Date: Wed, 23 Jun 2010 06:46:12 +0400 From: Solar Designer <solar@...nwall.com> To: announce@...ts.openwall.com Subject: [openwall-announce] passwdqc updates; JtR SHA-crypt/OpenMP tutorials; JtR MPI patch Hi, This is to announce several things at once: 0. Besides staying on this mailing list, it is now possible to receive more timely updates by following us on Twitter: http://twitter.com/openwall I've already made a few initial tweets to set the expectations. 1. A new version of our password/passphrase strength checker, passwdqc 1.2.2, has been released. This version makes minor Makefile updates to make the "install" and "uninstall" targets with their default settings friendlier to Solaris systems: http://www.openwall.com/passwdqc/ At the same time, a wiki page with detailed Solaris-specific instructions on setting up passwdqc has been created: http://openwall.info/wiki/passwdqc/solaris 2. A Python package re-implementing some algorithms from passwdqc has been created by Alastair Houghton. It is found on the passwdqc contributed resources list: http://www.openwall.com/passwdqc/#contrib http://alastairs-place.net/pwtools/ 3. Detailed tutorials on cracking/auditing SHA-crypt hashed user passwords on recent Ubuntu, Fedora, and Solaris 10 systems have been posted to the john-users mailing list, separately for Linux (using Fedora 12 as the specific example): http://www.openwall.com/lists/john-users/2010/06/20/3 and for Solaris 10: http://www.openwall.com/lists/john-users/2010/06/20/2 These include optional OpenMP parallelization instructions and examples (to use multiple CPUs and/or CPU cores). (These same instructions will work for bcrypt and SunMD5 hashes as well.) 4. The jumbo patch for John the Ripper has been updated further to revision 1.7.6-jumbo-3, and the MPI parallelization patch has been updated to apply on top of this revision: http://www.openwall.com/john/#contrib http://www.openwall.com/lists/john-users/2010/06/23/1 Alexander
