How much I’ll persist with this, I don’t yet know, but commercial work directed my attention to some particular aspects of BitLocker and I have thought since to develop my curiosity into a wider study. My estimation has always been that BitLocker offers only very little for programmatic interaction and so does not justify my interest, no matter how much others say that knowing its workings (and its leavings) is important for security and forensics. On these last counts, I am surprised to find how very little has been published about BitLocker as any sort of documentation, and how very little of this little seems reliable. Anyway, some hints of publishable results from my own look into it begin to show. I may yet withdraw this early sketch, though the other side to this is that by announcing here that it’s under way, I spur myself to continuing with it!
