Modern Password Cracking as a Methodology


  • Joshua Platz

Come and witness the world’s fastest password cracking solution. With new research performed, and a platform created I have created a distributed system to crack passwords at the speed of one trillion guesses per second.

My research into password cracking started with the 2012 LinkedIn password dump and I have continually perfected my techniques.

Let’s first talk about the tools and techniques, then we can talk about cloud performance vs DIY vs commercial solutions.

Finally, let’s get to the point where we can stop saying “How long would it take to crack this password”, but rather how MUCH does it cost to crack this password.
