I did the initial work for this enhancment a couple years ago on John 184.108.40.206, and earlier this summer decided to revisit it to update it for the official 1.7.8 release, not -jumbo. It appears the compile-time stuff assumes the module is a single source file, I have to consolidate 5 or so source files to follow that format. The project also includes a piece that lives on OpenVMS, i.e. the uaf_to_passwd program to convert the native password hash data to a ciphertext suitable for JtR to process. > >> I'm still working on cleaning up the kit for demonstrating the feature (an updated OpenVMS module with mixed-case support). > > Please submit your OpenVMS stuff as a patch for -jumbo.

I also produced a openvms_fmt_plug.c for the jumbo version that appears to function correctly. I left the FMT_LOADER function in the code, so it works either way. Download attachment "john_1.7.8.jumbo-5.plugin.diff" of type "application/octet-stream" (8763 bytes) Download attachment "openvms_fmt_plug.zip" of type "application/zip" (23733 bytes) The module is naturally multi-threaded, but I disabled it since I didn't know a simple way to test for the presence of pthread support. On my little Mac min (2 Ghz)i, incremental mode cruises along at 500,000 c/s when using both cores. >>Dave
