Password Cracking - Beyond the Basics

  • Jon Gorenflo
  • Wednesday, August 28th, 7:15pm - 8:15pm

Password cracking can be as easy as typing "john hashes.txt", but what if that doesn't crack the one password you need? Which password cracker should you use, John the Ripper or Hashcat? Have you customized your word list to the target? Is the wordlist optimized for your attack type? What if youre password lists are in ASCII, and the password your trying to crack is in unicode? If you have a GPU, are you fully utilizing it? If you dont have a GPU, are you using maximizing every core in your processor? Listen in to learn how to create better password lists, pick the right cracking tools, get the most out of your hardware, and learn about some lesser discussed tools and features that can increase your chances of success in a high stakes password cracking session.
