ccat - cat a encrypted file
ccat [ -3ms ] file [ ... ]
ccat prompts for a passphrase and decrypts (onto standard output) the
specified CFS encrypted files. If a corresponding CFS IV file
(.pvect_*) file exists in the same directory, it is used to perturb the
file accordingly. By default, files are decrypted using standard 2-key
hybrid mode single-DES. The -3 option specifies 2-key hybrid mode
triple DES. The -m option specifies 1-key hybrid mode MacGuffin, and
-s specifies SAFER-SK128.
ccat is intended to assist in emergency access to CFS directories when
no machine running a CFS daemon is available. It is ordinarily used in
conjunction with cname(8).
Does not work with new format (1.3 and later) directories.
This program is just blindingly slow. There’s no way to tell if an
incorrect passphrase was entered, except that the program will produce
