There are different kinds of victory requirements: hi personal skills of members, easy collaboration, easy distribution, big rough hardware power, fast cracking software, good workflow to make cracking intelligent. All of these factors could be improved by software and/or preparation. For instance, hi personal skills needed to write john rules could be lowered using helper software with tips, ability to try new rules easily, rules auto creation or assistance based on examples. Easy collaboration could be achieved using special software with social features like collaborative attack editing, voting for attacks to be used, easy reviewing. And so on. I would like to emphasize social (wiki-like) features to improve collaboration and transparent fully automated distribution built into the system. Also I would like to see helper scripts for attack development there. I have developed some scripts to help in password patterns search and quality measurement after the contest. Announce: http://www.openwall.com/lists/john-users/2011/08/09/3 I think such tool could be interesting not only for contest but also for pentesting companies that have a lot of hashes (from different places) to crack in a limited time with different priorities having several pentesters. I know that distribution is a demanded feature and is valuable just alone. So maybe it is reasonable to split it from other things. What do you think? Regards, Aleksey Cherepanov
