Thanks for the pointer.
I talked with Amber Schroader in charge of marketing at the company. She
stated that because PGP is such a strong encryption that attempted
recoveries must apply SOL theory (as in "something out of luck"). In other
words, it won't always work and since the performance is lower, they
literally give it away with their other modules.
One other point of interest: in talking with Amber she mentioned that PDF
files are often being used to smuggle intellectual property out of the
company. The reason is that these people normally use PDF files in their
work so it won't show up as an anomaly in most security auditing software.
Casts a different light on the Dmitry Sklyarov action.
