john-devkit: 100 Hash Types Later

Want to visit   +37

Author: Aleksey Cherepanov

Speeds in hash cracking grow. The number of hashing algorithms grows. Work needed to maintain universal cracker grows too. The problem gave birth to john-devkit, an advanced code generator for the famous password cracker John the Ripper. More than 100 hash types are implemented within john-devkit. Its key aspects will be discussed: separation of algorithms, optimizations and output for different computing devices, simple intermediate representation of hashing algorithms, complexity of optimizations for humans and machines, bitslicing, comparison of speeds.
