== File Format ==
+
The '''libluksde''' package contains a library and applications to read the [[Linux Unified Key Setup (LUKS)]] volumes.
  
The Windows Shortcut file has the extension .lnk.
+
== Tools ==
It basically is a metadata file, specific for the Microsoft Windows platform and is interpreted by the Windows Shell.
+
The '''libluksde''' package contains the following tools:
The file format indicates that these files contain a specific signature, 0x4C (4C 00 00 00) at offset 0 within the file/stream. Further, the GUID (CLSID) 00021401-0000-0000-c000-000000000046 stored at byte offset 4 makes a good identifier.
+
* '''luksdeinfo''', which shows information about LUKS Volumes.
 +
* '''luksdemount''', which FUSE mounts LUKS Volumes.
  
Understanding this file format can be extremely useful for an analyst, as not only are shortcut files still employed as of Windows 7, but the binary format is also used in the numbered streams within *.automaticDestinations-ms [[Jump Lists]] files on [[Windows 7]] and [[Windows 8|8]].
