File Structure

Offset Size Description
0x0 0x8 magic "pfsSKKey"
0x8 0x4 Type (always 2)
0xC 0x4 00 Filler
0x10 0x10 IV for encrypted key
0x20 0x10 Encrypted key
0x30 0x20 HMAC Value

The first step is to check the HMAC of the file. The process is to use the HMAC key from the Keys#PFS_Secret_Keys page to check the HMAC at position 0x30 in the file. If it is correct, it proceeds to use the pfsSKKey_EncKey to decrypt the value at 0x30 using the value at 0x20 as the IV.
