Password Cracking: Cutting Edge Techniques

May 16, 2012 1:00 p.m. (ET)

In this hour long Webinar... Password crackers such as John the Ripper ("JtR") are an integral part of a forensic practitioner's toolkit. However, many of us just use the default "rules" defined in the configuration file rather than using optimized rules. But in real-world settings users are choosing more complex passwords. This behavior is enforced/encouraged in corporate environments by password complexity and rotation policies. In this presentation, we will demonstrate how JtR's default rule-set can be improved to crack tens of thousands of additional passwords.
