NAME

       reglookup - Windows NT+ registry reader/lookup tool

SYNOPSIS

       reglookup [options] registry-file

DESCRIPTION

       reglookup  is designed to read windows registry elements and print them out to stdout in a
       CSV-like format. It has filtering options to narrow the focus of the output. This tool  is
       designed to work with on Windows NT-based registries.

OPTIONS

       reglookup accepts the following parameters:

       -p prefix-filter
              Specify  a  path  prefix  filter. Only keys/values under this registry path will be
              output.

       -t type-filter
              Specify a type filter. Only elements which match this registry data  type  will  be
              printed. Acceptable values are: NONE, SZ, EXPAND_SZ, BINARY, DWORD, DWORD_BE, LINK,
              MULTI_SZ, RSRC_LIST, RSRC_DESC, RSRC_REQ_LIST, QWORD and KEY .

       -h     Enables the printing of a column header row. (default)

       -i     Printed values inherit the timestamp of their parent key, which  is  printed  along
              with  them.  Note  that  this timestamp is not necessarily meaningful for any given
              value values because timestamps are saved on keys only and you  cannot  tell  which
              value has been modified since a change to any value of a given key would update the
              time stamp.

       -H     Disables the printing of a column header row.

       -s     Adds five additional columns to output containing  information  from  key  security
              descriptors  and  rarely  used  fields.  The columns are: owner, group, sacl, dacl,
              class.  (This feature's output has not been extensively tested.)

       -S     Disables the printing of security descriptor information. (default)

       -v     Verbose output.

       registry-file
              Required argument. Specifies the location of the registry file to read. The  system
              registry files should be found under: %SystemRoot%/system32/config.

OUTPUT

       reglookup  generates comma-separated values (CSV) and writes them to stdout. The format is
       designed to simplify parsing algorithms of other tools by quoting CSV  special  characters
       using a common hexadecimal format. Specifically, special characters or non-ascii bytes are
       converted to "%XX" where XX is the hexadecimal value for the byte.

       The number of columns or fields in each line is fixed for a given run of the program,  but
       may  vary based on the command line options provided.  See the header line for information
       on which fields are available and what they contain.

       Some fields in some lines may contain sub-fields which require additional  delimiters.  If
       these  sub-delimiters  occur in these sub-fields, they are also encoded in the same way as
       commas or other special characters are.  Currently, the second, third,  and  fourth  level
       delimiters  are  "|", ":", and " ", respectively. These are particularly important to take
       note of when security attributes are printed. Please note that these delimiters may  occur
       in fields that are not sub-delimited, and should not be interpreted as special.

       Security attributes of registry keys have a complex structure which is outlined here. Each
       key will generally have an associated ACL (Access Control List), which is made up of  ACEs
       (Access  Control  Entries).  Each  ACE  is  delimited by the secondary delimiter mentioned
       above, "|". The fields within an ACE are delimited by the third-level delimiter, ":",  and
       consist  of a SID, the ACE type (ALLOW, DENY, etc), a list of access rights, and a list of
       flags. The last two fields are delimited by the fourth-level delimiter "  ".  These  final
       lists  are  simply human-readable interpretations of bits. The access rights abbreviations
       are listed below along with their Microsoft-assigned names:

             QRY_VAL       KEY_QUERY_VALUE
             SET_VAL       KEY_SET_VALUE
             CREATE_KEY    KEY_CREATE_SUB_KEY
             ENUM_KEYS          KEY_ENUMERATE_SUB_KEYS
             NOTIFY        KEY_NOTIFY
             CREATE_LNK    KEY_CREATE_LINK
             WOW64_64      KEY_WOW64_64KEY
             WOW64_32      KEY_WOW64_32KEY
             DELETE        DELETE
             R_CONT        READ_CONTROL
             W_DAC         WRITE_DAC
             W_OWNER       WRITE_OWNER
             SYNC          SYNCHRONIZE
             SYS_SEC       ACCESS_SYSTEM_SECURITY
             MAX_ALLWD          MAXIMUM_ALLOWED
             GEN_A         GENERIC_ALL
             GEN_X         GENERIC_EXECUTE
             GEN_W         GENERIC_WRITE
             GEN_R         GENERIC_READ

       And the meaning of each flag is:

             OI  Object Inherit
             CI  Container Inherit
             NP  Non-Propagate
             IO  Inherit Only
             IA  Inherited ACE

               http://support.microsoft.com/kb/220167

       Note that some of the bits listed above have either not been allocated  by  Microsoft,  or
       simply  aren't  documented.  If  any  bits  are  set  in  the above two fields that aren't
       recognized, a hexadecimal representation of all of these mystery bits will be included  in
       the output. For instance, if the lowest bit and third lowest bit were not recognized while
       being set, the number "0x5" would be included as an element in the list.

       While the ACL/ACE output format is mostly stable at  this  point,  minor  changes  may  be
       introduced in future versions.

EXAMPLES

       To read and print the contents of an entire system registry file:

            reglookup /mnt/win/c/WINNT/system32/config/system

       To limit the output to just those entries under the Services key:

            reglookup -p /ControlSet002/Services /mnt/win/c/WINNT/system32/config/system

       To limit the output to all registry values of type BINARY:

            reglookup -t BINARY /mnt/win/c/WINNT/system32/config/system

       And to limit the output to BINARY values under the Services key:

            reglookup -t BINARY -p /ControlSet002/Services /mnt/win/c/WINNT/system32/config/system

BUGS

       This  program  has  been smoke-tested against most current Windows target platforms, but a
       comprehensive test suite has not yet  been  developed.   (Please  report  results  to  the
       development  mailing  list if you encounter any bugs. Sample registry files and/or patches
       are greatly appreciated.)

       The SID conversions haven't been carefully checked for accuracy.

       The MTIME conversions appear correctly produce the stored UTC timestamp.  However, due  to
       the  periodicity  of registry writes, and the complexity of the conversion, a small amount
       of error (on the order of seconds) may be possible.  The  documentation  available  online
       from Microsoft on this field is very poor.
