Detect PGP - encrypted file

Created: 13 Aug 2012 • Updated: 13 Aug 2012 | 1 comment

Is there a way to detect if the file is encrypted by PGP using Symantec PGP SDK ?  Looks like Symantec DLP (Vontu)  can detect PGP-encrypted file, but I do not see any calls in PGP SDK to help detect encrypted file. No decryption required, just detection.

Thanks !

There are several ways, one of them in the same file transfer network.
But to detect whether it is safe or if encrypts the exact moment of execution, a good policy and comendavel because some applications can even steal information normally. one of them is using social engineering technique d with the tool backtrack
