I am guessing that by ".skr files" you mean PGP secret keyrings and by "opening" you mean cracking the passphrase. John the Ripper currently has no support for this, nor is such support planned. Thus, this topic is not to be discussed on this mailing list, unless someone would be willing to post some valuable technical detail, contribute a patch for John, etc. However, since this question already got in here, I'll point out that I am in fact aware of a product - commercial and fairly expensive - that would (attempt to) crack PGP secret key passphrases. It's Elcomsoft Distributed Password Recovery: http://www.openwall.com/passwords/pgp-secret-keys-disks-archives (This web page is very new. Perhaps I should add the ancient PGPCrack to it, just for the sake of completeness.) -- Alexander Peslyak <solar at openwall.com> GPG key ID: B35D3598 fp: 6429 0D7E F130 C13E C929 6447 73C3 A290 B35D 3598 http://www.openwall.com - bringing security into open computing environments
