backupkeys

lsadump::backupkeys dumps the DPAPI backup keys from the Domain Controller (cf. dumping DPAPI secrets). By holding the backup keys any user's master key can be decrypted and as a result the users' secrets can be decrypted. It has the following command line arguments:
  • /export: export the output as .pvk which means "private key"
  • /secret: at the time of writing, November 1st 2021, we don't know what this option refers to
  • /system: the target DC hostname
  • /guid: The szGuid value. It can be found at C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Credentials, C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Credentials and C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Protect\SID. It can also be obtained with sekurlsa::dpapi
This command requires elevated privileges (by previously running privilege::debug or by executing Mimikatz as the NT-AUTHORITY\SYSTEM account).
