Date: Tue, 2 Mar 2010 23:32:01 +0300 From: Solar Designer <solar@...nwall.com> To: announce@...ts.openwall.com Subject: [openwall-announce] JtR 1.7.5-jumbo-1 builds; jumbo patch update; passwdqc wiki page Hi, This is to announce three items at once: 1. Erik Winkler has contributed Win32 and Mac OS X builds of John the Ripper 1.7.5 with revision 1 of the jumbo patch. I've placed these into the contrib/ directory and updated the links at: http://www.openwall.com/john/#contrib The Mac OS X build is usable on a wide range of Mac hardware and versions of Mac OS X - it is a universal binary with four architectures and it is statically-linked against Erik's special build of OpenSSL. Additionally, it uses faster bitslice DES S-box code for PowerPC with AltiVec by Dumplinger Boy (Dango-Chu). I posted some further detail on the Mac OS X build to john-users: http://www.openwall.com/lists/john-users/2010/03/02/3 2. The jumbo patch for JtR 1.7.5 has been updated to revision 2. It turned out that I had inadvertently omitted a file from a pre-1.7.5 CVS commit introducing the "p" numeric variable into the word mangling rules engine. I've included this functionality into 1.7.5-jumbo-2 now, and indeed it will be in the next official version of JtR. Additionally, this update of the jumbo patch adds support for external filters to the Markov mode (patch by Simon Marechal). http://www.openwall.com/john/#contrib http://www.openwall.com/lists/john-users/2010/03/02/2 3. A wiki page on passwdqc (our password/passphrase strength checking and policy enforcement toolset) has been setup with pointers to user-created OS-specific instructions and packages of passwdqc: http://openwall.info/wiki/passwdqc http://www.openwall.com/passwdqc/ You are encouraged to register for a wiki account and add more content to the passwdqc page, as well as to create sub-pages (perhaps with instructions specific to your OS).
