (if you got a different one, you've misspelled the passwords, retype and try again!)
  • Second Pass:
    The Transaction Code was 8017-0277, The Authentication Code was: 0031-4211 (if you got a different one, you've misspelled the passwords, retype and try again!)
  • MAKE SURE your computer real-time clock is accurate since DLA was used !
  • The resulting file will be welcome.gif (This is a GIF Picture).
  1. A multiple pass process have an enormous power since even if a brute force attack stumbles on the right combination, there is no indication since the contents of the file after 1 pass is only binary junk. VME allows the user to create UNLIMITED multi pass encryption sessions.
