Subject: Junos Pulse VPN Client (Saved Passwords)

Hello John Users,

I was wondering if any John users or devs has ever examined Junos Pulse VPN client passwords. Specifically, the ones that are stored when a user saves the VPN connection settings. On Windows machines, the password seems to be stored in the registry. When there are multiple different connection types (full v split tunnel, etc) that have been save then there are multiple registry entries. Here is a sample path:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Juniper Networks\Junos Pulse\User Data\ive:2eed21ed-ab06-4244-a8f6-12fa59b838a1\Password1]

This is a REG_BINARY type. I can edit it (remove or change a byte) and the VPN connection will fail, place it back and it works again. They seem to be encrypted somehow. So I was curious if anyone on the list may have figured this format out and used John to crack them?
