Date: Fri, 24 Feb 2006 03:42:13 +0300 From: Solar Designer <solar@...nwall.com> To: announce@...ts.openwall.com, john-users@...ts.openwall.com Subject: interview on John the Ripper 1.7; jumbo patch Hi, I've got two things to announce: 1. SecurityFocus has just published an interview with me about John the Ripper 1.7. "Federico Biancuzzi interviews Solar Designer, creator of the popular John the Ripper password cracker. Solar Designer discusses what's new in version 1.7, the advantages of popular cryptographic hashes, the relative speed at which many passwords can now be cracked, and how one can choose strong passphrases (forget passwords) that are harder to break." The interview can be found here: http://www.securityfocus.com/columnists/388 2. The contributed resources list on John the Ripper homepage has been updated to include a jumbo patch for version 1.7 and a package of 1.7 with the jumbo patch applied pre-compiled for Win32. The jumbo patch enables processing of many password hash types and ciphers that are not supported by the official JtR. You can get this right here: http://www.openwall.com/john/ Here's the "john --test" output for 1.7 with the jumbo patch on a P4 2.8 GHz running Owl 2.0: Benchmarking: Traditional DES [64/64 BS MMX]...
