Data access

Password aegis can be acclimated to assure the agreeable of the .pst files.4 However, Microsoft admits that the countersign adds actual little protection, due to the actuality of frequently accessible accoutrement which can abolish or artlessly bypass the countersign protection.5 The countersign to admission the table is stored after the aboriginal and aftermost XOR CRC-32 accumulation representation of itself in the .pst file. Outlook checks to accomplish abiding that it matches the user-specified countersign and refuses to accomplish if there is no match. The abstracts is clear by the libpst activity code.

Microsoft (MS) offers three ethics for the encryption setting: none, compressible, and high.

None the .pst abstracts is stored as apparent text.

Compressible the .pst abstracts is encrypted with a byte-substitution blank with a anchored barter table.

Aerial (sometimes alleged "better") encryption is agnate to a WWII German Enigma blank with three anchored rotors.

Note that neither of the two encryption modes uses the user-specified countersign as any allotment of the key for the encryption.
