People try this stuff out, sometimes develop a working patch, then abandon it (usually within a month). To be honest, I expect that your effort will be similar in that respect. ;-) I agree with Nick's advice - you should search the archives of this mailing list. Here are a couple of good search queries: http://search.gmane.org/?query=mpi&group=gmane.comp.security.openwall.john.user http://search.gmane.org/?query=parallel&group=gmane.comp.security.openwall.john.user Also, there are 5 different JtR/MPI hacks in this FTP directory: ftp://ftp.openwall.com/pub/projects/john/contrib/mpi/ I suggest that you start with the README. -- Alexander Peslyak <solar at openwall.com> GPG key ID: 5B341F15 fp: B3FB 63F4 D7A3 BCCC 6F6E FC55 A2FC 027C 5B34 1F15 http://www.openwall.com - bringing security into open computing environments -- To unsubscribe, e-mail john-users-unsubscribe@...ts.openwall.com and reply to the automated confirmation request that will be sent to you.
